AuthenticClient

The client component of authentic. This helps interact with an authentic-server so that you can easily signup, confirm, login, and change-password for users. It will also help send tokens to microservices that require authentication.

Example

var Authentic = require('authentic-client')

var auth = Authentic({
  server: 'https://auth.scalehaus.io'
})

var creds = {
  email: 'chet@scalehaus.io',
  password: 'notswordfish'
}

// Step 1: log in
auth.login(creds, function (err) {
  if (err) return console.error(err)

  // Step 2: make a JSON request with authentication
  var url = 'https://reporting.scalehaus.io/report'
  auth.get(url, function (err, data) {
    // show that report
    console.log(data)
  })
})

Installation

npm install --save authentic-client

API

Authentic(opts)

This is the main entry point. Accepts an options object and returns an object with helper methods.

var auth = Authentic({
  server: 'https://auth.scalehaus.io'
})

// auth is now an object with various methods:
auth.signup(opts, cb)
auth.confirm(opts, cb)
auth.login(opts, cb)
auth.changePasswordRequest(opts, cb)
auth.changePassword(opts, cb)

options

Authentic() takes an options object as its first argument, one of them is required:

  • server: the url of the authentic-server, e.g. 'http://auth.yourdomain.com'

Optional:

  • prefix: defaults to '/auth' if you set a custom prefix for your authentic-server, use that same prefix here
  • authToken: if you have an authToken from a previous login, you may pass it in for immediate use in get and post

auth.signup(opts, cb)

auth.confirm(opts, cb)

auth.login(opts, cb)

auth.changePasswordRequest(opts, cb)

auth.changePassword(opts, cb)

See authentic-server's Server API for usage

auth.get(url, opts, cb)

Will make a request using an authToken if one is available, has the same API as jsonist.get

auth.post(url, data, opts, cb)

Will make a request using an authToken if one is available, has the same API as jsonist.post
