Passport-Ohloh

Passport strategy for authenticating with Ohloh using the OAuth 1.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using Ohloh in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Ohloh authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

Install

$ npm install passport-ohloh

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Ohloh authentication strategy authenticates users using a Ohloh account and OAuth tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a consumer key, consumer secret, and callback URL.

passport.use(new OhlohStrategy({
    consumerKey: OHLOH_API_KEY,
    consumerSecret: OHLOH_CONSUMER_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/ohloh/callback"
  },
  function(token, tokenSecret, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ ohlohId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'ohloh' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/ohloh',
  passport.authenticate('ohloh'));

app.get('/auth/ohloh/callback', 
  passport.authenticate('ohloh', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.
    res.redirect('/');
  });

For a complete, working example, refer to the login example.
