An all-in-one user authentication, authorization and management module for Kohana 3.3.

Build Status

What is it?

Warden is an opinionated module providing a full-stack solution for authenticating, authorizing and managing users in your application. It combines (and depends on) a number of other inGenerator modules to provide a quick and ready to integrate application component with support for:

  • Login
  • Automatic password hash upgrading
  • Logout
  • Registration
  • Password reset
  • Verify email change
  • Manage user roles and permissions
  • OAUTH authorization server

It is designed to be extensible, but will enforce more conventions and ways of doing things on you than the stock Kohana auth module. In particular, you'll need to be using view models and managing your layout as part of the view layer.


Add to your composer.json:

	"require": {
		"ingenerator/warden" : "dev-master"

Load the module in your application bootstrap. Also include the module routes unless you want to define your own routing.

	'warden' => MODPATH.'warden'



Warden is built with PHPSpec specifications - every change should be led by a new spec implementation that verifies the functionality. The specs assume a standard Kohana working directory layout and that they are being run from the root path.


We'll start by building the functionality listed above.
