I've tried debug logging with winston but it only shows this right now which i don't believe is related to this 404 problem:

info: error: authentication - Method: create: Missing credentials
debug: strategy=local
debug: hook.params , provider=socketio, , ,
error: BadRequest: Missing credentials
at Error.BadRequest (C:\Users\Travis\Documents\Code\Projects\vuthers3\node_modules\feathers-errors\lib\index.js:93:17)
at C:\Users\Travis\Documents\Code\Projects\vuthers3\node_modules\feathers-authentication\lib\hooks\authenticate.js:102:31
at process._tickDomainCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:135:7)
info: (404) Route: /auth/google - Page not found

Really appreciate any advice. Thank you.

After removing feathers notFound() and handler() middlewares from src/middleware/index.js, and using one of my own, I was able to discover that this was an error with my google oauth2 configuration which was being hidden by feathers. I was able to get it working after adding localhost:3030/auth/google/callback to the list of allowed redirect URIs.

  // app.use(notFound())
  // app.use(logger(app))
  // app.use(handler())
  function errorHandler(err, req, res, next) {
    res.render('error', { error: err })

Somehow this allowed me to see the error message returned by google. Still not sure why other than I prevented the notFound page from showing up.
