https://travis-ci.org/emilyhorsman/socialauth.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/emilyhorsman/socialauth/badge.svg?branch=master https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/socialauth.svg https://img.shields.io/badge/python-%E2%89%A5%203.3-blue.svg https://img.shields.io/badge/code%20of%20conduct-v1.3.0-4C1161.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/socialauth.svg

A generic library to authenticate with login providers such as Twitter and Facebook.

$ pip install socialauth

Flask Example

@app.route('/whoami')
def whoami():
    res = jwt.decode(request.cookies.get('jwt'), current_app.secret_key)
    return res.get('user_id')


@app.route('/auth/<provider>')
def authenticate(provider):
    res = socialauth.http_get_provider(
        provider,
        request.base_url,
        request.args,
        current_app.secret_key,
        request.cookies.get('jwt')
    )

    if res.get('status') == 302:
        resp = make_response(redirect(res.get('redirect')))
        if res.get('set_token_cookie') is not None:
            resp.set_cookie('jwt', res.get('set_token_cookie'))

        return resp

    if res.get('status') == 200:
        resp = make_response(jsonify({ 'status': 'success' }))
        resp.set_cookie('jwt', res.get('set_token_cookie'))
        return resp

    abort(400)

Current Providers

Why?

Many social authentication solutions exist. I wanted something that didn’t have strong ties to an HTTP framework or storage backend. Preferably, I didn’t want something that dealt with a storage backend at all. This library uses JSON web tokens instead of sessions to deal with intermediate information in the OAuth flow (such as a token secret).
