Javascript OpenID Selector

This is a simple Javascript OpenID selector. It has been designed so that users do not even need to know what OpenID is to use it, they simply select their account by a recognisable logo.

Take a look at the FAQ if you'd like to integrate OpenID Selector w/ Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn.

A demo based on JQuery is available here. A demo based on MooTools rather than JQuery is available here. A demo based on Prototype is also available. A Google Closure version is available in SVN trunk.

Features include:

  • Can easily add and remove provider buttons.
  • Unobtrusive Javascript - Still works with Javascript turned off.
  • Remembers OpenID provider choice by using a cookie.
  • Works with any OpenID libraries since it is just HTML and Javascript.
  • Minimal CSS styling so you can easily customise the login box.
  • CSS sprites
  • Internationalization support; Russian, Ukrainian, German, Japanese translations. French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) and Vietnamese translations are available in SVN trunk.

Tested and working with:

  • Firefox 3.0, 3.6
  • IE6, IE7, IE8
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari
  • Opera

The current version supports JQuery, MooTools and Prototype Javascript libraries.
