The user is authenticated to the Coggle API using OAuth. The passport-coggle-oauth2 module is used to authorize users, and retrieve an access token that can be sent along with requests to prove that the application is allowed create Coggles for the logged-in user.
Try It Here!
First install node.js, then:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Coggle/coggle-opml-importer.gitcd coggle-opml-importernpm install
To use the Coggle API you need a Client ID, and a Client Secret – which Coggle uses to identify requests to the applications that made them.
A new Client ID and Client Secret can be created at
http://coggle.it/developer. The redirect URL
should be the domain (and optionally port) where you will host the application
localhost:5000 for testing) followed by
/auth/coggle/callback, which is the Coggle oauth authentication callback
route of the app.
This ID and secret pair needs to be provided as environment variables when you run the app. If they are missing the app will refuse to start.
