This may be a very noob question, but I finally decided to ask here after spending a week working on it. I know a bit of php/mysql/js coding. No experience in mobile app development - and wanted a way to link my framework7 app (and also a web based html version) with a server-side user management and authentication. Initially thought of WordPress REST, but decided against it as wanted simpler solution.
I need help in finding an open source software that I can use to do user management (login, session etc). I have a website and an app for a simple service that I provide (for simplicity lets assume it to be quiz and grading for each user).
SO basic requirements are:
User authentication through app - and related process flow.
User wise data(quiz score) saving in mysql.
CodeIgniter, userfrosting (too large - uses too many libraries) and huge(was just not able to make it work - apparently the help docs not for noobs like me) in others.
Moreover, these are ideally website solutions where the files accessed are hosted in the web server - unlike the app where files are in mobile. Since I am more of a hobby programmer and am not an expert, a good user guide / tutorial would be helpful.
Does anyone know any other solution that I can use to do user management for my app? WIll really appreciate your help as I have hit a deadend.
