Readme

@accounts/meteor-adapter

JSAccounts adapter for MeteorJS: override and extends Meteor methods and publication with JSAccounts authentication.

Installing

Start by installing and adding to your Meteor project:

meteor npm install --save @accounts/meteor-adapter

Use in Meteor client-side

To use with Meteor client-side, use your AccountsClient instance and Meteor instance, and use this package on your Meteor's client-side entry point (usually client/main.js):

import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';
import AccountsClient from '@accounts/client';
import { wrapMeteorClient } from '@accounts/meteor-adapter';

AccountsClient.config({}); // Config your accounts client

wrapMeteorClient(Meteor, AccountsClient);

Now, each time you call Meteor.call or Meteor.subscribe - the JSAccounts accessToken will be appended to your request, and your server will be able to validate it.

Use in Meteor server-side

To use with Meteor client-side, use your AccountsServer instance and Meteor instance, and use this package on your Meteor's client-side entry point (usually server/main.js):

import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';
import AccountsServer from '@accounts/server';
import { wrapMeteorServer } from '@accounts/meteor-adapter';

AccountsServer.config({}); // Config your accounts server

wrapMeteorServer(Meteor, AccountsServer);

Meteor.startup(() => {
    // ...
});

Now, each time you call Meteor.methods or Meteor.publish - the JSAccounts accessToken will parsed and validated, and the user and userId will be available for use inside your callback, for example:

Meteor.publish('myPulication', function() {
    const user = this.user(); // JSAccounts user, or null if there is no user at all
    const userId = this.userId(); // JSAccounts user id, or null if there is no user at all
});

Meteor.methods({
    myFunc: function() {
        const user = this.user(); // JSAccounts user, or null if there is no user at all
        const userId = this.userId(); // JSAccounts user id, or null if there is no user at all
    }
});

Note that if there method is called without an authenticated use in the client side, the user and userId will return null values - so you should check it inside your method. If the user specified a token but it's not valid - the method/pulication will fail with the JSAccounts error.

If you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open an issue on github!
