Conveying the idea of storing passwords in a db looks rather good, but I noticed (at least in the source code), you're not hashing the user's password.

For a productive environment, you might want to consider storing a password hash rather than the raw text in a db. There are plenty of libs to do so, one of which is called bcrypt npmjs.com/package/bcrypt

In this case, there is no need for third-part libraries as there is native node module: nodejs.org/api/crypto.html
