(Solved) Is it possible to authorize multiple account services?


#1

I’ve been toying with the Facebook and twitter packages trying to gain the ability to login to the site and authorize both services. This doesn’t have to be a one button operation but say you login using Facebook and then grab a token for twitter. The idea being to post to both services from the site. Has anyone done this with Meteor?

I posted this question too quickly. A little better searching and I found a couple oauth packages that help me with this. If I could remove this I would :smile:

What oauth packages d you use? I cant get any to work. :frowning:


#4

Actually I was wrong I never solved it. I thought I had and then just moved on to another side project. I still can’t seem to get it working. Accounts meld or merge just doesn’t seem to be functioning properly. I think i just need to interrupt the login method meteor fires when someone logs in with an external service and just haven’t had time to really attack this. I’ve see a ton of apps do it since I posted this though so it shouldn’t be that hard :sob:

I’m curious about Auth0, on the one hand I would prefer an open source solution, but it seems pretty nice and easy to use… I’m wondering if other people have tried it and if there’s any downsides to using a third-party authentication system like auth0.

@seifip did you end up using Auth0 with your Meteor app?

Actually I’m interested if that worked out for you as well @seifip. I never did get back on that project but have a similar requirement coming up shortly where I’m going to have to tackle the multiple authentications again.
