I don't really have anything in mind about what to do today so it started off with me trying to figure out what I can do today.
After taking a look at the list of API endpoints that I have, I decided to continue the implementation of the forgot password feature.
Before I proceed, I think it's better for me to tell you what do I use for my backend code. Introducing
AdonisJs, a Laravel-like Nodejs framework.
With that said, there is a way on how to handle authentication with AdonisJs, which brought us to Adonis Persona.
The way Adonis Persona handles forgotPassword is they first require user's email to create a token, which then will be used to change the password. Simple enough.
But the challenge for me today is I can't get Adonis to send the email for of link with the token to the user. The issue was me not reading the documentation really. I was wrong about formatting the email template with edge.
And then I also realized that I was on the wrong path for the flow of resetting password. I was trying to create a form for the password reset in the email itself.
What I should do is to email them to a page for the password reset and insert the token to that page so that I can use the token and take the new password to send it to the updatePassword endpoint.
It was not a smooth day today but I'm glad because now I know what I want to do tomorrow.
Until then, thank you for reading.
