Obtain access tokens to Login.gov accounts with Handshake.

How it works

With your instance deployed, simply redirect users to:


Where HANDLER_ID is either logingov or the value passed to the optional id argument of the LoginGOV() factory. (See Usage below.)

Handshake will take the user through the Login.gov OAuth flow and redirect them back to the URL specified by the callback_uri query parameter.


Modify your app/options.ts file to include the LoginGOV() handler like so:

import { LoginGOV, HandshakeOptions } from "handshake";
const config: HandshakeOptions = {
  handlers: [
      clientId: string,
      clientSecret: string,
// ...

Consult the reference to learn about HandshakeOptions.
