Introducing UserBaseFiled on Mar 15, 2006 by Anthony DiSante
This week we release our website login system, dubbed "UserBase." This system has been in use on various Encodable websites for about 4 years, and it’s now neatly packaged up for use on your own website.
UserBase allows you to create unlimited member and administrator accounts on your website, and then your other web applications can integrate with it to determine whether a given user should have access to certain resources on your site. For example, FileChucker integrates with UserBase so that each user can have their own private upload directory.
Speaking of FileChucker, it was one of the driving forces behind the release of UserBase. We had planned on releasing it eventually, but more and more FileChucker users wanted a full-featured login system for their uploads, so we made it a priority to release UserBase for public consumption.
