The goal of sealr is to provide multiple authentication and authorization strategies for plumber by using filters. In doing so, we hope to make best practices in authentication easy to implement for the R community. The package is inspired by the amazing passport.js library for Node.js. The sealr website can be found at https://jandix.github.io/sealr/.
sealr, we are not experts in security. Please make sure you
understand the risks and possible attack vectors when using
especially in production environments.
Currently, the package is under development. Please feel free to
contribute to the package. You can install and use the package using
Documentation and Examples
We provide more information and some simple sample implementations for different strategies and use cases on the project website: https://jandix.github.io/sealr/ (click on the headers in the navigation bar on the left to unfold the subsites / example sites). The site is a work in progress and we add content continuously.
We are still at the very beginning of the package and we welcome any support and contribution. Below you find a list with possible authentication strategies that you could implement. The list is not complete and can be expanded with your suggestions.
- Bearer Token
- Twitter OAuth
- Facebook OAuth
- Google OAuth
You can use curl for testing purposes. Unfortunately, curl quickly gets quite complicated if you want to add a body, parameters and unique headers. Therefore, we recommend to use Postman for larger, more complicated projects.
