    INFO: Cloned from Passport-pinterest and upgraded the apis to pinterest v3.


    Passport strategy for authenticating with Pinterest using the OAuth 2.0 API.

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


    NPM Stats

    This is a module for node.js and is installed via npm:

    npm install passport-pinterest-v3 --save


    Configure Strategy

    The Pinterest authentication strategy authenticates users using a Pinterest 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 client ID, client secret, scope, and callback URL.

    passport.use(new PinterestStrategy({
            clientID: PINTEREST_APP_ID,
            clientSecret: PINTEREST_APP_SECRET,
            callbackURL: "https://localhost:3000/auth/pinterest/callback",
            state: true
        function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
            User.findOrCreate({ pinterestId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
                return done(err, user);

    Pinterest only allows https callback urls. This blog article explains the quickest way to enable https for your Express server.

    Authenticate Requests

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

    For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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


    To set up your development environment for Passport-Pinterest:

    1. Clone this repo to your desktop,
    2. in the shell cd to the main folder,
    3. hit npm install,
    4. hit npm install gulp -g if you haven't installed gulp globally yet, and
    5. run gulp dev. (Or run node ./node_modules/.bin/gulp dev if you don't want to install gulp globally.)

    gulp dev watches all source files and if you save some changes it will lint the code and execute all tests. The test coverage report can be viewed from ./coverage/lcov-report/index.html.

    If you want to debug a test you should use gulp test-without-coverage to run all tests without obscuring the code by the test coverage instrumentation.
