Twitter token authentication strategy for Passport
This module lets you authenticate using Twitter in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Twitter authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.
$ npm install passport-twitter-token
The Twitter authentication strategy authenticates users using a Twitter account and OAuth tokens.
The strategy requires a
verify callback, which receives the access token and corresponding secret as arguments, as well as
profile which contains the authenticated user's Twitter profile.
verify callback must call
done providing a user to complete authentication.
In order to identify your application to Twitter, specify the consumer key, consumer secret, and callback URL within
The consumer key and secret are obtained by creating an application at Twitter's developer site.
var TwitterTokenStrategy = require'passport-twitter-token';passportuseconsumerKey: TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEYconsumerSecret: TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRETUserfindOrCreate twitterId: profileidreturn doneerror user;;;
passport.authenticate(), specifying the
'twitter-token' strategy, to authenticate requests.
For example, as route middleware in an Express application:
apppost'/auth/twitter/token'passportauthenticate'twitter-token'// do something with req.userressendrequser ? 200 : 401;;
Or as action in Sails framework:
// api/controllers/AuthController.jsmoduleexports =passportauthenticate'twitter-token'// do your stuff with userreq res;;
Execute a request (GET or POST) to created route with the following data:
To remove the need to embed the consumer secret in your client application, you can setup a route to perform step 1 on the server-side.
var request = require'request';apppost'/auth/twitter/reverse'var self = this;requestposturl: ''oauth:consumer_key: appset'twitter client key'consumer_secret: appset'twitter client secret'form: x_auth_mode: 'reverse_auth'if errreturn ressend500 message: emessage ;if bodyindexOf'OAuth' !== 0return ressend500 message: 'Malformed response from Twitter' ;ressend x_reverse_auth_parameters: body ;;;
