Using jsConnect to integrate with MediaWiki?
I would like to authenticate users of a MediaWiki wiki using jsConnect and my Vanilla 2 forum user database.
My understanding of what's involved is that I need to write an AuthPlugin for authenticating against Vanilla, and that I would need to use the PHP jsConnect client library to send a jsonp query to the Vanilla instance.
There is an extension (often mentioned here in the forums) for Vanilla 1 integration: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Vanilla_Authentication - unfortunately much has changed since then, and this is not the best way to securely handle authentication anyway.
Has anyone succeeded in making this work? I would love to share a solution, as if no-one has done it I will have to write it :-)
