Hi, here's the official OAuth 2.0 Getting Started guide for the Javascript library: https://github.com/andreassolberg/jso/blob/master/README-getting-started.md

I would also recommend considering using a service like Auth0 that has a lot of doucmentation and easily supports different protocols, and many sign-in services out of the box: https://auth0.com/docs/protocols
