Passport.js authentication for Mental Vein

Passport strategy for authenticating with Mental Vein using the OAuth 2.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using Mental Vein in your Node.js applications.

By plugging into Passport, Mental Vein authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

Install

npm install passport-mentalvein

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Mental Vein authentication strategy authenticates users using a Mental Vein 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 OAuth2Strategy = require("passport-mentalvein").Strategy;

passport.use(new OAuth2Strategy({
    clientID: CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://www.example.net/auth/mentalvein/callback"
    },
    function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ providerId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
        return done(err, user);
    });
    }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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

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