Passport-Maltio

Passport strategies for authenticating with Malt.io using OAuth 2.0.

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

Install

$ npm install passport-maltio

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Malt.io OAuth 2.0 authentication strategy authenticates users using a Malt.io 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.

var MaltioStrategy = require('passport-maltio');

passport.use(new MaltioStrategy({
    clientID: MALTIO_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: MALTIO_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/maltio/callback"
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ externalId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

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

Now, to log in a user
