Using third party Auth to meld rails and wordpress- any experiences?

Rob Jonson
Hi Folks,

I'm considering an app design where we use Wordpress for the public pages, and Woo Commerce to handle memberships/subscriptions.
(Wordpress + Woo Commerce seem really well set up for a plug & play setup.)

We'd use a rails app for the custom work once the user was logged in.

I'm considering using a service like Auth0 https://auth0.com/ so that wordpress can do it's thing and handle the bulk of the user management with auth offloaded to a third party.

The rails app could then piggyback on that - with a limited amount of duplication required to keep a user database on the rails side.

Is this a credible approach?

I haven't tried this before, so any feedback / experience / suggestions / etc would be very welcome.

thank you.
