As a dude reading through this thread, It’s so striking that almost every young woman feels the pressure to soften the description of their work with self deprecating language. Jeez. What an eye opener. Thank you for imposing the no-self deprecation rule!!!
You're right about indieauth, yeah, true :)
I looked at auth0, who have the same "you have to register a callback URL" problem. Didn't try oauth.io; thank you! I wish OpenID hadn't gone away; this was completely what it was for :)
I know right? There is some new stuff in OAuth 2 around dynamic client registration trying to solve this, but I'm not sure how widely implemented it is yet. Certainly GitHub hasn't implemented it, mayyybe Google has: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7591
Yeah. I was hoping that if I put my auth URL into indieauth AS http://github.com/myusername, then it wouldn't bother following rel=me links and would just use it directly, but no. Might be an interesting enhancement, @aaronparecki? I bet @kevinmarks can tell me why it's a bad idea ;)
Not a *bad* idea, but also not the goal of indieauth.com. At some point you'll be relying on someone's Github/Google API key, either that of indieauth.com or another service. Maybe check out https://oauth.io/ or https://auth0.com/
