NodeJS Module Tutorial: A New Series
March 1, 2016
Recently at work we’ve been busy working on a number of security projects. One of the key projects is having our user directory accessible universally which means LDAP. So we’ve undertaken moving our “Directory of Truth” from Okta to JumpCloud. While Okta provides a good product, JumpCloud provides LDAP-as-a-Service (and RADIUS-as-a-service) which has worked very well in my testing so far. What does this have to do with writing a nodeJS module? Well, JumpCloud has a lovely REST API and had no NPM module.

So why isn’t this post an advertisement for Slack? Well everything isn’t all roses and sunshine in the land of Slack and there’s a new upstart worth checking out… Rocket.chat.
