(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) General LDAP FAQ : (Category) LDAP Applications : (Category) HTTP-to-LDAP gateways : (Answer) web2ldap
web2ldap is (https://www.web2ldap.de/) a full-featured web-based LDAPv3 client written in Python. It is designed to run either as with stand-alone demon based on a built-in web server or under the control of another web server with FastCGI support (e.g. Apache with mod_fastcgi). It has support for various LDAPv3 bind methods and a powerful built-in schema browser. HTML templates are supported for displaying and editing entries, and LDIF templates can be used for quickly adding new entries. A built-in X.509 parser displays a detailed view of certificates and CRLs with active links. The functionality can be extended by plugin classes registered per LDAP syntax and/or attribute types.

The presentation web2ldap and OpenLDAP special features on OpenLDAP Developers' Day 2006 shows how LDIF and HTML templates can be used for maintaining cn=config.

Presentation at LDAPcon 2013:
