Node.js / ExpressJS / PassportJS OAuth2 authentication strategy for connecting with LDS.org
This module lets you authenticate using LDS.org in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, LDS.org authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.
npm install passport-lds-connect --savenpm install lds-connect-proxy --save
ldsconnect authentication strategy authenticates users using an LDS.org

options specifying a app ID, app secret, and callback URL.
