Ember.SimpleAuth 0.3.0

Ember.SimpleAuth 0.3.0 was just released. The main change in this release is the split of Ember.SimpleAuth into one core library and a set of extension libraries. These extension libraries include everything that’s not mandatorily required for Ember.SimpleAuth like authenticators, stores etc. so that every application would only have to load whatever it needs.

Ember.SimpleAuth implements RFC 6749 (OAuth 2.0)

Update: Ember.SimpleAuth 0.1.0 has been released! The information in this is (partially) outdated.

With the release of Ember.SimpleAuth 0.0.4 the library is compliant with OAuth 2.0 - specifically it implements the "Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant Type" as defined in RFC 6749 (thanks adamlc for the suggestion). While this is only a minor change in terms of functionality and data flow, used headers etc. it makes everyone’s life a lot easier as instead of implementing your own server endpoints you can now utilize one of several OAuth 2.0 middlewares that already implement the spec.

Ember.SimpleAuth

Update: Ember.SimpleAuth 0.1.0 has been released! The information in this is (partially) outdated.

After I wrote 2 blog posts on implementing token based authentication in Ember.js applications and got quite some feedback, good suggestions etc., I thought it would be nice to pack all these ideas in an Ember.js plugin so everybody could easily integrate that into their applications. Now I finally managed to release version 0.0.1 of that plugin: Ember.SimpleAuth.

(better) Authentication in ember.js

Update:I released an Ember.js plugin that makes it very easy to implement an authentication system as described in this post: Ember.SimpleAuth.

When we started our first ember.js project in June 2013, one of the first things we implemented was authentication. Now, almost 2 months later, it has become clear that our initial approach was not really the best and had some shortcomings. So I implemented a better authentication (mostly based on the embercasts on authentication).

Authentication in ember.js

Update:I released an Ember.js plugin that makes it very easy to implement an authentication system as described in this post: Ember.SimpleAuth.

Update: After I wrote this I found out that it’s actually not the best approach to implement authentication in Ember.js… There are some things missing and some other things can be done in a much simpler way. I wrote a summary of the (better) authentication mechanism we moved to.

I’m using the latest (as of mid June 2013) ember/ember-data/handlebars code directly from the respective github repositories in this example.
