Not so fast.

Logins have NOTHING to do with HTTPS so I can't guess why you listed that. As to JS, there's a lot of bad code out there so if you want to check your code, I like JSLINT https://www.sitepoint.com/using-jslint-to-refine-your-code/

But the login system itself may use some SQL backend, PHP or even be some plug in where you offer Facebook (just don't) or a Google login.

As to efficient, how do you measure that?

I meant the easiest method.

My answer is to you as a web developer.

That it's your web site you want to add a login system to. Autologging in, that's covered in so many priors so I read your question and when you noted HTTPS, JavaScript and such I had to guess you wanted to talk about how to implement logins on your web site.

If you want to log in automatically, there are so many priors that I would just google that.

But back to code and your web site. The easiest varies with the hosting you use. Without knowing what your host provides I can't tell you what would be easiest. I know that many won't sign up if you use a Facebook login.
