This article will teach you how to integrate GitHub OAuth Authentication into your Vue.js, MongoDB, and Golang applications.

Also, after the user is authenticated, we will generate and return JSON Web Tokens to the user’s browser or client as HTTPOnly cookies.

Create a New OAuth App on GitHub

To begin, sign in to your GitHub account. At the top-right corner, click on your profile and select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.

On the profile settings page, scroll down and click on “Developer settings” from the left sidebar.

GitHub OAuth with react and node click on the developer settings

Next, on the Developer settings screen select OAuth Apps and click on the “New OAuth App” button on the right side.

Now, provide the required data needed for the OAuth app and click on the “Register application” button.

The authorization callback URL should be a route on the Golang server. It’s similar to the Google OAuth integration in the previous article.

GitHub OAuth with react and node register application

After GitHub has registered the OAuth app, click on the “Generate a new client secret” button to generate the client secret key.

For security reasons, GitHub might redirect you to provide your password again so don’t freak out.

GitHub OAuth with react and node create credentials

Open the .env file in your server folder and add the generated client secret, client ID, and the authorized callback URL.

.env


GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_ID=your client Id here
GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET=your client secret here
GITHUB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URL=http://localhost:8000/api/sessions/oauth/github

Also, don’t forget to add the credentials to the .env.local file in the Vue.js app.


VITE_GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_ID=your client Id here
VITE_GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET=your client secret here
VITE_GITHUB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URL=http://localhost:8000/api/sessions/oauth/github

Note: use Vue_App_ prefix if you created the Vue.js app with the @vue/cli .

Generate the Consent Screen URI in Vue.js

Now that we have acquired the necessary credentials, we are now ready to implement the GitHub OAuth in our Vue.js application.

To begin, we need to create a helper function to generate the GitHub OAuth consent screen URL using the client ID, the selected scopes, and the authorization callback URL.

Adding the scopes to the consent screen URL will instruct GitHub to grant us read access to the resources listed in the scopes.

You can read more about the various scopes you can add on the GitHub OAuth official documentation.

src/utils/getGithubUrl.js


export function getGitHubUrl(from) {
  const rootURl = 'https://github.com/login/oauth/authorize';

  const options = {
    client_id: import.meta.env.VITE_GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_ID,
    redirect_uri: import.meta.env.VITE_GITHUB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URL,
    scope: 'user:email',
    state: from,
  };

  const qs = new URLSearchParams(options);

  return `${rootURl}?${qs.toString()}`;
}

Create a Simple GitHub OAuth Button with Vue.js

Now, let’s create a simple GitHub OAuth button with Vue.js and bind getGitHubUrl(from) to the href .

github oauth with vuejs and nodejs

src/App.vue


<script setup>
import GoogleLogo from './assets/google.svg';
import GitHubLogo from './assets/github.svg';
import { getGoogleUrl } from './utils/getGoogleUrl';
import { getGitHubUrl } from './utils/getGitHubUrl';

const from = '/';
</script>

<template>
  <div class="container">
    <div class="social-auth">
      <!-- Google OAuth -->
      <a :href="getGoogleUrl(from)" class="auth-btn google-auth">
        <img :src="GoogleLogo" alt="Google Logo" />
        <span>Google</span>
      </a>
      <!-- GitHub OAuth -->
      <a :href="getGitHubUrl(from)" class="auth-btn github-auth">
        <img :src="GitHubLogo" alt="GitHub Logo" />
        <span>Google</span>
      </a>
    </div>
  </div>
</template>

<style>
* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
}
a {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: inherit;
}

html {
  font-size: 62.5%;
}

body {
  font-family: Roboto, sans-serif;
  color: #222;
  font-size: 1.6rem;
}

.container {
  background-color: #2363eb;
  height: 100vh;
  width: 100vw;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
}

.social-auth {
  max-width: 27rem;
  width: 100%;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  flex-direction: column;
}

.auth-btn {
  background-color: #fff;
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 0.6rem 0;
  width: 100%;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
}

.auth-btn img {
  height: 4rem;
  margin-right: 1rem;
}
.auth-btn span {
  font-size: 1.8rem;
}

.auth-btn:hover {
  box-shadow: 0 1px 13px 0 rgb(0 0 0 / 15%);
}

.auth-btn.google-auth {
  margin-bottom: 1.5rem;
}
</style>


Now when you click on the GitHub OAuth button, you will be redirected to the consent screen where you can either click on the green authorize button assuming you are already logged in, or sign in with your email and password.

GitHub OAuth with react and node consent screen

After signing in with your email and password or when you click on the authorize button, a GET request will be made to the Golang server. The server should return a 404 error assuming it is running.

The most exciting part of the authorized callback URL is the code in the query string. Later, we’ll make a POST request with the code on the server to obtain an access token.

Implement the GitHub OAuth in Golang and MongoDB

Now open the config/default.go file and add the generated GitHub OAuth client ID, client secret, the Vue.js origin URL, and the authorized callback URL to the Config struct.

Including the environment variables in the Config struct will enable the Viper package to load and make them available in the project.


go get github.com/spf13/viper

config/default.go


type Config struct {
	DBUri    string `mapstructure:"MONGODB_LOCAL_URI"`
	RedisUri string `mapstructure:"REDIS_URL"`
	Port     string `mapstructure:"PORT"`

	ClientOrigin string `mapstructure:"CLIENT_ORIGIN"`

	AccessTokenPrivateKey  string        `mapstructure:"ACCESS_TOKEN_PRIVATE_KEY"`
	AccessTokenPublicKey   string        `mapstructure:"ACCESS_TOKEN_PUBLIC_KEY"`
	RefreshTokenPrivateKey string        `mapstructure:"REFRESH_TOKEN_PRIVATE_KEY"`
	RefreshTokenPublicKey  string        `mapstructure:"REFRESH_TOKEN_PUBLIC_KEY"`
	AccessTokenExpiresIn   time.Duration `mapstructure:"ACCESS_TOKEN_EXPIRED_IN"`
	RefreshTokenExpiresIn  time.Duration `mapstructure:"REFRESH_TOKEN_EXPIRED_IN"`
	AccessTokenMaxAge      int           `mapstructure:"ACCESS_TOKEN_MAXAGE"`
	RefreshTokenMaxAge     int           `mapstructure:"REFRESH_TOKEN_MAXAGE"`

	GitHubClientID         string `mapstructure:"GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_ID"`
	GitHubClientSecret     string `mapstructure:"GITHUB_OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET"`
	GitHubOAuthRedirectUrl string `mapstructure:"GITHUB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URL"`
}

func LoadConfig(path string) (config Config, err error) {
	viper.AddConfigPath(path)
	viper.SetConfigType("env")
	viper.SetConfigName("app")

	viper.AutomaticEnv()

	err = viper.ReadInConfig()
	if err != nil {
		return
	}

	err = viper.Unmarshal(&config)
	return
}

Get the GitHub OAuth Access Token and User’s Credentials

Now let’s create a utils/githubOAuth.go file in the root directory and add these two functions:

  • GetGitHubOauthToken() – Makes a POST request to retrieve the OAuth access token from GitHub.
  • GetGitHubUser() – Makes a GET request with the access token to obtain the user’s profile information.

utils/githubOAuth.go


type GitHubOauthToken struct {
	Access_token string
}

type GitHubUserResult struct {
	Name  string
	Photo string
	Email string
}

func GetGitHubOauthToken(code string) (*GitHubOauthToken, error) {
	const rootURl = "https://github.com/login/oauth/access_token"

	config, _ := config.LoadConfig(".")
	values := url.Values{}
	values.Add("code", code)
	values.Add("client_id", config.GitHubClientID)
	values.Add("client_secret", config.GitHubClientSecret)

	query := values.Encode()

	queryString := fmt.Sprintf("%s?%s", rootURl, bytes.NewBufferString(query))
	req, err := http.NewRequest("POST", queryString, nil)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	req.Header.Set("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")
	client := http.Client{
		Timeout: time.Second * 30,
	}

	res, err := client.Do(req)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	if res.StatusCode != http.StatusOK {
		return nil, errors.New("could not retrieve token")
	}

	resBody, err := ioutil.ReadAll(res.Body)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	parsedQuery, err := url.ParseQuery(string(resBody))
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	tokenBody := &GitHubOauthToken{
		Access_token: parsedQuery["access_token"][0],
	}

	return tokenBody, nil
}

func GetGitHubUser(access_token string) (*GitHubUserResult, error) {
	rootUrl := "https://api.github.com/user"

	req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", rootUrl, nil)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	req.Header.Set("Authorization", fmt.Sprintf("Bearer %s", access_token))

	client := http.Client{
		Timeout: time.Second * 30,
	}

	res, err := client.Do(req)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	if res.StatusCode != http.StatusOK {
		return nil, errors.New("could not retrieve user")
	}

	resBody, err := ioutil.ReadAll(res.Body)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	var GitHubUserRes map[string]interface{}

	if err := json.Unmarshal(resBody, &GitHubUserRes); err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	userBody := &GitHubUserResult{
		Email: GitHubUserRes["email"].(string),
		Name:  GitHubUserRes["login"].(string),
		Photo: GitHubUserRes["avatar_url"].(string),
	}

	return userBody, nil
}

Update the User Structs

If you are coming from a previous article in this series then update the user structs in the models/user.model.go file to have the Photo and Provider fields.

The logic here is when a user creates an account using GitHub OAuth, the provider field will be set to GitHub . However, a user who registers the account with email and password will have the provider field set to local .

models/user.model.ts


type SignUpInput struct {
	Name            string    `json:"name" bson:"name" binding:"required"`
	Email           string    `json:"email" bson:"email" binding:"required"`
	Password        string    `json:"password" bson:"password" binding:"required,min=8"`
	PasswordConfirm string    `json:"passwordConfirm" bson:"passwordConfirm,omitempty" binding:"required"`
	Role            string    `json:"role" bson:"role"`
	Provider        string    `json:"provider,omitempty" bson:"provider,omitempty"`
	Photo           string    `json:"photo,omitempty" bson:"photo,omitempty"`
	Verified        bool      `json:"verified" bson:"verified"`
	CreatedAt       time.Time `json:"created_at" bson:"created_at"`
	UpdatedAt       time.Time `json:"updated_at" bson:"updated_at"`
}

type SignInInput struct {
	Email    string `json:"email" bson:"email" binding:"required"`
	Password string `json:"password" bson:"password" binding:"required"`
}

type DBResponse struct {
	ID              primitive.ObjectID `json:"id" bson:"_id"`
	Name            string             `json:"name" bson:"name"`
	Email           string             `json:"email" bson:"email"`
	Password        string             `json:"password" bson:"password"`
	PasswordConfirm string             `json:"passwordConfirm,omitempty" bson:"passwordConfirm,omitempty"`
	Provider        string             `json:"provider" bson:"provider"`
	Photo           string             `json:"photo,omitempty" bson:"photo,omitempty"`
	Role            string             `json:"role" bson:"role"`
	Verified        bool               `json:"verified" bson:"verified"`
	CreatedAt       time.Time          `json:"created_at" bson:"created_at"`
	UpdatedAt       time.Time          `json:"updated_at" bson:"updated_at"`
}

type UserResponse struct {
	ID        primitive.ObjectID `json:"id,omitempty" bson:"_id,omitempty"`
	Name      string             `json:"name,omitempty" bson:"name,omitempty"`
	Email     string             `json:"email,omitempty" bson:"email,omitempty"`
	Role      string             `json:"role,omitempty" bson:"role,omitempty"`
	Photo     string             `json:"photo,omitempty" bson:"photo,omitempty"`
	Provider  string             `json:"provider" bson:"provider"`
	CreatedAt time.Time          `json:"created_at" bson:"created_at"`
	UpdatedAt time.Time          `json:"updated_at" bson:"updated_at"`
}

type UpdateDBUser struct {
	ID              primitive.ObjectID `json:"id,omitempty" bson:"_id,omitempty"`
	Name            string             `json:"name,omitempty" bson:"name,omitempty"`
	Email           string             `json:"email,omitempty" bson:"email,omitempty"`
	Password        string             `json:"password,omitempty" bson:"password,omitempty"`
	PasswordConfirm string             `json:"passwordConfirm,omitempty" bson:"passwordConfirm,omitempty"`
	Role            string             `json:"role,omitempty" bson:"role,omitempty"`
	Provider        string             `json:"provider" bson:"provider"`
	Photo           string             `json:"photo,omitempty" bson:"photo,omitempty"`
	Verified        bool               `json:"verified,omitempty" bson:"verified,omitempty"`
	CreatedAt       time.Time          `json:"created_at,omitempty" bson:"created_at,omitempty"`
	UpdatedAt       time.Time          `json:"updated_at,omitempty" bson:"updated_at,omitempty"`
}

func FilteredResponse(user *DBResponse) UserResponse {
	return UserResponse{
		ID:        user.ID,
		Email:     user.Email,
		Name:      user.Name,
		Role:      user.Role,
		Provider:  user.Provider,
		Photo:     user.Photo,
		CreatedAt: user.CreatedAt,
		UpdatedAt: user.UpdatedAt,
	}
}

Add a Service to Upsert the User Document

Before we start working on the service, let’s create a helper function to marshal and unmarshal the struct into a BSON document.

utils/helper.go


func ToDoc(v interface{}) (doc *bson.D, err error) {
	data, err := bson.Marshal(v)
	if err != nil {
		return
	}

	err = bson.Unmarshal(data, &doc)
	return
}

Now open the services/user.service.go file and add an UpsertUser method to the UserService interface. The purpose of the UpsertUser service is to access and mutate the MongoDB database.

services/user.service.go


type UserService interface {
	FindUserById(string) (*models.DBResponse, error)
	FindUserByEmail(string) (*models.DBResponse, error)
	UpsertUser(string, *models.UpdateDBUser) (*models.DBResponse, error)
}

Next, add the following code to the services/user.service.impl.go file. The UpsertUser function receiver will contain the logic to upsert the user’s credentials in the MongoDB database.

services/user.service.impl.go


type UserServiceImpl struct {
	collection *mongo.Collection
	ctx        context.Context
}

func NewUserServiceImpl(collection *mongo.Collection, ctx context.Context) UserService {
	return &UserServiceImpl{collection, ctx}
}

// FindUserByID

// FindUserByEmail

// UpsertUser
func (uc *UserServiceImpl) UpsertUser(email string, data *models.UpdateDBUser) (*models.DBResponse, error) {
	doc, err := utils.ToDoc(data)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
	}

	opts := options.FindOneAndUpdate().SetUpsert(true).SetReturnDocument(1)
	query := bson.D{{Key: "email", Value: email}}
	update := bson.D{{Key: "$set", Value: doc}}
	res := uc.collection.FindOneAndUpdate(uc.ctx, query, update, opts)

	var updatedPost *models.DBResponse

	if err := res.Decode(&updatedPost); err != nil {
		return nil, errors.New("no post with that Id exists")
	}

	return updatedPost, nil
}

If you carefully take a look at the code above you’ll notice that we used .SetUpsert(true) on the FindOneAndUpdateOptions instance returned by calling options.FindOneAndUpdate() .

Including .SetUpsert(true) will tell MongoDB to create a new user document if the email specified in the BSON query does not exist in the database whereas MongoDB will only update the user document if that email already exists.

Create the GitHub OAuth Handler

To begin, we need to install the Golang JWT package to enable us to generate the JSON Web Tokens.

The current version of the Golang JWT package is v4 but this might change in the future so navigate to their GitHub page to install the recent version.


go get -u github.com/golang-jwt/jwt/v4

Now let’s create two utility functions to generate and verify the access and refresh tokens.

utils/token.go


func CreateToken(ttl time.Duration, payload interface{}, privateKey string) (string, error) {
	decodedPrivateKey, err := base64.StdEncoding.DecodeString(privateKey)
	if err != nil {
		return "", fmt.Errorf("could not decode key: %w", err)
	}
	key, err := jwt.ParseRSAPrivateKeyFromPEM(decodedPrivateKey)

	if err != nil {
		return "", fmt.Errorf("create: parse key: %w", err)
	}

	now := time.Now().UTC()

	claims := make(jwt.MapClaims)
	claims["sub"] = payload
	claims["exp"] = now.Add(ttl).Unix()
	claims["iat"] = now.Unix()
	claims["nbf"] = now.Unix()

	token, err := jwt.NewWithClaims(jwt.SigningMethodRS256, claims).SignedString(key)

	if err != nil {
		return "", fmt.Errorf("create: sign token: %w", err)
	}

	return token, nil
}

func ValidateToken(token string, publicKey string) (interface{}, error) {
	decodedPublicKey, err := base64.StdEncoding.DecodeString(publicKey)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, fmt.Errorf("could not decode: %w", err)
	}

	key, err := jwt.ParseRSAPublicKeyFromPEM(decodedPublicKey)

	if err != nil {
		return "", fmt.Errorf("validate: parse key: %w", err)
	}

	parsedToken, err := jwt.Parse(token, func(t *jwt.Token) (interface{}, error) {
		if _, ok := t.Method.(*jwt.SigningMethodRSA); !ok {
			return nil, fmt.Errorf("unexpected method: %s", t.Header["alg"])
		}
		return key, nil
	})

	if err != nil {
		return nil, fmt.Errorf("validate: %w", err)
	}

	claims, ok := parsedToken.Claims.(jwt.MapClaims)
	if !ok || !parsedToken.Valid {
		return nil, fmt.Errorf("validate: invalid token")
	}

	return claims["sub"], nil
}

Next, let’s add the GitHubOAuth controller to the controllers/auth.controller.go file. This handler will be evoked to authenticate the user when GitHub redirects them to the server.

controllers/auth.controller.ts


type AuthController struct {
	authService services.AuthService
	userService services.UserService
}

func NewAuthController(authService services.AuthService, userService services.UserService) AuthController {
	return AuthController{authService, userService}
}

// SignUp User

// SignIn User

// Refresh Access Token

//Google OAuth

// GitHub OAuth
func (ac *AuthController) GitHubOAuth(ctx *gin.Context) {
	code := ctx.Query("code")
	var pathUrl string = "/"

	if ctx.Query("state") != "" {
		pathUrl = ctx.Query("state")
	}

	if code == "" {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusUnauthorized, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": "Authorization code not provided!"})
		return
	}

	// Use the code to get the id and access tokens
	tokenRes, err := utils.GetGitHubOauthToken(code)

	if err != nil {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusBadGateway, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": err.Error()})
	}

	user, err := utils.GetGitHubUser(tokenRes.Access_token)

	if err != nil {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusBadGateway, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": err.Error()})
	}

	createdAt := time.Now()
	resBody := &models.UpdateDBUser{
		Email:     user.Email,
		Name:      user.Name,
		Photo:     user.Photo,
		Provider:  "github",
		Role:      "user",
		Verified:  true,
		CreatedAt: createdAt,
		UpdatedAt: createdAt,
	}

	updatedUser, err := ac.userService.UpsertUser(user.Email, resBody)
	if err != nil {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusBadGateway, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": err.Error()})
	}

	config, _ := config.LoadConfig(".")

	// Generate Tokens
	access_token, err := utils.CreateToken(config.AccessTokenExpiresIn, updatedUser.ID.Hex(), config.AccessTokenPrivateKey)
	if err != nil {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusBadRequest, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": err.Error()})
		return
	}

	refresh_token, err := utils.CreateToken(config.RefreshTokenExpiresIn, updatedUser.ID.Hex(), config.RefreshTokenPrivateKey)
	if err != nil {
		ctx.JSON(http.StatusBadRequest, gin.H{"status": "fail", "message": err.Error()})
		return
	}

	ctx.SetCookie("access_token", access_token, config.AccessTokenMaxAge*60, "/", "localhost", false, true)
	ctx.SetCookie("refresh_token", refresh_token, config.RefreshTokenMaxAge*60, "/", "localhost", false, true)
	ctx.SetCookie("logged_in", "true", config.AccessTokenMaxAge*60, "/", "localhost", false, false)

	ctx.Redirect(http.StatusTemporaryRedirect, fmt.Sprint(config.ClientOrigin, pathUrl))
}

Define the GitHub OAuth Route

Next, let’s add the GitHub OAuth route to the routes/session.routes.go file.

routes/session.routes.go


type SessionRouteController struct {
	authController controllers.AuthController
}

func NewSessionRouteController(authController controllers.AuthController) SessionRouteController {
	return SessionRouteController{authController}
}

func (rc *SessionRouteController) SessionRoute(rg *gin.RouterGroup) {
	router := rg.Group("/sessions/oauth")

	router.GET("/google", rc.authController.GoogleOAuth)
        router.GET("/github", rc.authController.GitHubOAuth)
}

Register the Session Router

Now in the main.go file, instantiate the router constructor function, and add it to the Gin Gonic middleware stack.

We also need to install the cors package and include it in the middleware stack to enable us to accept requests from the Vue.js app.


var (
	server      *gin.Engine
	ctx         context.Context
	mongoclient *mongo.Client
	redisclient *redis.Client

	userService         services.UserService
	UserController      controllers.UserController
	UserRouteController routes.UserRouteController

	authCollection         *mongo.Collection
	authService            services.AuthService
	AuthController         controllers.AuthController
	AuthRouteController    routes.AuthRouteController
	SessionRouteController routes.SessionRouteController
)

func init() {
	config, err := config.LoadConfig(".")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Could not load environment variables", err)
	}

	ctx = context.TODO()

	// Connect to MongoDB
	mongoconn := options.Client().ApplyURI(config.DBUri)
	mongoclient, err := mongo.Connect(ctx, mongoconn)

	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	if err := mongoclient.Ping(ctx, readpref.Primary()); err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	fmt.Println("MongoDB successfully connected...")

	// Connect to Redis
	redisclient = redis.NewClient(&redis.Options{
		Addr: config.RedisUri,
	})

	if _, err := redisclient.Ping(ctx).Result(); err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	err = redisclient.Set(ctx, "test", "Welcome to Golang with Redis and MongoDB", 0).Err()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	fmt.Println("Redis client connected successfully...")
