In the last episode, you were introduced to the basic functional needs of the administrative and dashboard site. Having gone over the core of what this app needs, it's time to dive in!
But before the real functionality is put in place, it would be nice to know that the site is secured. After all, you don't want unauthorized people seeing your reports, uploading files or otherwise messing with the media in your app!
In this episode, then, you'll see the core of what it takes to add authentication to an Express app, using the “iam” module for authentication plumbing.
… authentication … “plumbing” ?!
Check out the episode and see just what that means!
