npm install passhash-auth
var PasshashAuth = require'passhash-auth'var auth = './passhashauth.txt';
Return a new object that can be used to authenticate usernames against the database given
The file should contain lines using the default output format of
passhash. For reference:
Checks if a given
username is valid. Returns a boolean.
Checks if the given
password are valid. Returns a boolean.
For this example we will assume the user name and password were obtained from a secure source such as a SSL socket. Due to the
checkHashMatch function returning a boolean, you can have it execute anything you want depending on the return value. For our example it will print to stdout either
var PasshashAuth = require'passhash-auth';var auth = __dirname + '/test_auth';var user1 = 'test';var pass1 = 'correctPassword';if authcheckHashMatchuser1 pass1console.log'match';elseconsole.log'nonmatch';
