    CleverStack NodeJS Authentication Module

    This CleverStack Module provides easy to use, easy to configure, reliable and scalable Authentication System that allows you to (within minutes) have authentication via Google, Facebook, Github, LinkedIn, and many more...


    • Works with both the clever-orm and the clever-odm modules.
    • Easy to use configuration prompts, grunt prompt:cleverAuthConfig.
    • Easily installed using the CleverStack CLI, clever install clever-auth.
    • Easily extend clever-auth with new Authentication Providers that are not implemented yet.
    • Use with the clever-users module - OR - with any other module that exports the UserController, UserService and UserModel resources/classes.
    • Authentication Strategies: Github, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Google - as well as local authentication out of the box.


    1. You must be using cleverstack-cli version 1.2.2 or newer.
    2. Your project must be using node-seed version 1.2.1 or newer.
    3. You must either install the clever-users module, or any other module that provides the UserController, UserService and UserModel resources/classes.


    Using CLI

    1. Run clever install clever-auth and follow the prompts
    2. Run clever serve to start your application.

    Without CLI

    1. Clone this repo (or untar it there) into your modules folder (ie modules/clever-auth)
    2. Run grunt prompt:cleverAuthConfig and fill in your configuration options.
    3. Run grunt db to rebase and seed the data.
    4. Run grunt server to start your application.
