Passport.js integration for FlatIron web framework.

This package allows Flatiron.js applications to easily use the Passport.js authentication framework.

There are only two things that are different between using this API and using the regular Passport API.

1.) Instead of calling...

var express = require('express');
var passport = require('passport');
var app = express();
// ... BOILERPLATE SETUP CODE GOES HERE ...
app.use(passport.initialize());
app.use(passport.session());

You simply need to call...

var flatiron =      require('flatiron');
var fipassport =    require('flatiron-passport');
var app =           flatiron.app;
// ... BOILERPLATE SETUP CODE GOES HERE ...
app.use(fipassport);

2.) Now anywhere you would use the variable passport, you replace that with fipassport in your app, like so...

passport.use(new LocalStrategy(function(username, password, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

passport.serializeUser(function(user, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

passport.deserializeUser(function(id, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

passport.authenticate(.....)

You simply call this instead...

fipassport.use(new LocalStrategy(function(username, password, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

fipassport.serializeUser(function(user, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

fipassport.deserializeUser(function(id, done) {
  ...
  ...
});

fipassport.authenticate(.....)

Please refer to the included example to get a better idea....

Install

npm install flatiron-passport

Example: From the example folder...

var fs =            require('fs')
var flatiron =      require('flatiron');
var LocalStrategy = require('passport-local').Strategy
var fipassport =    require('flatiron-passport');
var app =           flatiron.app;

// You would not usually have these lines...
// This is just to store the username in memory.
var global_user = '';
var global_pass = '';

// Use the passport strategy.
fipassport.use(new LocalStrategy(function(username, password, done) {

  // You would not normally have these lines...
  // This is just to store it in memory for use later.
  global_user = username;
  global_pass = password;

  // Use this as you normally would in Passport.js.
  // But for now just
  // hard-code the user object.
  done(null, {
    id: 1234,
    username: username,
    password: password
  });
}));

// Serialize based on the user ID.
fipassport.serializeUser(function(user, done) {

  // @todo: Save your user to the database using the ID as a key.
  done(null, user.id);
});

// Load the user and return it to passport.
fipassport.deserializeUser(function(id, done) {

  // @todo:  Load your user here based off of the ID, and call done with
  // that user object.
  done(null, {
    id:id,
    username:global_user,
    password:global_pass
  });
});

// Use http and flatiron-passport.
app.use(flatiron.plugins.http);
app.use(fipassport);

// Get the front page.
app.router.get('/', function() {
  if (this.req.isAuthenticated()) {
    this.res.end('Hello ' + this.req.user.username);
  }
  else {
    fs.readFile('index.html', (function(self) {
      return function(err, data) {
        if(err) {
          self.res.writeHead(404);
          self.res.end();
          return;
        }
        self.res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/html'});
        self.res.end(data);
      };
    })(this));
  }
});

/**
 * Here the API to fipassport.authenticate is the exact same as it would
 * be fore passport.authenticate.  It is just a simple wrapper around that
 * function.
 */
app.router.post('/login', fipassport.authenticate('local', {
  successRedirect: '/',
  failureRedirect: '/login'
}));

// Start our server at port 3000.
app.start(3000, function(){
  console.log('HTTP Server started on port 3000');
});
