Authenticate Matrix homeserver logins against a WordPress database via REST

13th July 2020

I’ve open sourced something – the first thing in a while. Matrix WP REST Auth (GitLab) is a very basic way of responding to authentication requests from a Matrix homeserver which has been configured with the Matrix Synapse REST Password Provider. I’m using it to authenticate users against a WordPress database, so every user gets a Matrix account.

If there’s much interest or activity around this, I’m happy to take it further or accept pull requests. As it is, I hope it will simply save someone a few hours of reading and hacking around.
