GitHub OAuth Module for NodeJS

This module gives you the ability to authenticate a user using the GitHub API.

The implementation is not complete. You can't provide scopes and it doesn't handle state right now.

Note: All Examples here are written in CoffeeScript.

Install

npm install github_auth

Initialize


GitHub = require 'github_auth'
github = new GitHub app_id, app_secret

This is the link your users will click to go to github.com and authorize your app.

link = github.link()

Get the Token from GitHub

The GitHub API calls back your application with a code in the query. You need to just take the code parameter from the query and pass it to the login function.

The API

github.login(code, callback)

callback provides token as the parameter.

Express Example


app.get '/login', (req, res, next) ->
    if req.query && req.query.code
        github.login req.query.code, (token) ->
            console.log token
            # Now you have the token.
            # Save it in your database.
    else next()
