Passport strategy for authenticating with the Playlyfe Platform

This module lets you authenticate using Playlyfe in your Node.js applications.

For accesing the complete Playlyfe API it is recommended you use this module with the Playlyfe NodeJS SDK


npm install passport-playlyfe


Configure Strategy

passport = require('passport');
PlaylyfeOAuth2Strategy = require('passport-playlyfe');
passport.use( new PlaylyfeOAuth2Strategy({
  clientID: 'YOUR_CLIENT_ID',
  clientSecret: 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET',
}, function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
   // Custom application code
   done(null, profile);

The redirect URI must match exactly with any of the registered redirect endpoints or the oauth flow will fail.

Authenticate Requests

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

For example in an express application with connect style middleware.

app.get('/auth/playlyfe', passport.authenticate('playlyfe'), function(req, res) {
   //Application code.
