Changing Colours

It is possible to update the default theme with your colours to make it fit perfectly with your website by defining a few css variables in the style property to the ThirdParty.init call. You have to specify the colors as RGB (see the following example), because we use the rgb and rgba functions to apply them.

For example if your website uses a dark theme, here is how you can quickly customize it:

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import ThirdParty from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/thirdparty";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "..."    },    recipeList: [        ThirdParty.init({            style: `                [data-supertokens~=container] {                    --palette-background: 51, 51, 51;                    --palette-inputBackground: 41, 41, 41;                    --palette-inputBorder: 41, 41, 41;                    --palette-textTitle: 255, 255, 255;                    --palette-textLabel: 255, 255, 255;                    --palette-textPrimary: 255, 255, 255;                    --palette-error: 173, 46, 46;                    --palette-textInput: 169, 169, 169;                    --palette-textLink: 169, 169, 169;                }            `        }),        Session.init()    ]});
