The Sign Up Page

The sign up page, that is served in the app controller, makes a request POST /signup when the button Create an account is pressed.

Create a new controller to handle this route.

foal generate controller signup --register

Open the new file and replace its content.

// 3pimport { Context, dependency, HttpResponseRedirect, Post, setSessionCookie, ValidateBody } from '@foal/core';import { isCommon } from '@foal/password';import { TypeORMStore } from '@foal/typeorm';import { getRepository } from 'typeorm';
// Appimport { User } from '../entities';
export class SignupController {  @dependency  store: TypeORMStore;
  @Post()  @ValidateBody({    additionalProperties: false,    properties: {      email: { type: 'string', format: 'email' },      password: { type: 'string' }    },    required: [ 'email', 'password' ],    type: 'object',  })  async signup(ctx: Context) {    // Check that the password is not too common.    if (await isCommon(ctx.request.body.password)) {      return new HttpResponseRedirect('/signup?password_too_common=true');    }
    // Check that no user has already signed up with this email.    let user = await getRepository(User).findOne({ email: });    if (user) {      return new HttpResponseRedirect('/signup?email_already_taken=true');    }
    // Create the user.    user = new User(); =;    await user.setPassword(ctx.request.body.password);    await getRepository(User).save(user);
    // Create the user session.    const session = await;
    // Redirect the user to her/his to-do list.    const response = new HttpResponseRedirect('/');    // Save the session token in a cookie in order to authenticate    // the user in future requests.    setSessionCookie(response, session.getToken());    return response;  }

You can now create new users with the signup page.
