An abstract class implementing Passport's strategy API.

$ npm install passport-strategy

This module exports an abstract Strategy class that is intended to be subclassed when implementing concrete authentication strategies. Once implemented, such strategies can be used by applications that utilize Passport middleware for authentication.

Create a new CustomStrategy constructor which inherits from Strategy:

var util = require('util')
  , Strategy = require('passport-strategy');
 
function CustomStrategy(...) {
  Strategy.call(this);
}
 
util.inherits(CustomStrategy, Strategy);

Implement autheticate(), performing the necessary operations required by the authentication scheme or protocol being implemented.

CustomStrategy.prototype.authenticate = function(reqoptions) {
  // TODO: authenticate request 
}
$ npm install
$ npm test
