Reason for not wanting an auth service...

#1
So the roadmap for phase 2 mentions specifically


Quote:We are *not* looking for any shopping cart or authentication packages.

(https://forum.codeigniter.com/thread-65543.html), emphasis mine.

I was just wondering the reasons for that?

I'm developing one right now (as a service) and is designed to be flexible and make as few assumptions as possible on what it is used for and I was thinking perhaps contributing it later... that is why I'm wondering.

Just to be clear. My definition here is that the authentication service is a service which can be used to determine if a session for a given client is authenticated using and identifier (usually email, but it is an abstract identifier in my service) and a password. It should come with all the standard best practices concerning security. It doesn't make any assumptions about roles or rights.

So... completely fine if you don't want it in... just wondering...

We haven't seen any authentication package that is as platform neutral as possible, and that everyone (or even a majority) of developers can agree on. The same goes for a shopping cart.

Basically, there doesn't appear to be a "one size fits all", and we decided to leave that up to developers.

There is nothing wrong with proposing your authentication package as an addin for CI4, separate from the base framework Smile

Hey, i am just wondering if you will publish your auth service package after it's done ? Are you going to build it according to CI 4's standard and structure ? Because if you are, then I am interested to be one of your first tester.
