How to redirect passport to referrer after authentication


PassortJSPassportJS by default redirects to the homepage and not the referrer, after authentication. To achieve redirection to the referrer without installing any additional plugins, all that needs to be done is to store the referrer URL in session.redirectTo variable. This can be used to later redirect the user once the authentication is performed successfully. It does not matter whether the session is stored locally or remotely (scalable applications).

How to use AngularJS Services

angularjs by google

angularjs by googleThere are many ways in which one can use Angular Services in an Angular project. The following is a good example of a frequent use case for the angular factory. (Services can be implemented by either angular service or angular factory)

When we write a service, the main goal is to be make it modular and reusable. In the following service named ‘serviceModuleName’, we have added support for HTTP GET & POST calls. We are handling them using promises being returned. For this purpose we use the $q service in angular.

Define a Service

Injecting a Service into the Controller

Calling a Service from inside a Controller

Since a promise is being returned by the service we need to handle it with then, catch and finally blocks. ‘then’ returns the data, ‘catch’ catches the exception thrown and it can be handled here. Finally the ‘finally’ block of statements are executed regardless of success/failure.

AngularJS 1.X ng-options

Using the predefined angularjs ng-options directive can be quite tricky at times. The following is a basic example of how to iterate through list of people. The value of the person that is chosen from the drop down list is store in $scope.chosenPerson and can be accessed with the same from the controller.
Example 1:

ng-options 1


Example 2: If you just want the value to be last name instead of the whole object  use this.

ng-options 1


To access a nested array and show it as part of the dropdown the following example demonstrates how to do that,

Example 3


ng-options output2


In the above example if the countries and locations were 2 completely different objects, then a hashmap can be used to link those two objects by keys and values.
