How to use

Use the override config#

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-node";
import Passwordless from "supertokens-node/recipe/passwordless";

appInfo: {
apiDomain: "...",
appName: "...",
websiteDomain: "..."
recipeList: [
contactMethod: "EMAIL", // This example will work with any contactMethod
flowType: "USER_INPUT_CODE_AND_MAGIC_LINK", // This example will work with any flow.

override: {
functions: (originalImplementation) => {
return {

// here we are only overriding the function that's responsible
// for signing in / up a user.
consumeCode: async function (input) {
// TODO: some custom logic

// or call the default behaviour as show below
return await originalImplementation.consumeCode(input);
// ...
// TODO: override more functions
  • originalImplementation is an object that contain functions that have the original implementation for this recipe. They can be used in your functions as a way to use the SuperTokens' default behaviour.
  • In the above code snippet, we override the consumeCode function of this recipe. This function will be used to handle the scenario when the user enters an OTP or clicks on a magic link.
