Passport-Flickr

Passport strategy for authenticating with Flickr using the OAuth 1.0a API.

Installation

$ npm install passport-flickr

Usage

Configure Strategy

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

passport.use(new FlickrStrategy({
    consumerKey: FLICKR_CONSUMER_KEY,
    consumerSecret: FLICKR_CONSUMER_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/flickr/callback"
  },
  function(token, tokenSecret, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ flickrId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/flickr',
  passport.authenticate('flickr'),
  function(req, res){
    // The request will be redirected to Flickr for authentication, so this
    // function will not be called.
  });

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