PyroCMS Gets Social!

Posted: 2011-12-15
Category: PyroCMS

Two months ago I was doing some client work that ended up with me creating NinjAuth - a generic authentication layer between FuelPHP's auth package and social networks via OAuth, OAuth 2 and OpenID. I've been working on it a fair bit on and off since then and in the last week I've ported it to CodeIgniter for use with PyroCMS and it's looking brilliant! You can now use PyroCMS to drive your social site. Login and register with Facebook, Twitter, GitHub, YouTube, Tumblr, etc, attach multiple accounts to users, post blog articles to Facebook and much more on the way.

Here's a video:

I'll be working on this some more and releasing it shortly after PyroCMS 2.0 final is released, but I got a bit excited and wanted to show it off to people. I have a few more kick-ass modules and features coming out for PyroCMS shortly and it's become one hell of a platform.

Within the next few months I'm expecting an iPhone app, inline-editing and an in-Control Panel Add-on Store where people can browse addons and install with one-click. The more copies of add-ons and PyroCMS I can sell the more fun features like these I get to work on, so thanks to everyone supporting me and HappyNinjas to make fun stuff!

Looking very promising for The PyroCMS. IS this going to be as core module or does this have price tag?

el2ro: This will most likely cost a small fee, about £5 initially. I think if I start bundling things like this into the core people will complain that PyroCMS is getting too bloated.

On the other hand I don't think I should be offering it as a free download, as it is one heck of an addon.

Price sounds fair. If it would be free/in core, would it allow more easily extended modules to pop up...

Looks like a great addition, I'd happily pay £5 for it.

Hey Phil,

Hows this mod. coming along? I have a project that this would be perfect for and would rather leverage your work than have to actually code ;)

Thanks

Christian: Hey sorry it's a little behind schedule. Banff is way more fun in the winter and I'm keeping busy with Snowboarding instead of working. Back on it soon!

If you want the code in advanced let me know your GitHub username and you can help me test whats there while I work on the one or two features remaining.

Ok thanks, maybe i do not understan it very well.
If i understand this plugin will allow me to post from my blog to the social network right? but if i would allow my user to register to my blog this plugin works right?
Sorry but my english is not very well :)

Phil, does PyroSocial store data from Social Websites? Like a facebook user logs into my website, i want to store his name e-mail and facebook page...

Hi Phil!

Just got Pyrosocial... I love this! I've played around enough to get my Facebook app authenticated... but I'm hoping to incorporate some serious social features on top of this module. Is there any documentation to this module? I'll probably end up just looking through the code, but it would be nice for there to be some info about how to make use of the authentication tokens when building a social module/widget/plugin on top of pyrosocial.

Also, is there a way to turn off the auto blog posting to Facebook on a per user basis?
