While you’ve seen posts about Information Card Relying Party code for lots of programming languages and environments here (ASP.Net, Ruby, Java, PHP, C) one language I haven’t posted about before is Python. To make up for that, here’s information about two Python implementations.
Turns out that the Bandits, in their inimitable style, have been quietly churning out useful code. In this case, Duane Buss built Python relying party code to use at the Bandit Project’s Code pages (Bandit Trac) and also released it for general use. After only minimal cajoling, he also created a demo Python relying party.
Meanwhile JanRain, another group well-known for producing high-quality identity code, also built a Python relying party implementation, in their case to use at MyOpenID.com. As Brian Ellin just wrote, JanRain has released their Python code for accepting self-issued Information Cards for all to use. Have at it, Python hackers!
