An express middleware that handles OAuth* and Local logins.



$ npm install goauth


you create an authentication app - which can then be mounted onto a connect / express middleware based web server.

var express = require('express');
var goauth = require('goauth');

var app = express();

// create the auth server and configure the paths for login, register and connect actions
// these paths will be relative to where you mount the auth server onto the web server
// in our example we will use the defaults:
//        /auth/login
//        /auth/register
//        /auth/connect
// we also give provider keys for OAuth logins
// these are mounted at the 'connect' path so:
//        /auth/connect/facebook
// for example

var auth = goauth({
        // post {username:'...',password:'...'}
        // post {username:'...',password:'...',fullname:'...',email:'...'}
        // get


// the user is logging in
//    data:
//        username
//        password

auth.on('login', function(data, callback){


// the user is registering a new account

auth.on('register', function(data, callback){


// mount the auth server onto the web server
app.use('/auth', auth);

// the rest of our website is here
app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/www'));

app.listen(80, function(){
