Use your domain name as an IndieAuth provider

ProcessWire IndieAuth Module

A ProcessWire module to use your domain as an IndieAuth provider.

IndieAuth is an identity layer on top of OAuth 2.0. It can be used to obtain access tokens as well as authenticate users.


  • PHP 7+
  • ProcessWire 3


The recommended method is to use the ProcessWire admin area’s module interface. If you prefer to install manually, see below.

Navigate to Modules > New. In the Module Class Name field, enter ProcessIndieAuth.

Continue with the Setup steps.


  • Copy the template files from /extras/templates into your /site/templates directory
  • Verify that the plugin installed pages:
    • IndieAuth Metadata Endpoint
    • Authorization Endpoint
    • Token Endpoint
    • Token Revocation Endpoint
    • IndieAuth page under the admin’s Access menu

  • Assign the indieauth role to any ProcessWire users that should be allowed to use IndieAuth
  • Update the home page template, adding the module’s getLinkElements to the <head> element:

This should result in three <link> elements in the source HTML:

	<link rel="indieauth-metadata" href="/indieauth-metadata-endpoint/">
	<link rel="authorization_endpoint" href="/authorization-endpoint/">
	<link rel="token_endpoint" href="/token-endpoint/">

Installation from Github

If you prefer to manually install:

  • Create directory /site/modules/ProcessIndieAuth
  • Upload the plugin files to that directory
  • Install the module from the ProcessWire admin

Continue with the Setup steps.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
