Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

passport-cognito

Passport strategy for Cognito User Pools not for Cognito Identity.

This module lets you authenticate using Cognito User Pools in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Cognito User Pools authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

Install

$ npm install passport-cognito

Usage

Configure Strategy

var CognitoStrategy = require('passport-cognito')

passport.use(new CognitoStrategy({
    userPoolId: 'ap-northeast-1_eSjqLfqKc',
    clientId: 'vtvg02tr21zmxvspyvawtv09b',
    region: 'ap-northeast-1'
  },
  function(accessToken, idToken, refreshToken, user, cb) {
    process.nextTick(function() {
      ...
      cb(null, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

To authenticate a user, send username and password to server-side by POST request like the following.

// Browser
$.ajax({
  type: "POST",
  url: '/auth/cognito',
  data: { username: username, password: password }
})

Then the strategy receive username and password as a req object. In detail, req.body.username and req.body.password should not be undefined. Then, call authenticate method as express middleware.

// Server
app.post('/auth/cognito',
  passport.authenticate('cognito', {
    successRedirect: '/',
    failureRedirect: '/login'
}));

FAQ

How to get session expiration ?

You can get session object by adding a variable to argument vector. Then, by executing getExpiration method, session expiration is retrieved.

var CognitoStrategy = require('passport-cognito')

passport.use(new CognitoStrategy({
    userPoolId: 'ap-northeast-1_eSjqLfqKc',
    clientId: 'vtvg02tr21zmxvspyvawtv09b',
    region: 'ap-northeast-1'
  },
  function(accessToken, idToken, refreshToken, user, session, cb) {
    process.nextTick(function() {
      user.expiration = session.getIdToken().getExpiration();
      ...
      cb(null, user);
    });
  }
));
