User-attributes

Blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ibid/+spec/user-attributes

Ibid currently implements attributes attached to a user account. These attributes aren't currently used anywhere however. We also need some kind of private information for users (for example, a password for an email checking plugin), and this could be implemented as private attributes.

Possible uses for attributes

  • Usernames on sites such as last.fm and Twitter so that those plugins can find your username based on nick
  • Preferences for plugins such as Summon and Memo

Possible uses for private attributes

  • Passwords for a mail checking plugin

API Changes needed

  • Functions to look up and set these attributes
  • A function to look up an account based on a username / identity
