passport for authentication
Auth.js Authentication for the Web
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Dec 2022
I went down the rabbithole of using next-auth (now authjs) for a recent project. Having used Passport.js  for Oauth2 the last time I was doing node.js ~3 years ago, I found this library to have many footguns as comments/answers on SO and Github.
Seems like many people are trying to shoehorn their codebase  (!!) to make it work with the way the library manages sign-in flow, redirects, cookies, logout, etc. 
These were solved problems in the MEAN stack era with middlewares, but now that Next.js/react is the trend, people are doing everything they can to make it work - from relaxing security configs, to stashing things in the JWT just so some callback can get an additional piece of data.
I'm having error saying that req.isAuthenticated() not a function

How to sign out user after a period of time
5 projects | /r/SaaS | 3 Jan 2022
I use PassportJS to manage authentication strategies and express-session with connect-redis to manage user sessions. What this means is that when a user logs in, their session is created on redis and has an identifier assigned to it which is stored in a an http only cookie on the user s browser with 2w expiry time. If they login again, I extend the expiration date (possible using express-session)
