Ionic Social Login OAuth - With Backend

If you want the Social Login Features without the backend then check out Ionic Social Sign-On Basic

If you don't need Social Login part then check out: Ionic Session Login.

If you need sidemenu navigation instead use: Single Sign-On Side Menu

This is a barebone full stack application that takes the pain away from creating user accounts, login, logout and session saving as well as allowing Social Login/Signup. It uses Node, Express, MySQL, Sequelize on the backend and Ionic with cordovaOauth on the Frontend. Save a lot of time and jumpstart your app development with this awesome starter kit! Use it as a template or take out the parts you need for your app.

All of the login logic is in the services.js keeping the controllers clean for your own stuff. This makes the code very clean, reusable and modifiable. It can easily be modified to use MongoDB or some other DB system. This application creates user accounts from emails and passwords. Passwords are encrypted with crypto.

This application does not send or verify emails. It simply creates the accounts. It uses emails as usernames to verify they are unique.

Node.js App Deployment Tutorial

  • It is highly recommended you use as your app hosting service

Common Issues

  • If you're using Android Emulator or testing on a Smartphone, you cannot access your computer's localhost. In the Frontend/www/js/services.js you have to replace all the localhost references with your computer external ip such as 192.x.x.x. Find out what your computer's IP is and put it instead of localhost. Make sure the smartphone and your computer are on the same wifi network or your server is accessible globally.
  • If you try to run with ionic server or ionic run -l you will encounter Cross Origin Issues (CORS). You can read about it here.
