In terms of usability, it'd be great if there was a plugin that allowed users to login using their facebook/twitter/openid or other account that the user would like to use. This would help in lifting an additional barricade to user adoption of redmine.

Redmine supported OpenID (#699) already. I'm not sure of the value of allowing Facebook or Twitter authentications. Perhaps someone could build a plugin to support these authentication types.

In terms of reaching a larger user base, having multiple routes to login into redmine seems useful. Maybe not?

#3 Updated by Eric Davis about 13 years ago

I could see those being useful, but not as a core feature. If they were built as a plugin that could be installed, I'd be happy to help the developer if they some core modifications. What does everyone else think?

i agree that as a plugin, it would be great. unfortunately, i am not a programmer, but hopefully someone out there has the expertise to do this.

I am going to write this plugin. I may publish it this weekend. If you intend to write or request for features, please comment here.

When logging in, it'd be nice to have a drop down menu from which you could choose the site you want to login thru.

Found this site that seems to have a good tutorial on how to do it.

Hello Ky,

I was wondering what the current status of this plugin is?
