Thank you Kevin.
Unfortunately I already have the whole account system working. I was
wondering more if there was like an authentication API for typo?
basically to integrate my current login and the Typo login together. If
this isn't the best option I would love to hear other options to getting
this done. The main goal is to not have to make users log in twice on
the one site.
