That is more than likely what I'll have to do for now until this can passed globally. Thanks @pitaj
I have a web application with a local login and registration system using email and password.
I want to programatically create a forum account upon registering for the web application, using the same email and password.
Is there a way to do this yet or no? I don't mind writing a plugin, but I want to make sure there is no existing way to do this.
There are multiple ways depending on your needs. You probably want nodebb-plugin-session-sharing. This plugin reads a cookie from your app, and when a user logged into your app visits the forum, will create their account and log them in. It can also redirect guests to your apps page, and sign users out when they log out of your app.
@yariplus Thanks I will check it out.
@yariplus Do you know of a way to just create the users one time? I see the createUser function in nodebb and I'll probably write a plugin to use that, unless you know of someone who has done this already.
@biz That's probably the best way. Any one of the
import plugins should have all the methods you need in it already, and you can just add the accounts manually or read from your db etc.
@julian Oh definitely, will do. Thanks.
