I really want to use this framework, and I applaud nodejitsu for your contributions. Everything is pretty much what I am looking for, with one exception. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add user authentication using OAuth or similar. Passport does this beautifully within Express.js framework, but the closest thing I have seen out there is a hacked up version of Passport for Flatiron (https://gist.github.com/2132062). I would prefer to use a community supported solution, but after a day of searching, I have come up with nothing...

Question... Is there anything out there that I can use for oauth authentication for flatiron?

Thanks in advance for your response,



I'm not aware of a flatiron solution, though I agree that there should be.

That gist looks like a good start. What I would do is rewrite it to work as a broadway plugin. In fact, someone should rewrite it as a broadway plugin.

+1 to adding a generic auth plugin.

I know we have something we use internally, but it's not release ready.

Integration with passport or everyauth would be a good idea.

Ok, so here is what I got so far... I believe I got it working, and did so with the following package.


Please read the README.md on how to use it... Let me know if this works for you guys. It may need a lot of testing, but so far, for LocalStrategy it works for me.
