Guardian vs Satellizer: What are the differences?
Guardian: Remove the OAuth dance with one request. Avoid dealing with OAuth logic in your code, and spend more time creating your product. Guardian reduces the OAuth footprint in your code to a single request. Built with modularity in mind, Guardian leverages plugins to handle OAuth flows, should you encounter a flow that Guardian doesn't handle, create a small flow plugin to do so and carry on. Guardian comes with 5 pre-made plugins that cover 99% of OAuth services; Satellizer: Token-based AngularJS Authentication. Satellizer is a simple to use, end-to-end, token-based authentication module for AngularJS with built-in support for Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter authentication providers, plus Email and Password sign-in method. You are not limited to the sign-in options above, in fact you can add any OAuth 1.0 or OAuth 2.0 provider by passing provider-specific information during the configuration step.

What tools integrate with Guardian?
Great for building Node + Angular authentication workflows. Passport is great, but doesn't have the Angular client-side authentication support, so Satellizer is a better fit.
