Open Source Package
gotrue-js under the hood, this library is written entirely in async hooks-based React and interfaces directly with the GoTrue service that runs Netlify Identity.
One of the stronger points of this library is its innate ability to keep a user’s JWT fresh (refreshed / unexpired) without any management by the consuming application.
react-netlify-identity-gotrue ensures that the user’s JWT is always available for authorized calls and checks. It even includes an
authorizedFetch() function out-of-the-box for making just such calls. This makes working with Functions, which become super powerful when Netlify Identity is activated on a site, that much easier.
Feel free to check out the demo application, a fully-integrated Gatsby app that displays the depth of ability from
react-netlify-identity-gotrue — email-based workflows fully implemented, private routing included, and
authorizedFetch()’s to boot!
