Node.js Using Passport

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

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

Installation

$ npm install passport-dailycred

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Dailycred authentication strategy authenticates users using a Dailycred 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 app ID, app secret, and callback URL.

passport.use(new DailycredStrategy({
    clientID: DAILYCRED_APP_ID,
    clientSecret: DAILYCRED_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://localhost:3000/auth/dailycred/callback"
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ dailycredId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/signup',
  passport.authenticate('dailycred'));

app.get('/auth/signin',
  passport.authenticate('dailycred', {action:'signin'})); //uses param ?action=signin

//setup a route for each provider, so you can use /auth/facebook, etc
var providers = ["facebook","google","twitter"];
var provider;
for (i in providers){
  provider = providers[i];
  app.get("/auth/"+provider,
    passport.authenticate('dailycred', {identity_provider: provider}))
}

app.get('/auth/dailycred/callback',
  passport.authenticate('dailycred', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.
    res.redirect('/');
  });
