Dealing with accounts-password's username case sensitivity


#1

I’m wondering how people are accounting for the case-sensitivity of Meteor’s accounts-password package for usernames.

The way things are right now, if someone registers with example@Example.com and tries to log in using example@example.com, the login fails.

What have been your solutions to this problem? Do you write your own login system just to achieve username case-insensitivity?

Here is a discussion

Yep I’ve been following that discussion. So far there’s no official solution. There has to be a solution that someone has created. There are a lot of production Meteor apps now. Nobody expects for their logins to be case-sensitive and with mobile devices auto-capitalizing everything this is something that people are going to run into more and more.

How about find collection hooks on Meteor.users? Sorry I haven’t a working example yet.
