How to use

Use the override config#

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";
import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";

appInfo: {
apiDomain: "...",
appName: "...",
websiteDomain: "..."
recipeList: [
override: {
functions: (originalImplementation) => {
return {

// we will only be overriding the function for checking
// if a session exists
doesSessionExist: async function (input) {
// TODO: some custom logic

// or call the default behaviour as show below
return originalImplementation.doesSessionExist(input);
  • originalImplementation is an object that contains functions that has the original implementation for this recipe. It can be used in your functions as a way to use the SuperTokens' default behaviour.
  • In the above code snippet, we override the doesSessionExist function of this recipe. This means that when another recipe is using this recipe to check if a session exists, it will use your function.
