passport-renren-new

Passport-Renren

copied and revised from passport-github

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

This module lets you authenticate using GitHub in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, GitHub authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express. ## Update Update from the passport-renren to support API2.0. ## Install

$ npm install passport-renren-new

Usage

Configure Strategy

The GitHub authentication strategy authenticates users using a GitHub 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, and callback URL.

passport.use(new GitHubStrategy({
    clientID: RENREN_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: RENREN_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/renren/callback"
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ renrenId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

app.get('/auth/renren/callback', 
  passport.authenticate('renren', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.
    res.redirect('/');
  });

For a complete, working example, refer to the login example.
