social-login

Passportjs too complicated to integrate? Social-Login wraps Passportjs and let you setup one-click logins to 13 social-sites out of the box, without headache.

Social-Login

Social-login is a utility built on top of PassportJS that makes it a lot faster to setup various social logins on your site, without having to deal with PassportJS' complicated and non-standardized API.

Social-login also pre-parse the data to return only the part you care about. It will also return the name of the unique property in the data ('id', 'ID', 'name', ...), so that you can identify the user's account easily.

You can literally setup a social login for 13 social sites in less than 10 minutes, without headache.

You can install the following social logins out of the box:

  • facebook
  • twitter
  • instagram
  • linkedin
  • github
  • google
  • amazon
  • dropbox
  • foursquare
  • imgur
  • meetup
  • wordpress
  • tumblr

npm install social-login

Do you need to receive the raw data returned by the Oauth login rather than the filtered one?

Simply pass returnRaw: true in the setup parameters:

var socialLogin         = new socialLoginClass({
    returnRaw:  true,   // Set this to true (default: false)
    app:        app, 
    url:        'http://127.0.0.1:5000',
    onAuth:     function(req, type, uniqueProperty, accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
        // 'profile' now contains the raw unfiltered data from the Oauth login.
    }
});
