I’m responsible for one implementation (pyoidc) that is primary a OpenID connect implementation.
But since OpenID Connect is a profile of OAuth2 it will work in an OAuth2 context too.

This implementation is special in that it’s the de facto reference implementation for OpenID Connect.
It’s that, due to the fact that I’ve built the OpenID Connect test suit which most today available
OpenID Provider implementations have verified themselves against.
