Discourse has turned on HTTPS for our instance (). This means that we can enable OAuth login.
We have a bunch of options, but Google and GitHub stand out to me. Google because all existing users of elm-discuss have a login there they can reuse. GitHub because, well, we’re a programming language community and almost everyone has it.
I don’t want to disable username/password logins, but should we enable OAuth? If so, those two? More? Less?
What are the other options?
I’d say maybe Twitter in addition to those above? It wouldn’t be terribly hard to do, and would reduce signup friction.
I think we definitely want at least Google and GitHub, so I’m going to add those.
So there’s a bit of weirdness gonig on with the GitHub auth. Because I created the application and hooked it up, it asks if I can have access to people’s accounts .
I requested to transfer the app to the elm-lang GitHub org, which is probably where it belongs anyway.
