Stormpath User Management for Loopback.


This library is meant to provide an interface between Loopback and Stormpath.

The end goal is provide the best possible user management system of all time for Loopback developers!

If you don't already have a Stormpath account, go make one! https://stormpath.com


To get started, you'll need to have Strongloop installed:

$ npm install -g strongloop

Next, you need to create a Loopback project to work in:

$ slc loopback

Go through the questions to create your project.

Next, go into your project directory and edit your server/server.js file. You'll need to add the following import statement to the top of your file:

var stormpath = require('loopback-stormpath');

You'll also need to add the following line of code below your app creation stuff. You should have something like this:

var app = module.exports = loopback();

// Initialize Stormpath.

After that, go ahead and open up server/model-config.json, and do two things:

  • Firstly, remove the User object. This is the default Loopback User model which you won't be using.
  • Secondly, add in a StormpathUser object like this:
"StormpathUser": {
  "dataSource": "stormpath"

StormpathUser is the new user model you'll be using from now on.

Next, open up server/datasources.json. Here you'll need to define your Stormpath data source, and specify your Stormpath API credentials. Use the following JSON blob as a configuration example, but substitute in your own credentials:

"stormpath": {
  "name": "stormpath",
  "connector": "stormpath",
  "apiKeyId": "xxx",
  "apiKeySecret": "xxx",
  "applicationHref": "https://api.stormpath.com/v1/applications/xxx"

That's it! You've now fully configured your Loopback project to work with Stormpath. If you run your project ($ slc run), then visit the API explorer: http://localhost:3000/explorer -- you should see a StormpathUser API endpoint that you can use to create and manage your users with Stormpath!

NOTE: This is a VERY early release. We're still working hard to improve things, and make this feature complete! If you have feedback, please send it to us: support@stormpath.com
