• I have an existing website which is built using express and node.js , I have to incorporate nodebb in that website, I am using facebook login for both of them but I have to login into them seperately one by one(using same facebook app for both). What I want to do is,

    1.Login via fb or any sso in the main site and the user should be logged in the forum via the same automatically.

    1. How can I integrate nodebb in my website so that the look and feel doesn't change, it looks like I am on a completely different website, just need some tips to integrate nodebb in my existing website.

    How can I achieve these two?

    OAuth2 endpoint on your main site. Pinging @julian because he has the canned response for this

    The recommended method of sharing sessions between two separate and distinct applications is through OAuth2. We recommend this approach because NodeBB maintains its own user records, so that we can keep track of user-related metrics and other data. Relying on another database would be tricky, prone to breaking, and quite possibly dangerous.

    Luckily, it's quite straightforward to get things working with OAuth2!

    The first step is getting your application to expose an OAuth2 endpoint. If you're running a Node.js based app, you can use a module called OAuth2orize.

    Once that is set up, you'll want to take a look at the SSO plugin skeleton for customised OAuth deployments -- nodebb-plugin-sso-oauth. You'll take this plugin, fork it, and modify it to communicate with your OAuth endpoint.

    Once everything is working properly, you should be able to register and log in/out via your web app.

    Canned responses working perfectly I see. 😛

    Hah. I was wondering what purpose I'd use the canned responses plugin for. Now I know:

    Pinging @julian - he probably has the canned response for your issue kthx

    Stahp :rage2:

  • Admin

    Haha or alternatively a feature request: ability to copy other people's canned responses 😉
