Hello there,
Is there any diagram showing the full authentication flow about hellojs, node-oauth-shim server and the auth provider (twitter, facebook, etc)?
I need to understand if it is possible to capture the authentication token once the user has been authenticated on twitter.
Is the node-oauth-shim server acting as a "men in the middle"? I mean, do a request goes back and forth through the node-oauth-shim server to the auth provider?
I don't fully understand the docs, that's why I'm asking here for a diagram in order to understand if I can use Hello.js to authenticate requests to my own application services.
Thanks.
