Any good video or tutorial on how to create a safe login for users?

I'm trying to create a user login and password using the MEAN stack. In the videos of the courses, we have seen how to implement that in the server side, but what's on the client side?

I found this tutorial for the client side part: http://jasonwatmore.com/post/2015/03/10/angularjs-user-registration-and-login-example-tutorial

With this and the code I have in: https://github.com/Maycas/th-td-fsjs-p12-capstone-TravelPinner, I can create the user, but when I go to the login part, it fails.

Moreover, I have an additional concert, which is that the password is sent through HTTP in clear text using POST. How this can be secure if someone can sniff my requests? Is there additional security that can be used?

By analyzing, for example, facebook, I see that they have the same problem, as they show in the POST request the user's data in the /login request.
