Dancer2 plugin for for SPID authentication

Join the #spid-perl channel Get invited SPID on Build Status MetaCPAN Release

This Perl module is a plugin for the well-known Dancer2 web framework. It allows developers of SPID Service Providers to easily add SPID authentication to their Dancer2 applications. SPID is the Italian digital identity system, which enables citizens to access all public services with single set of credentials.

This module provides the highest level of abstraction and ease of use for integration of SPID in a Dancer2 web application. Just set a few configuration options and you'll be able to generate the HTML markup for the SPID button on the fly (to be completed) in order to place it wherever you want in your templates. This plugin will automatically generate all the routes for SAML bindings, so you don't need to perform any plumbing manually. Hooks are provided for customizing behavior.

See the example/ directory for a demo application.

This is module is based on Net::SPID which provides the lower-level framework-independent implementation of SPID for Perl.
