A small wrapper around jsonwebtoken that adds promisified methods, as a regular promisifyAll is not going to work due to its strange callback format. This is a temporary fix - the next major release of jsonwebtoken should resolve the issue.

Synchronous errors are turned into rejected Promises, so that solves that issue as well. Keep in mind that in most modes of operation, jsonwebtoken operates synchronously to begin with - this module exists primarily to make its behaviour consistent.

Important: This module will mutate the instance of jsonwebtoken that it uses, as is necessary for promisification - however, it does not modify any existing methods, it only adds two methtods. As long as you do not attempt to separately promisify the jsonwebtoken module directly, this should not pose a problem.

var Promise = require("bluebird");
var jwt = require("jsonwebtoken-promisified");

Promise.try(function() {
	return jwt.signAsync({foo: "bar"}, "secretKey");
}).then(function(token) {
	console.log("Signed token:", token);


jwt.signAsync(payload, secretOrPrivateKey, [options])

Like jwt.sign, but returns a Promise. Documentation here.

jwt.verifyAsync(payload, secretOrPublicKey, options)

Like jwt.verify, but returns a Promise. Documentation here.






Like their jsonwebtoken counterparts.
