Overview steps

Integrating SuperTokens with a Next.js app involves:

  • Calling the frontend and backend init functions
  • Adding a website page to display the auth related widgets (on /auth by default)
  • Creating a serverless function to expose the auth related APIs which will be consumed by the frontend widgets (on /api/auth/ by default)
  • Protecting website routes: Displaying them only when a user is logged in, else redirecting them to the login page
  • Performing session verification:
    • In your APIs
    • In getServerSideProps
