[mod] Redirect after logout if `r` URI argument exists #109

The problem

An app cannot ask for a logout without breaking UX: users end up on SSOwat login form, whereas going back to the app could be preferable in some cases.


This PR addresses YunoHost/issues#1201.
The modification makes logout() helper test if r URI argument exists after logging out users. If so, the base64 address is decoded and nginx is tasked with the redirection.

PR Status

Ready to be reviewed.


Example: Flarum package is bundled with an SSOwat extension to support YNH users. It already puts an r argument while disconnecting YNH users and redirection has been successfully tested.

Anyone has an opinion on this ? (including @YunoHost/apps ?)

Naively it looks legit to me but I haven't digged the issue / I don't have all use cases in mind

return redirect(conf.portal_url)
-- Redirect with the `r` URI argument if it exists or redirect to portal
if args.r then

I think it should be in the "if is_logged_in() then" No ?

No, I don't think so. The function logout() already assumes that the user is logged in (as per line 884) and delete their cookies/session. Then my proposed code adds a check for the r argument to use it for redirection, and otherwise defaults to the initial redirection to portal.
