I am not the author of the module, but rather a newbie is yii trying to get my web application which uses yii-user to integrate with some social-login mechanism. Unfortunately, I have tried yiiauth, hybridauth and both of them failed to achieve this.
I am sorry to say that this one doesn’t work for me too.
I find it surprising that since social authentication is one of the first thing that most clients ask, why is there no robust solution upto now?
Or else, at least an official tutorial to merge these 3 behaviors:
Social Login with an entry into the user database.
Hope to hear some comments. Better yet, praying to see a solution.
Before I get flamed, I have tried every possible solution out there on these forums. None of them work . I have been at it for more than a week, and am almost thinking of writing everything from scratch. To hell with DRY!
Wish I had a solution for you…did you get any closure on this one? If you posted the specific problem, others might be able to help. I’ve noticed as well that there isn’t really a ‘recommended’ way of integrating social login or services. You’d figure by now Yii would have a standard, go-to solution, but alas, it does not.
I think you are right in saying yii-user, yii-auth and hoauth seems to be the path that is forming, but other than what is included on the extension pages, there is not much good info for going about implementing this combo.
In the future, I am planning on backing out of YUM and heading down the path indicated above, but ripping out all my custom reg/auth code is not something I’m looking forward to.
I agree, the documentation for hoauth is scattered around the yii extensions, forums and GIT. I found it difficult to follow, especially since I’ve never used yii-user or hoauth before. One of the instructions says to use yii-auth and the other says to use yii-user.
