This plugin is a blessing. It might be built into Discourse soon, but can we have it installed right now? For mostly obvious reasons, it seems like a huge necessity for this forum, at least to me.
Yes! You have my vote!
We’ll look into it. Thanks y’all.
No problem @ismh!
It looks like the plugin will be included in the next version of Discourse, but I cannot be bothered to wait that long!
As I understand, three feature requires a paid developer account.
I assume that they have a developer account, right?
all good until they get into any sort of legal dispute with Apple. After the Epic Games fiasco I stopped using Sign in with Apple anywhere. I’m locked in enough as it is!
Why would that ever happen?
why does any legal dispute happen? I mentioned Epic Games. Did anyone see that war coming?
I also mentioned being locked in. That’s a bigger issue tbh.
‘Sign in with Apple’ is basically giving Apple the key to every app/service on your phone. And giving that key to Apple is going to make leaving them near impossible."
Why would Discourse sue Apple? I don’t get what you’re trying to say.
This is nothing new. If you’re a member of this forum, you’re likely enveloped in the Apple ecosystem.
Also, other SSO providers are no exception.
well, it is a good practice not to keep all your eggs in one basket. In particular with regard of logins…
You can be well enveloped in Apple’s hardware / software ecosystem and still it is good practice to get other services outside Apple
This reasoning is applicable to a lot of other companies, in the tech world or not…
Okay, but I don’t get why that’s a good reason to not add Sign in with Apple support for this forum.
I suspect that @dixonge comment was intended in a broader scope than this specific forum, but I’m not in his mind, so
We’re looking into implementing this. Thanks yall.
Oh, that makes sense. I don’t get what it has to do with implementing Sign in with Apple in this specific forum though. This forum is for discussion heavily related to Apple, so I don’t see why adding Sign in with Apple would be a bad thing. Regardless, I’m glad that you were able to clear things up.
That is great news! I’m really excited, although that’s been the case since December.
well the holidays were bonkers so we’re really totes looking into doing it now
Ah, okay. That just makes me even more excited!
I can see why the forum was down for maintenance now. It was well worth it.
Thank you guys so much! You may lock this topic now.
