You can create an invite-based flow, but you'll have to do some custom work with our libraries.
You'll need to work with the Stormpath Client and Stormpath Application directly, these are provided by the Stormpath Node SDK. Inside of your Express middleware, retrieve the client with:
var stormpathClient = req.app.get('stormpathClient')
and the application with:
var stormpathApplication = req.app.get('stormpathApplication`)
On the application, use stormpathApplication.createAccount() to create the user. When you pass the new account data, set the password to something that is very long, random, and un-guessable. If your Stormpath directory has email verification enabled, the user will get an invite email. That email should link them into your Angular application, to a custom view which will read the email verification token from the URL and post it to a custom middleware on your server. This middleware will need to use stormpathClient.verifyAccountEmail() to verify the token.
Then you can collect a new password for the user, and save it by setting req.user.password='new password', then calling req.user.save().
Hope this helps! I work at Stormpath and I am a maintainer of these libraries :)
