Cierge means a votive candle in French.
Also using dotnet for things that suppose to run on server still makes me uncomfortable.
But I will try and I hope to change my opinion on projects like that.
Very cool. The magic link/email address as a ready made authentication platform feels very comfortable from a usability perspective. I’m curious if the venerable crowd here at HN has experienced any downsides to this approach. Are we (over)extending a notoriously easy to pown target in email by using this approach? Or is it just considered the same level of security as say a normal user/pass setup? I know zeit uses it for their system and that’s a gateway to applications/websites/micro services/etc. I have to say that I like using it because it’s so easy but I’m not sure what the implications could be in aggregate.
Edit: changed a word for clarity.
> Cierge uses magic links/codes and external logins to authenticate your users.
Could someone explain how the "magic links/codes" works ?
I always wanted to do this. Glad someone did!
Idea is fantastic, it is not quite new, but still great, however implementation is very flawed. One site is where I am loging in, other is where I am entering code, email with code arrives from third site. This is just bad to do like this.
What I would suggest, rewrite and organize everything and came back. Otherwise solid idea.
