Node.js Express Login with MySQL Example

Hi Guys,

Today, I will learn how to express login with mysql in node.js We will show example of Node.js Express Login with MySQL As well as learn how to handle Session in node express js, body-parser to handle form data, and how to contact DB to node express js app.

you step by step to creating a login system in node js using express js framework with MySQL database.

Here, I will give you full example for simply express login with mysql in Node.js bellow.

Step 1: Install Node Express JS Setup


In this step, I will Install express js setup.The following command install express js setup.

express --view=ejs loginSystem

Next open loginSystem setup with any text editor. And use the following command to enter your loginSystem app directories, So open your cmd and run the following command.

cd loginSystem

Your node express js app structure looks like:

After, you need to install some required pacakges, so open again your cmd and run the following commands.

npm install

npm install express-flash --save

npm install express-session --save

npm install express-validator --save

npm install method-override --save

npm install mysql --save

express-flash

Flash is an extension of connect-flash with the ability to define a flash message and render it without redirecting the request.

In this node js mysql crud tutorial express flash is used to display a warning, error and information message

express-session

Express-session is used to made a session as like in PHP. In this node js mysql crud tutorial, session is needed as the express requirement of express-flash.

express-validator

Express validator is used to validate form data it is easy to use. express-validator highly effective and efficient way to accelerate the creation of applications.

method-override

NPM is used to run a DELETE and PUT method from an HTML form. In several web browsers only support GET and POST methods.

MySQL

Driver to connect node.js with MySQL

Step 2: Connect App with DB

Before connecting DB to your application, create table into your database by using the following SQL query:

CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS `nodelogin` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

USE `nodelogin`;

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `users` (

`id` int(11) NOT NULL,

`name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,

`password` varchar(255) NOT NULL,

`email` varchar(100) NOT NULL

) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=2 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

INSERT INTO `users` (`id`, `name`, `password`, `email`) VALUES (1, 'test', 'test', '[email protected]');

ALTER TABLE `users` ADD PRIMARY KEY (`id`);

ALTER TABLE `users` MODIFY `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,AUTO_INCREMENT=2;

After, you need to create one folder named lib and create a new file name db.js inside lib folder.

Note that, This file is used to connect your node express js app to MySQL db.

lib/db.js

Update the MySQL connection code into your db.js file:

var mysql=require('mysql');

var connection=mysql.createConnection({

host:'localhost',

user:'root',

password:'your password',

database:'nodelogin'

});

connection.connect(function(error){

if(!!error){

console.log(error);

}else{

console.log('Connected!:)');

}

});

module.exports = connection;

Step 3: Include Packages and routes in app.js

Now this step, you need to include all packages in app.js file whose installed above and also initialize the session in this file.

So go to app.js file and update the following code:

var createError = require('http-errors');

var express = require('express');

var path = require('path');

var cookieParser = require('cookie-parser');

var logger = require('morgan');

var expressValidator = require('express-validator');

var flash = require('express-flash');

var session = require('express-session');

var bodyParser = require('body-parser');

var mysql = require('mysql');

var connection = require('./lib/db');

var indexRouter = require('./routes/index');

var authRouter = require('./routes/auth');

var app = express();

// view engine setup

app.set('views', path.join(__dirname, 'views'));

app.set('view engine', 'ejs');

app.use(logger('dev'));

app.use(bodyParser.json());

app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({ extended: true }));

app.use(cookieParser());

app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'public')));

app.use(session({

secret: '123456cat',

resave: false,

saveUninitialized: true,

cookie: { maxAge: 60000 }

}))

app.use(flash());

app.use(expressValidator());

app.use('/', indexRouter);

app.use('/auth', authRouter);

// catch 404 and forward to error handler

app.use(function(req, res, next) {

next(createError(404));

});

// error handler

app.use(function(err, req, res, next) {

// set locals, only providing error in development

res.locals.message = err.message;

res.locals.error = req.app.get('env') === 'development' ? err : {};

// render the error page

res.status(err.status || 500);

res.render('error');

});

module.exports = app;

Step 4: Create Route

In this step, you need to create one route file name auth.js inside the routes folder.

Then update the following routes into your routes/auth.js file:

var express = require('express');

var router = express.Router();

var connection = require('../lib/db');

//display login page

router.get('/', function(req, res, next){

// render to views/user/add.ejs

res.render('auth/login', {

title: 'Login',

email: '',

password: ''

})

})

//display login page

router.get('/login', function(req, res, next){

// render to views/user/add.ejs

res.render('auth/login', {

title: 'Login',

email: '',

password: ''

})

})

//authenticate user

router.post('/authentication', function(req, res, next) {

var email = req.body.email;

var password = req.body.password;

connection.query('SELECT * FROM accounts WHERE email = ? AND password = ?', [email, password], function(err, rows, fields) {

if(err) throw err

// if user not found

if (rows.length <= 0) {

req.flash('error', 'Please correct enter email and Password!')

res.redirect('/login')

}

else { // if user found

// render to views/user/edit.ejs template file

req.session.loggedin = true;

req.session.name = name;

res.redirect('/home');

}

})

})

//display home page

router.get('/home', function(req, res, next) {

if (req.session.loggedin) {

res.render('auth/home', {

title:"Dashboard",

name: req.session.name,

});

} else {

req.flash('success', 'Please login first!');

res.redirect('/login');

}

});

// Logout user

router.get('/logout', function (req, res) {

req.session.destroy();

req.flash('success', 'Login Again Here');

res.redirect('/login');

});

module.exports = router;

Step 5: Create views

In this step, you need to create one folder name Auth. So go to the views folder in your app and create the Auth folder.

Inside the Auth folder, you need to create two views file. The views file is the following:

->login.ejs

->home.ejs

Application-folder/viwes/auth/home.js

Now, open your login.ejs file and update the following code into your file:

<html>

<head>

<title><%= title %></title>

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.min.js"></script>

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.14.3/umd/popper.min.js"></script>

<script src="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.3/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.3/css/bootstrap.min.css">

</head>

<body>

<% if (messages.error) { %>

<p style="color:red"><%- messages.error %></p>

<% } %>

<% if (messages.success) { %>

<p style="color:green"><%- messages.success %></p>

<% } %>

<form action="/auth/authentication" method="post" name="form1">

<div class="form-group">

<label for="exampleInputEmail1">Email</label>

<input type="email" name="email" class="form-control" id="email" aria-describedby="emailHelp" placeholder="Enter email" value="">

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="exampleInputEmail1">Password</label>

<input type="password" name="password" class="form-control" id="password" aria-describedby="emailHelp" placeholder="*********" value="">

</div>

<input type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" value="Add">

</form>

</body>

</html>

This login.ejs file contains login form.

Application-folder/viwes/auth/home.js

Next, open your home.ejs file and update the following code into your file.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title><%= title %></title>

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.min.js"></script>

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.14.3/umd/popper.min.js"></script>

<script src="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.3/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.3/css/bootstrap.min.css">

</head>

<body>

<div class="container">

<% if (messages.error) { %>

<p style="color:red"><%- messages.error %></p>

<% } %>

<% if (messages.success) { %>

<p style="color:green"><%- messages.success %></p>

<% } %>

<div class="card">

<div class="card-header">

Dashboard <b><%= name %></b>

</div>

<div class="card-body">

<h5 class="card-title">Welcome</h5>

<p class="card-text">You have successfully login</p>

<a href="auth/logout" class="btn btn-primary">Logout</a>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</body>

</html>

Step 6: Run Development Server

You can use the following command to run development server:

//run the below command

npm start

after run this command open your browser and hit

http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth

OR

http://127.0.0.1:3000/auth/login
