Warpwire's Sakai Login Script

Warpwire allows clients to utilize a lightweight Sakai login page. This script allows users to login to Warpwire using Sakai as an authentication source. You can download the script from our GitHub page. There are two ways to implement this tool:

Option 1: Self-hosted (preferred)

Download the script from GitHub and host it yourself.

If you choose this option, contact Warpwire to receive a key and secret

If you choose this option, all user login data will remain on your servers

Option 2: Warpwire-hosted

Let Warpwire take care of it. Provide the information listed below and Warpwire will host the script and login page allowing Sakai authentication outside of Sakai.

If you choose this option, Warpwire will handle the implementation
