It is with great pleasure that JanRain, Inc. announces version 1.0 of
the Python OpenID library. This library contains packages to support
both OpenID consumers (relying parties) and servers. For back-end
storage, it supports a variety of methods, including flat file, SQL, and
In our own work on making applications OpenID enabled, we've been
reminded that every web framework is different. For that reason we've
strived to make this library general enough to fit in to any Python web
application. We also like to think the API is simple to follow. Let us
know how it works for you.
Requires: Python (versions 2.2 through 2.4)
What is this OpenID Thing Anyway?
OpenID is a decentralized identity system that provides authentication
for web applications, i.e. single sign-on for the web.
If you're interested in OpenID but this library isn't quite what you've

There's more coming.
Share and Enjoy,
