passport-create

Passport strategy for creating new user if unauthenticated.

This module lets you create new users on first visit. By plugging into Passport, create authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

Install

$ npm install passport-create

Usage

Configure Strategy

The strategy requires a create callback, which calls done providing a user.

passport.use(new CreateStrategy(
  function(done) {
    User.create({ username: username }, function (err, user) {
      if (err) { return done(err); }
      if (!user) { return done(null, false); }
      return done(null, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as middleware in an Express application:

app.use(passport.authenticate('create'));

Options:

  • passReqToCallback when true, req is the first argument to the create callback (default: false)

Tests

$ npm install -d
$ npm test
