The module provides a basic interface which allows users to login to your website using their Vkontakte account details, creating a single sign-on within the existing SilverStripe member system.


composer require "rchntrl/silverstripe-vkconnect" "dev-master"

[Register your website / application](https://vk.com/editapp?act=create) 
 with vk.com

Set your configuration through the SilverStripe Config API. For example I keep
my configuration in `mysite/_config/vkconnect.yml` file:

VkControllerExtension: app_id: 'MyAppID' api_secret: 'Secret'

Update the database by running `/dev/build` to add the additional fields to 
the `Member` table and make sure you `?flush=1` when you reload your website.
