Installation & Setup

  1. Install Node.js & MongoDB if you haven't already.

  2. Clone this repository and install its dependencies.

     > git clone git://github.com/braitsch/node-login.git node-login
     > cd node-login
     > npm install
    
  3. In a separate shell start MongoDB.

     > mongod
    
  4. From within the node-login directory start the server.

     > node app
    
  5. Open a browser window and navigate to: http://localhost:3000

Password Retrieval

To enable the password retrieval feature it is recommended that you create environment variables for your credentials instead of hard coding them into the email dispatcher module.

To do this on OSX you can simply add them to your .profile or .bashrc file.

export NL_EMAIL_HOST='smtp.gmail.com'
export NL_EMAIL_USER='your.email@gmail.com'
export NL_EMAIL_PASS='1234'
