Constant Contact authentication strategy for Passport.


Passport strategy for authenticating with Constant Contact using the OAuth 2.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using Constant Contact in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Constant Contact authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

The Constant Contact authentication strategy authenticates users using a Constant Contact account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a app ID, app secret, and callback URL.

passport.use(new ConstantContactStrategy({
    callbackURL: "http://localhost:3000/auth/constantcontact/callback"
  }, function (accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ constantContactUsername: profile.user_name }, function(err, user) {
      return done(err, user);

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'constantcontact' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/constantcontact', passport.authenticate('constantcontact'));

  passport.authenticate('constantcontact', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successul authentication, redirect home.
