redux-token-api-middleware

Alpha software - currently under heavy development

A redux middleware for making calls to APIs with token-based auth, automatically requesting a new token if needed. Actions can be calls to single or multiple API endpoints.

Installation

$ npm install @autotelic/redux-token-api-middleware

Usage

API actions

Actions that will be intercepted by the middleware are identified by the symbol CALL_TOKEN_API, and follow the Flux Standard Action pattern, however they must have a payload and have at least an endpoint in the payload.

Examples


import { CALL_TOKEN_API } from 'redux-token-api-middleware'

export const BASIC_GET_ACTION = 'BASIC_GET_ACTION'
export const BASIC_POST_ACTION = 'BASIC_POST_ACTION'

// basic GET
// method defaults to GET if not provided
const basicGetAction = () => ({
  [CALL_TOKEN_API]: {
    type: BASIC_GET_ACTION,
    payload: {
      endpoint: 'http://localhost/foo'
    }
  }
})

// basic POST
const basicPostAction = () => ({
  [CALL_TOKEN_API]: {
    type: BASIC_POST_ACTION,
    payload: {
      endpoint: 'http://localhost/bar',
      method: 'POST'
    }
  }
})

Setup

main.js

import { createTokenApiMiddleware } from 'redux-token-api-middleware'
import { createStore, applyMiddleware } from 'redux'

import reducer from './reducers'

// example refresh token action
const refreshAction = (token) => ({
  [CALL_TOKEN_API]: {
    type: 'REFRESH_TOKEN',
    endpoint: 'http://localhost/token',
    method: 'POST',
    body: JSON.stringify(token)
  }
})

You will need to provide a `retrieveRefreshToken` method to the config that will
return the refresh token that is used to obtain a new access token.

const retrieveRefreshToken = (key = 'RefreshTokenStorageKey') => {
  // This return value is passed to `refreshAction`
  return localStorage.getItem(key);
};

const config = {
  refreshAction,
  retrieveRefreshToken,
};

const apiTokenMiddleware = createTokenApiMiddleware(config)

const store = createStore(
  reducer,
  applyMiddleware(apiTokenMiddleware)
)

API

createTokenApiMiddleware(config)

Creates a Redux middleware to handle API objects.

In the config, you must define at least a refreshAction method and a retrieveRefreshToken method, which is used by the middleware to attempt to get a fresh token. This should be an API action itself.

Other methods can be passed in via config, but have defaults:

// defaults shown
const config = {
  defaultHeaders: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' },
  retrieveRefreshToken: () => {}; // To be implemented by the user for refreshing tokens.
  tokenStorageKey: 'reduxMiddlewareAuthToken',
  minTokenLifespan: 300, // seconds (min remaining lifespan to indicate new token should be requested)
  storeToken: function storeToken(key, response) {
    let token = response.token;
    localStorage.setItem(key, JSON.stringify(token));
    return token;
  },
  retrieveToken: function retrieveToken(key) {
    let storedValue = localStorage.getItem(key);
    if (!storedValue) {
      return null;
    }
    try {
      return JSON.parse(storedValue);
    }
    catch (e) {
      if (e instanceof SyntaxError) {
        return null;
      }
      throw e;
    }
  },
  checkTokenFreshness: function checkTokenFreshness(token) {
    let tokenPayload = jwt_decode(token);
    let expiry = moment.unix(tokenPayload.exp);
    return expiry.diff(moment(), 'seconds') > MIN_TOKEN_LIFESPAN;
  },
  shouldRequestNewToken: function shouldRequestNewToken() {
    const token = retrieveToken();
    return token
      ? checkTokenFreshness(token)
      : false;
  },
  addTokenToRequest: function defaultAddTokenToRequest(headers, endpoint, body, token) {
    return {
      headers: Object.assign({
        Authorization: `JWT ${token}`
      }, headers),
      endpoint,
      body
    }
  }
}

Note: retrieveRefreshToken, storeToken and retrieveToken methods may also return promises that the middleware will resolve.
