About frontend functions override

This feature allows you to change the behaviour of a recipe on the frontend by allowing you to override the functions used by the UI components for actions such as:

  • Sign in / up
  • Saving a session
  • Signing out
  • And more...

An example#

  • If a recipe wants to check if a session exists, it will call the session recipe's doesSessionExist function.
  • In the default implementation of the session recipe, we check this via a token stored in the localstorage (this is not an access token).
  • However, if you implement your own session management, you can override this function on the frontend to work with your solution, and all the other recipes that use this function, will continue to work as expected.
