About

Stateless authentication microservice for "login-with" functionality, supporting:

  • Twitter
  • GitHub
  • Reddit
  • Facebook
  • Google
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • Mixer
  • ... more to come (PRs welcome)

You can deploy with now or Docker (for mandatory and optional env variables see below).

$ now lipp/login-with
$ docker run lipp/login-with

This microservice must run in a subdomain of yours, e.g. login.yourdomain.com.

<a href='https://login.yourdomain.com/twitter?success=ON_SUCCESS_URL&failure=ON_FAILURE_URL'>
  Login with Twitter
</a>

On successful login two cookies will be created:

  • jwt - A "JSON Web Token" (JWT) containing profile information and the respective access tokens (Twitter/etc). http-only!
  • profile - A JSON string which containing non-sensitive information (accessible from browser JS):
    • username - string / mandatory, the account specific user alias (e.g. Twitter name)  - photo - string / optional, the account specific user image link
    • name - string / optional, the "real" name

The cookies will be available for your toplevel domain and all subdomains. In addition, the cookie's secure flag is set, which means that your other websites/webservices must run over https.

Optional environment variables

  • LW_COOKIE_MAXAGE - The max age of the store cookie, defaults to 10 days
  • LW_PROFILE_COOKIENAME - The profile's cookie name, defaults to profile
  • LW_JWT_COOKIENAME - The JSON Web Token's (JWT) cookie name, defaults to jwt
