Changing Style via CSS

important

This is applicable to prebuilt UI only.

Updating the CSS allows you to change the UI of our components to meet your needs.

This section will guide you through an example of updating the look of buttons. Note that the process can be applied to update any HTML tag from within SuperTokens components.

Global style changes#

How to make changes#

Check here to see how you can find the selector to overwrite.

Each stylable components contains data-supertokens attributes (in our example data-supertokens="link").

Let's add a border to our link elements. The syntax for styling is plain CSS.

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailVerification from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailverification";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "..."    },    recipeList: [        EmailVerification.init({            style: `                [data-supertokens~=link] {                    border: 2px solid #0076ff;                    border-radius: 5;                    width: 30%;                    margin: 0 auto;                }            `,        }),        Session.init()    ]});

The above will result in:

Prebuilt form with custom submit button

Changing fonts#

By default, SuperTokens loads and uses the 'Rubik' font. The best way to override this is to add a font-family styling to the container component in the recipe configuration. Adding font-family or font to the styles will disable the default font loading.

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailVerification from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailverification";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "..."    },    recipeList: [        EmailVerification.init({            style: `                [data-supertokens~=container] {                    font-family: cursive                }            `        }),        Session.init()    ]});

Using media queries#

You may want to have different CSS for different viewports. This can be achieved via media queries like this:

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailVerification from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailverification";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "...",    },    recipeList: [        // ...        EmailVerification.init({            // ...            style: `                [data-supertokens~=link] {                    border: 2px solid #0076ff;                    borderRadius: 5;                    width: 30%;                    margin: 0 auto;                }
                @media (max-width: 440px) {                    [data-supertokens~=link] {                        width: 90%;                    }                }            `,        }),    ],});

Customising individual screens#

Send email screen#

This is screen is where the user is redirected if mode is set to REQUIRED and they visit a path that requires a verified email.

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailVerification from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailverification";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "...",    },    recipeList: [        EmailVerification.init({            sendVerifyEmailScreen: {                style: ` ... `            }        }),        Session.init()    ]});

Verify link clicked screen#

This is the screen shown to users that click the email verification link in the email.

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";import EmailVerification from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/emailverification";import Session from "supertokens-auth-react/recipe/session";
SuperTokens.init({    appInfo: {        apiDomain: "...",        appName: "...",        websiteDomain: "...",    },    recipeList: [        EmailVerification.init({            verifyEmailLinkClickedScreen: {                style: ` ... `,            }        }),         Session.init()    ]});
