passport-offline is an authentication strategy for PassportJS that I developed for a project that I was working on that required Twitter authentication. Whilst Twitter auth is useful, it made life very difficult when developing the app whilst offline, and so passport-offline was born.


There's only one example, as the provider is really simple. Whatever you pass into the first parameter as an object, you'll get back as the user's profile object. It's as simple as that.

passport.use(new OfflineStrategy({
    "profile": {
      id: 1234,
      username: 'mheap' 
  function(user, done) {
    User.findOrCreate(profile, function (err, user) {
      done(err, user);
