Cierge vs Guardian: What are the differences?
Cierge: Easy magic-link authentication. Cierge is an open source authentication server (OIDC) that handles user signup, login, profiles, managerment, and more. Instead of storing passwords, Cirege uses magic links/codes and external logins to authenticate your users; Guardian: Remove the OAuth dance with one request. Avoid dealing with OAuth logic in your code, and spend more time creating your product. Guardian reduces the OAuth footprint in your code to a single request. Built with modularity in mind, Guardian leverages plugins to handle OAuth flows, should you encounter a flow that Guardian doesn't handle, create a small flow plugin to do so and carry on. Guardian comes with 5 pre-made plugins that cover 99% of OAuth services.
Cierge and Guardian can be primarily classified as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
Cierge and Guardian are both open source tools. It seems that Cierge with 1.22K GitHub stars and 61 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Guardian with 628 GitHub stars and 42 GitHub forks.
