Renren authentication strategy for Passport. Supports Weibo API 2.0


copied and revised from passport-weibo

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

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

$ npm install passport-weibo

The Weibo authentication strategy authenticates users using a Weibo 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 WeiboStrategy({
    clientID: WEIBO_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: WEIBO_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: ""
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ weiboId: }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:


  passport.authenticate('weibo', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.

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

$ npm install --dev
$ make test
