MvcOpenID - An OpenID Starter Kit for ASP.NET MVC


MvcOpenID is an OpenID starter kit for ASP.NET MVC. It is first and foremost a learning tool. I've learned a lot about OpenID while developing this and commented the code a lot. Running the application and stepping through the code is the best and probably the fastest way to learn. Apart from it's educational value you can also use it as a starter kit for your ASP.NET MVC based web applications.

Status and future plans

This project has just started so I will be adding more to it. Right now there is only the basic support for OpenID.

In the future I hope to implement:

  • Pop up window for signing in to you OpenID provider.
  • AJAX pop up for signing in to you OpenID provider.
  • Make all versions available for Razor and ASPX view engines.
