  • Building a CLI app with the Device Code grant and golang

    Ever need to authenticate a user from a device that doesn’t provide a great interface for logging in? Maybe your device is a smart TV, a Raspberry Pi, or perhaps a CLI app? Oh and you’re a fan of Golang? Well, then this is the post for you!

  • Securing a Ruby on Rails API with JWTs

    Ruby on Rails is a modern web framework, but also a great way to build an API. The ability to quickly jam out your business logic, the ease of creating and modifying data models, and the built-in testing support all combine to make creating a JSON API in Rails a no brainer. Add in a sleek admin interface using something like RailsAdmin and you can build and manage APIs easily.

    But you don’t typically want just anyone to consume your API. You want to ensure the right people and applications are doing so. In this tutorial, we’re going to build an API in Ruby on Rails 6, and secure it using JSON Web Tokens (JWTs).

  • User registration and sign-in with Laravel and FusionAuth

    Laravel is one of the most popular PHP application frameworks in the marketplace today. While it includes a simple authentication model, most large-scale applications will outgrow it pretty quickly. FusionAuth pairs well with Laravel because it can handle more complex user authentication models, roles, single sign-on, and more.

  • ASP.NET Core Example with Custom Claims

    Previously, we used ASP.NET Core to build a web application with a single protected page. Let’s extend the application to display the role of the user in FusionAuth as well as a custom claim. We’re going to create a group, assign a role to that group and then place our user in that group. We’ll also explore modifying our JSON Web Token (JWT) by using a lambda to expose the user’s favorite color. Finally, we’ll display all the claims on the “Secure” page.
