Once this is done, you can skip Step (1) and (2) in this section (see left nav bar) and move directly to setting up the SuperTokens core (Step 3).

Or, you can manually integrate SuperTokens by following the steps below.

Manual setup steps below

npm i -s supertokens-auth-react

2) Call the init function#

In your App.js file, import SuperTokens and call the init function

import React from 'react';
import SuperTokens, { SuperTokensWrapper } from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailPassword from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailpassword";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        // learn more about this on https://supertokens.com/docs/emailpassword/appinfo        appName: "<YOUR_APP_NAME>",        apiDomain: "<YOUR_API_DOMAIN>",        websiteDomain: "<YOUR_WEBSITE_DOMAIN>",        apiBasePath: "/auth",        websiteBasePath: "/auth",    },    recipeList: [        EmailPassword.init(),        Session.init()    ]});

/* Your App */class App extends React.Component {    render() {        return (            <SuperTokensWrapper>                {/*Your app components*/}            </SuperTokensWrapper>        );    }}
