compound-passport

PassportJS integrated with CompoundJS

PassportJS auth library integrated into CompoundJS. This package allows authentication without any extra coding - just configure and use.

Step 1: Install dependencies

Add compound-passport, passport, and any providers used to your package.json and run npm install. Remember to add the used Passport Strategies to your package.json, e.g. passport-facebook, passport-github, etc. -- see PassportJS providers.

Step 2: Configure

Put the following configuration in config/passport.yml.

development:
  baseURL: 'http://localhost:3000/'
  local: true
  google: true
  github:
    clientID: "a8578b8dc47834908338"
    secret: "d8107d7cd75fc8ee1f12cf1f38b3aa065c3ec2ac"
  linkedin:
    apiKey: "3s708f1uys4x"
    secret: "p3iBqlybJ5WNTINv"
production:
  baseURL: 'http://node-js.ru/'
  github:
    clientID: "...."
    secret: "...."

To separate configuration from code simply use "process.env" directly in the configuration file:

development:
  baseURL: 'http://localhost:3000/'
  local: true
  google: true
  github:
    clientId: "process.env.GITHUB_API_KEY"
    secret: "process.env.GITHUB_API_SECRET"
  linkedin:
    apiKey: "process.env.LINKEDIN_API_KEY"
    secret: "process.env.LINKEDIN_API_SECRET"
production:
  baseURL: 'http://node-js.ru/'
  github:
    clientID: "...."
    secret: "...."

The module will then automatically read environment variables and use those.

Step 3: Add module

Add module to config/autoload.js:

module.exports = function() {
    return [require('compound-passport')];
};

All authentication routes starts with /auth/PROVIDERNAME Just visit /auth/google to sign in with google:

<% link_to('Sign in with google', '/auth/google') %>
<% link_to('Sign in with linkedin', '/auth/linkedin') %>
<% link_to('Sign in with github', '/auth/github') %>

Callback urls:

  • GitHub: /auth/github/callback
  • LinkedIn: /auth/linkedin/callback

Example before filter (describe in your application controller):

before(function requireManager() {
    if (!session.passport.user) {
        req.session.redirect = req.path;
        redirect('/auth/linkedin');
    } else {
        User.find(session.passport.user, function (erruser) {
            if (user && user.email === 'my.email@somehost.tld') {
                req.user = user;
                next();
            } else {
                flash('error', 'You have no permission to access this area');
                redirect('/');
            }
        });
    }
});
