Passport-bitly

Passport strategy for authenticating with bitly using the OAuth 2.0 API.

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

Build Status

Install

$ npm install passport-bitly

Usage

Configure Strategy

The bitly authentication strategy authenticates users using a bitly account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a client ID, client secret, and callback URL.

passport.use(new BitlyStrategy({
    clientID: BITLY_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: BITLY_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/bitly/callback"
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ bitlyId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

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