Here i'm trying to return value from bcrypt.compare, nested inside a function.
I want to get the result value (true or false).
Im using coffeescript. Here is the code:
comparePasswordWithHash = (pass, hash) ->
return bcrypt.compare pass, hash, (err, result) ->
console.log comparePasswordWithHash "bacon", hashedPassword # Should print true/false
bcrypt.compare() is asynchronous. This means that it is not returning anything, but instead calls the callback you pass to it. There is also a sync version of
My coffeescript is a little rusty, but I think you would end up with something like this using the promise:
comparePasswordWithHash = (pass, hash) -> bcrypt.compare pass, hash comparePasswordWithHash "bacon", hashedPassword .then (response) -> console.log response .catch (error) -> console.log error
