      We are using OAuth2 to authenticate our users. We don't have any "manual" users. Technically we only got the admin user which we never use (it's bad to share an account). Our first gess was to use the alternateloginurl configuration. Not a bad idea, but we realised that the only thing we want was to hide the login form.

      So we decided to add a new configuration showloginform (with a default to "yes") and add a mustache tag to hide/show the login form. With the default to "yes" there is not breaking anything and it's offer a simple way to just use the OAuth2 authentication. If necessary, it can be check and the login form will show again.

      You can see an example of what it can look like after.
