Discourse / OMG integration

Nice to see the SSO is working nicely (and I got to choose which account to use etc).

One thing we had on another Discourse I worked with, was a bespoke plugin that pulled in additional info from the user profile on the login service, to populate the user profile info here automagically. It could also integrate status.log into the Discourse status feature, I guess.

Certainly not a must-have, I can easily edit my profile info on Discourse directly, but a potential nice-to-have for the future roadmap.


Oh, that sounds cool. I suppose I could do that with the API as well? I’ll have to look into it.


I guess if you’re going to upgrade Discourse over time, maybe combining any bespoke integrations with the platform into a plugin mean that it stays isolated and separately maintained is a nice approach.
