passport-civic

Passport strategy for authenticating with Civic

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

Install

$ npm install passport-civic

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Civic authentication strategy authenticates users using a Civic app. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a appId, prvKey, and appSecret.

passport.use(new CivicStrategy({
    appId: APP_ID,
    prvKey: PRIVATE_KEY,
    appSecret: "Something-secret"
  },
  function(profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ civicId: profile.userId }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Parameters

The verify callback can be supplied with the request object by setting the passReqToCallback option to true, and changing callback arguments accordingly.

passport.use(new CivicStrategy({
    appId: APP_ID,
    prvKey: PRIVATE_KEY,
    appSecret: "Something-secret"
    passReqToCallback: true
  },
  function(req, profile, done) {
    // request object is now first argument
    // ...
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

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