OAuth2Server

Project Goals

Most OAuth-related packages provide middleware or toolkits for implementing an authorization server. This project aims to deliver a complete, standalone, ready-to-deploy authorization server that can be incorporated out-of-the-box into a distributed architecture, along with a collection of SDKs for using it within client apps and API services. This won't be right for everyone, so it's great to have options like nightworld's node-oauth2-server and jaredhanson's oauth2orize.

There are currently three major use cases we intend to support:

  1. Centralized user account management and authentication for trusted client applications
  2. Third party API access as an OAuth 2.0 provider
  3. Single sign on

Using OAuth2Server

OAuth2Server is available as an npm package.

$ npm install oauth2server --save

Only two files are required to set up your own instance locally, app.js and config.development.json. For deployment to Modulus.io, the only additional requirements are config.production.json with a valid Redis configuration and a package.json file listing OAuth2Server as a dependency.

app.js

require('oauth2server').start();

config.production.json

{
  "local-ui": "path/to/ui/build",
  "redis": {
    "url": "redis://HOST:PORT",
    "auth": "PASSWORD"
  }
}

API and configuration docs are in the wiki. We're developing fast and this may be out of sync with the code. Please post an issue if you have questions about usage.

Developing OAuth2Server

Please fork the repository if you intend to contribute. Otherwise just clone this repo.

$ git clone https://github.com/christiansmith/OAuth2Server.git

You'll need to create a configuration file for development. Config files are loaded based on the NODE_ENV setting. By default, config.development.json is loaded and the server will look for a redis instance at localhost.

To get started experimenting, there's a script for generating sample data in your configured storage target.

From the source code, run $ node sample.js.

From a project directory, run $ node node_modules/oauth2server/sample.js.

How to Participate

Help us build the right thing by coming to the Google Hangout at 10am Pacific every Thursday to brainstorm features and use cases. The hangout link is tweeted by @anvilhacks and posted to the project blog a few minutes in advance each week. We love to hear from prospective users.

To help us build the thing right:

  • Post and comment on issues. This is the best place to discuss/debate implementation details, point out bugs, flaws, and security issues.
  • Fork and request pulls for features and bug fixes. For substantial features, please submit an issue describing your proposed enhancements first, so we can avoid duplicating efforts.
  • Pair program. These sessions are always fun and productive. Send me an email to arrange a time (smith at anvil dot io).
  • Stay up to date by watching this repository, reading the project blog and checking the issues.
  • Promote the project and help us find more early users by blogging, tweeting, +1-ing, starring, gossiping and anything else you think might help.

Sponsorship & Consulting

Accelerate development of features you need by sponsoring the project, or get help integrating OAuth2Server into your architecture. Contact Christian Smith for more information (smith at anvil dot io).
