Twitter based login for Plone

Project description


A PAS plugin to login into a Plone Site using Twitter.

Installation and getting started

Add ‘cs.auth.twitter’ to your buildout.cfg’s eggs list.

You have to add a configuration similar to this to your buildout.cfg:

zope-conf-additional =
   <product-config beaker>
       session type     file
       session.data_dir ${buildout:directory}/var/sessions/data
       session.lock_dir ${buildout:directory}/var/sessions/lock
       session.key      beaker.session
       session.secret   this-is-my-secret-${buildout:directory}

This is needed because we are using collective.beaker to handle Twitter login session information.

Install the product in the Plone Control Panel

Create a new Twitter app at and fill in the required data in the plugin’s control panel form.


This product contains code written for collective.twitter.accounts by Franco Pellegrini (@frapell) and Hector Velarde (@hvelarde)
