A very strange night
Yesterday at night i decided to build the auth system for the application that im currently working on, in order to complete this task i watched some videos regarding this particular topic and based on the git hub repository of this instructor i was able to build up half of the auth system, meaning that i developed only the backend
Now, even tho my backend is working with this auth system just fine i found myself in the situation where i did not understood almost all of it, i dont really know why this thing that i build up works!
So as you can tell, that night was very strange
What are the pieces that comforms my auth system?
Well that i know of course, i used mongoDB, mongoose, passport, bcrypt, jwt, and i think thats all of them.
Help me out?
So i was wondering if by any chance, one of you guys have a book or a reference to a good post, or maybe a good documentation, a video, something that might help me understand a little bit more about how the auth system works on nodeJS, and what is a JWT token, what does it really do.
Watching those video series helped me a little bit but i still dont get most of it.
