AppStucco has released LDAP integration for the latest version of PyroCMS, using Ion_auth authentication libraries. AppStucco's LDAP module supports the latest release of PyroCMS so that your enterprise can provide seamless single sign-on functionality for your PyroCMS sites, while maintaining existing user authentication using LDAP or ActiveDirectory. Now your organization can leverage the power of PyroCMS and its Codeigniter core without worrying about creating multiple user accounts. The development team from AppStucco is releasing the code open source to the PyroCMS community on github under the MIT license. The screencast tutorial on how to install the free extension is on their website (http://appstucco.com/resources/blog/item/1-ldap-pyrocms-screencast) and the code is downloadable on GitHub as of today (https://github.com/appstucco/LDAP-for-PyroCMS/zipball/master)
Founded by Dan Lopez and Ben Edmunds, Open Source runs deep with them. Both of the founders have extensive backgrounds in Open Source software and community involvement, Lopez rearchitected Linux.com and has close ties to the Joomla community, and Edmunds is the author and maintainer of Ion_auth library for Codeigniter that has been integrated into the core PyroCMS. Lopez and Edmunds have been collaborating on software and project ideas for some time, and put together AppStucco during some brainstorming sessions, with a common goal to help move PyroCMS and Codeigniter development into the enterprise. Their hope is to create a thriving and growing worldwide community of active members, developers, and clients through AppStucco.
Lopez and Edmunds are aiming for the AppStucco commercial extension product library to continually grow as AppStuccos's offerings gain traction over the next several months. Lopez says that they are providing a unique blend of best-of-breed solutions to fit the budget and requirements of developers, small businesses and large enterprises. AppStucco will also be offering Joomla, CodeIgniter, Drupal, and integration expertise, though their concentration will be on enterprise and cloud Codeigniter and PyroCMS technologies for the foreseeable future. Edmunds says that the product roadmap is slated for monthly and quarterly releases, and that they expect exciting times ahead with cool new functionality that are in the works.
