Extending TankAuth Library to include Login with Facebook, Twitter Google & Yahoo ID

Tank Auth is perhaps the most widely used authentication library for PHP-framework which is built on CodeIgniter. However the author of Tank Auth  does not seem to be actively developing to add new features.

For a recent application, I needed something that could offer features like login with third party authentication and this is where i bumped into  X Tank Auth.

As the name suggests, X Tank Auth extends the original X Tank Auth to include:

a) Facebook connect

b) Twitter login

c) Google Friend Connect buttons

d) OpenID Google


e) OpenID Yahoo

Who needs more than that ? Amongst these – we can cover more than 90% of the world internet users. The documentation and demo can be found here.
