Auth0 platform authentication strategy for Passport.js

This is the auth0 authentication strategy for Passport.js.

npm install passport-auth0

Take your credentials from the settings section in the dashboard and initialize the strategy as follows:

var Auth0Strategy = require('passport-auth0'),
    passport = require('passport');
var strategy = new Auth0Strategy({
   domain:       '',
   clientID:     'your-client-id',
   clientSecret: 'your-client-secret',
   callbackURL:  '/callback'
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, extraParams, profile, done) {
    // accessToken is the token to call Auth0 API (not needed in the most cases) 
    // extraParams.id_token has the JSON Web Token 
    // profile has all the information from the user 
    return done(null, profile);
  passport.authenticate('auth0', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    if (!req.user) {
      throw new Error('user null');
  passport.authenticate('auth0', {}), function (req, res) {

This way when you go to /login you will get redirected to auth0, to a page where you can select the identity provider.

If you want to force an identity provider you can use:

  passport.authenticate('auth0', {connection: 'google-oauth2'}), function (req, res) {

If you want to get a list of connections or users from auth0, use the auth0 module.

A complete example of using this library here.
