yesod-auth-oauth2 alternatives and similar packages

Based on the "yesod" category.
Alternatively, view yesod-auth-oauth2 alternatives based on common mentions on social networks and blogs.

Do you think we are missing an alternative of yesod-auth-oauth2 or a related project?

Add another 'yesod' Package



OAuth2 AuthPlugins for Yesod.


import Yesod.Auth
import Yesod.Auth.OAuth2.GitHub

instance YesodAuth App where
    -- ...

    authPlugins _ = [oauth2GitHub clientId clientSecret]

clientId :: Text
clientId = "..."

clientSecret :: Text
clientSecret = "..."

Some plugins, such as GitHub and Slack, have scoped functions for requesting additional information:

oauth2SlackScoped [SlackBasicScope, SlackEmailScope] clientId clientSecret

Working with Extra Data

We put the minimal amount of user data possible in credsExtra -- just enough to support you parsing or fetching additional data yourself.

For example, if you work with GitHub and GitHub user profiles, you likely already have a model and a way to parse the /user response. Rather than duplicate all that in our library, we try to make it easy for you to re-use that code yourself:

authenticate creds = do
        -- You can run your own FromJSON parser on the response we already have
        eGitHubUser :: Either String GitHubUser
        eGitHubUser = getUserResponseJSON creds

        -- Avert your eyes, simplified example
        Just accessToken = getAccessToken creds
        Right githubUser = eGitHubUser

    -- Or make followup requests using our access token
    runGitHub accessToken $ userRepositories githubUser

    -- Or store it for later
    insert User
        { userIdent = credsIdent creds
        , userAccessToken = accessToken

NOTE: Avoid looking up values in credsExtra yourself; prefer the provided get functions. The data representation itself is no longer considered public API.

Local Providers

If we don't supply a "Provider" (e.g. GitHub, Google, etc) you need, you can write your own using our provided Prelude:

import Yesod.Auth.OAuth2.Prelude

pluginName :: Text
pluginName = "mysite"

oauth2MySite :: YesodAuth m => Text -> Text -> AuthPlugin m
oauth2MySite clientId clientSecret =
    authOAuth2 pluginName oauth2 $ \manager token -> do
        -- Fetch a profile using the manager and token, leave it a ByteString
        userResponse <- -- ...

        -- Parse it to your preferred identifier, e.g. with Data.Aeson
        userId <- -- ...

        -- See authGetProfile for the typical case

        pure Creds
            { credsPlugin = pluginName
            , credsIdent = userId
            , credsExtra = setExtra token userResponse
    oauth2 = OAuth2
        { oauthClientId = clientId
        , oauthClientSecret = Just clientSecret
        , oauthOAuthorizeEndpoint = "https://mysite.com/oauth/authorize"
        , oauthAccessTokenEndpoint = "https://mysite.com/oauth/token"
        , oauthCallback = Nothing

The Prelude module is considered public API, though we may build something higher-level that is more convenient for this use-case in the future.
