Passport adapter for SheKnows Connect

Passport-SheKnows

Passport strategy for authenticating with SheKnows Connect using the OAuth 2.0 API.

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

$ npm install passport-sheknows

The SheKnows authentication strategy authenticates users using a SheKnows 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 SheKnowsStrategy({
    clientID: SHEKNOWS_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: SHEKNOWS_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/sheknows/callback"
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ SheKnowsId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

app.get('/auth/sheknows/callback',
  passport.authenticate('sheknows', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.
    res.redirect('/');
  });
$ npm install --dev
$ make test
