Auth for Front End Web Apps
OAuth with PKCE
Hey there, happy Monday! I wrote another thing. (I’m Tania, btw).
If you ever have to write an authentication/authorization system for a front end web app or mobile app, you might come across PKCE. It’s one of the more modern auth flows, and the one that’s suitable for web apps that don’t come with a server.
Not the most exciting topic for first thing on a Monday morning (or maybe Monday afternoon, depending on where you are), but the process is a little confusing the first time so it’s good to be aware of how it works if you ever have to implement it.
That’s all for today, I’m just going through my backlog of things I’ve wanted to write and trying to get it all down. The next things I want to write about are:
Testing with React
Architecture of a React app
Creating a form system (Formik)
Have a good week!
