What's everyone using for client side Auth these days?


#1

So my first app I made in ember I used the Ember Auth library to handle the client side session, and was very happy with how it worked. I’m currently getting reacquainted with ember and am working on a new app, and was running into a couple problems when I noticed ember Auth hasn’t been updated in almost a year.

So I’m curious what’s the current standard for authorization? I checked out ember simple Auth, but while I appreciate es6 modules I’m not sure I want to tackle learning that as well,

https://github.com/simplabs/ember-simple-auth is active and seems to solve a lot of the boilerplate you’ll most likely end up writing.

If you’re interfacing with a cookie-based authentication service then not much is required other than being sure to pass the withCredentials headers in the XHR request.
