    Stormpath.js

    A browser-ready javascript library for use with Stormpath features. Use this library if you are building your own ID Site from scratch. Additional features may be added in the future.

    Usage

    In order to use Stormpath.js, your application must be part of a Service- Provider initiated flow. The client assumes this is true and searches the browser's URL for the secure token which is needed to initialize the client.

    For more information please read Using Stormpath's ID Site to Host your User Management UI

    Installation

    You may clone this repo and use the stormpath.min.js or stormpath.js files from the dist/ folder by including them in your application with a script tag:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="stormpath.min.js"></script>

    This library is also available as a bower package:

    bower install stormpath.js

    You may also install this module via NPM and require it in your Browserify application:

    npm install stormpath.js

    Initialization

    To initialize a Stormpath Client which will be used for all API communication, simply create a new instance and pass a callback function:

    $(document).ready(function(){
      var client = new Stormpath.Client(function readyCallback(err,idSiteModel){
        if(err){
          // The secure token is missing or not valid, show err.message to the user
        }else{
          // The client is ready, and you can now use it's methods
          // to build your ID site, per the idSiteModel
        }
      });
    })

    ID Site model

    The site model has all the information that you need to build your ID Site, it tells you:

    • passwordPolicy, an object, which provides the password strength policies for the account store which new accounts will be created in. If null, new accounts are not permitted for the target account store or the store is a social provider store.

    • providers, which provides your social provider configuration as an array of objects, ordered by account store prioritization.

    • logoUrl, the URL to the logo image

    All of these options can be configured in your Stormpath Admin Console.

    Example site model:

    {
      "href": "https://api.stormpath.com/v1/applications/Uu87kmhxwEcnjmhxwFuzwF/idSiteModel",
      "providers": [
        {
          "providerId": "facebook",
          "clientId": "718312098209831"
        },
        {
          "providerId": "google",
          "clientId": "489886489864-bm1m1kd1dbdo1kd1h4phhr6aohhr6933.apps.googleusercontent.com"
        },
      ],
      "passwordPolicy": {
        "minLength": 8,
        "maxLength": 20,
        "requireLowerCase": true,
        "requireUpperCase": true,
        "requireNumeric": true,
        "requireDiacritical": false,
        "requireSymbol": false
      },
      "logoUrl": "http://mycdn.fastinternet.com/images/logo.png"
    }

    Login a user (username and password)

    To login an existing user, collect their username/email and password, then make a call to login and provide a callback:

    client.login(
      {
        login: usernameOrEmail,
        password: submittedPassword,
        accountStore: { // optional
          href: 'optional account store href for login attempt'
        }
      },
      function loginCallback(err,result){
        if(err){
          // credentials are invalid, show err.message to the user
        }else{
          // login was successful, send the user to the serviceProviderCallbackUrl
          window.location.replace(result.serviceProviderCallbackUrl);
        }
      }
    );

    Social Login (Google or Facebook)

    Use the Facebook or Google Javascript Library to prompt the user for login, then pass the token they provide to the login method using the providerData object:

    client.login(
      {
        providerData: {
          providerId: 'facebook',
          accessToken: 'token-from-facebook-login'
        }
      },
      function loginCallback(err,result){
        if(err){
          // an error with the provider, show err.message to the user
        }else{
          // login was successful, send the user to the serviceProviderCallbackUrl
          window.location.replace(result.serviceProviderCallbackUrl);
        }
      }
    );

    Register a new user (username & password)

    If the target account store will allow new accounts, you can collect the necessary information from the user and supply it to the register method:

    client.register(
      {
        surname: "Smith",
        givenName: "Joe",
        email: 'me@gmail.com',
        password: 'hackerztheplanet'
      },
      function registerCallback(err,result){
        if(result.serviceProviderCallbackUrl){
          // You will be given the serviceProviderCallbackUrl if the email verification workflow is
          // NOT enabled for this account store, in which case the user can now
          // continue to the serviceProviderCallbackUrl
          window.location.replace(result.serviceProviderCallbackUrl);
        }else{
          // tell the user to check their email for a verification link
          alert('Please check your email for a verification link.');
        }
      }
    )

    Verify a new account

    If your account store requires email verification for new accounts we will send the user an email with a verification link. When they click on this link they will arrive at your application with a special token in the URL. You should then call verifyEmailToken to verify the token with Stormpath:

    client.verifyEmailToken(function(err){
      if(err){
        // token is invalid, expired, or already used.
        // show err.message to user
      }else{
        // token is valid, now prompt the user to login
      }
    })

    Send a password reset email

    Collect the user's username or email, then call sendPasswordResetEmail:

    var options = {
      email: 'email or username',
      accountStore: { // optional
        href: 'optional account store href for login attempt'
      }
    }
    client.sendPasswordResetEmail(options,function(err){
      if(err){
        // email is invalid, show err.message to user
      }else{
        // tell user to check their email for a link
      }
    })

    Verify a password reset token

    If the user has clicked on the password reset link that we sent them, they will arrive ay your application with a special token in the URL. You should then call verifyPasswordResetToken to verify the token with Stormpath:

    client.verifyPasswordToken(function(err,pwTokenVerification){
      if(err){
        // token is invalid, expired, or already used.
        // show err.message to user
      }else{
        // prompt the user for a new password, then
        // call setAccountPassword
      }
    })

    Set a new password

    After verifying the password reset token and receiving a pwTokenVerification, collect a new password from the user and pass it with the verification to setAccountPassword.

    NOTE: Only one call per session is allowed for this method. You must use client-side verification to proactively warn the user that their password will not match the password policy rules that are defined in the idSiteModel (see above).

     
    client.setAccountPassword(pwTokenVerification,newPassword,function(err,result){
      if(err){
        // password strength rules were not met
      }else{
        // success, now prompt the user to login
      }
    });
