Incorporating NodeBB into my web app

NodeBB Development
  • Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to incorporate NodeBB into my web application which already has its own login page and users. So, when I login to my web app I would want it to automatically register the user with NodeBB and login too. NodeBB will be on a tab and so when the logged in user clicks on the NodeBB tab everything within NodeBB will work normally. If I made sense, how would I go about doing this?

  • @agarcia17 The best thing to do would be to disable local login and registration on your NodeBB, and configure an OAuth2 endpoint on your web app, so that NodeBB can authenticate users against your app, instead of to itself

    You're advised to fork this plugin to learn how to connect NodeBB up to an already-working OAuth/OAuth2 endpoint 🙂

  • @julian thank you! I'll take a look into that plugin 🙂
