Build Status hex.pm hex.pm downloads

Use Google, Github, Twitter, Facebook, Basecamp, VK or add your own strategy for authorization to your Coherence Phoenix app.

Features

  • Collects required login field if missing verified email from provider
  • Multiple providers can be used for accounts
    • When removing auth: Validates user has password or another provider authentication
  • Github, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Basecamp and VK strategies included
  • Updates Coherence templates automatically
  • You can add your custom strategy with ease

Installation

Note: This version requires Coherence v0.5.2 and above. If you wish to use v0.5.0, please use the v0.3.x release(s). If you get dependency resolution failure with ecto when you install Coherence or coherence_assent, just run mix deps.unlock ecto.

Add CoherenceAssent to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
  [
    # ...
    {:coherence_assent, "~> 0.4"}
    # ...
  ]
end

Run mix deps.get to install it.

Set up Coherence

You need to make sure the Coherence views and routes has been set up first. If this hasn't been done, follow the next steps.

Add all the Coherence files to your project:

mix coh.install --full --confirmable --invitable

Update routes:

# lib/my_project_web/router.ex

defmodule MyProjectWeb.Router do
  use MyProjectWeb, :router
  use Coherence.Router                    # Add this

  pipeline :browser do
    plug :accepts, ["html"]
    plug :fetch_session
    plug :fetch_flash
    plug :protect_from_forgery
    plug :put_secure_browser_headers
    plug Coherence.Authentication.Session # Add this
  end

  # Add this block
  pipeline :protected do
    plug :accepts, ["html"]
    plug :fetch_session
    plug :fetch_flash
    plug :protect_from_forgery
    plug :put_secure_browser_headers
    plug Coherence.Authentication.Session, protected: true
  end

  # ...

  # Add this block
  scope "/" do
    pipe_through :browser
    coherence_routes()
  end

  # Add this block
  scope "/" do
    pipe_through :protected
    coherence_routes :protected
  end

  # ...
end

Getting started

Run to update all Coherence files:

mix coherence_assent.install

The install script will attempt to update the following files that Coherence have installed:

LIB_PATH/coherence/user.ex
WEB_PATH/templates/coherence/registration/edit.html.eex
WEB_PATH/templates/coherence/registration/new.html.eex
WEB_PATH/templates/coherence/session/new.html.eex
WEB_PATH/views/coherence/coherence_view_helpers.ex
WEB_PATH/coherence_messages.ex

If the files cannot be updated, install instructions will be printed instead. It's important that you update all files according to these instructions.

Set up routes:

# lib/my_project_web/router.ex

defmodule MyAppWeb.Router do
  use MyAppWeb, :router
  use Coherence.Router
  use CoherenceAssent.Router  # Add this

  # ...

  scope "/" do
    pipe_through [:browser]
    coherence_routes()
    coherence_assent_routes() # Add this
  end

  # ...
end

The following routes will now be available in your app:

coherence_assent_auth_path  GET             /auth/:provider              CoherenceAssent.AuthController :index
coherence_assent_auth_path  GET             /auth/:provider/callback     CoherenceAssent.AuthController :callback
coherence_assent_auth_path  DELETE          /auth/:provider              CoherenceAssent.AuthController :delete
coherence_assent_registration_path  GET     /auth/:provider/new          CoherenceAssent.RegistrationController :add_login_field
coherence_assent_registration_path  POST    /auth/:provider/create       CoherenceAssent.RegistrationController :create

Remember to run the new migrations: mix ecto.setup (or mix ecto.migrate)

Setting up a provider

Strategies for Twitter, Facebook, Google, Github and Basecamp are included. We'll go through how to set up the Github strategy.

First, register a new app on Github and add http://localhost:4000/auth/github/callback as callback URL. Then add the following to config/config.exs and add the client id and client secret:

config :coherence_assent, :providers,
       [
         github: [
           client_id: "REPLACE_WITH_CLIENT_ID",
           client_secret: "REPLACE_WITH_CLIENT_SECRET",
           strategy: CoherenceAssent.Strategy.Github
        ]
      ]

Now start (or restart) your Phoenix app, and visit http://localhost:4000/registrations/new. You'll see a "Sign in with Github" link.

Custom provider

You can add your own strategy. Here's an example of an OAuth 2.0 implementation:

defmodule TestProvider do
  alias CoherenceAssent.Strategy.Helpers
  alias CoherenceAssent.Strategy.OAuth2, as: OAuth2Helper

  def authorize_url(conn, config) do
    OAuth2Helper.authorize_url(conn, set_config(config))
  end

  def callback(conn, config, params) do
    config = set_config(config)

    conn
    |> OAuth2Helper.callback(config, params)
    |> normalize()
  end

  defp set_config(config) do
    [
      site: "http://localhost:4000/",
      authorize_url: "http://localhost:4000/oauth/authorize",
      token_url: "http://localhost:4000/oauth/access_token",
      user_url: "/user",
      authorization_params: [scope: "email profile"]
    ]
    |> Keyword.merge(config)
    |> Keyword.put(:strategy, OAuth2.Strategy.AuthCode)
  end

  defp normalize({:ok, %{conn: conn, client: client, user: user}}) do
    user = %{"uid"        => user["sub"],
             "name"       => user["name"],
             "email"      => user["email"]}
           |> Helpers.prune

    {:ok, %{conn: conn, client: client, user: user}}
  end
  defp normalize({:error, error}), do: {:error, error}
end

Security concerns

All sessions created through CoherenceAssent provider authentication are temporary, and doesn't use the rememberable configuration in Coherence. However, it's a good idea to do some housekeeping in your app and making sure that you have the level of security as warranted by the scope of your app. This may include requiring users to reauthenticate before viewing or editing their user details.
