Ldap integration

Is there a way to configure ldap authentication?

I am working on improving diaspora support in syncloud.org (apps for single board computers) and we would like diaspora to reuse device's ldap account info. Other apps like nextcloud already can do this.

Thank you

Here's a previous discussion about LDAP implementation, with some reasons why it has not yet been made part of the core code base: https://www.loomio.org/d/AF8Xb0c6/ldap-authentication-way-past-due

Hope that's useful! It's certainly possible for someone to create the code to do this, but it is unlikely to become part of diaspora*'s core code unless a long-term contributor can guarantee to maintain the code and provide support.
