A program to authenticate with the directory service used by Mac OS X
Version: 1.0Directory Services Wrapper is a program to authenticate with the directory service used by Mac OS X.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Mac OS X uses the Directory Service for user authentication and more. The service can be configured to communicate with an Active Directory installation or a LDAP installation to get user information.
There is also a framework to get access to the functionality of this service. So far so good. Unfortunately this framework is a very very very low level framework and for whatever reason it has some very strange naming conventions for functions and data structures.
Searchlight authenticates a user through a Ruby on Rails application to give the user the correct Spotlight results. So I needed the help of Directory Services which cost me a lot of time.
That's one of the problems when you have to deal with a not so hype framework. It does not have as much documentation, sample code, tutorials like those cool image, animation and other stuff.
