Auth UI

To make using authentication in your app as easy as possible, Wasp generates the server-side code but also the client-side UI for you. It enables you to quickly get the login, signup, password reset and email verification flows in your app.

Below we cover all of the available UI components and how to use them.

Auth UI

Overview

After Wasp generates the UI components for your auth, you can use it as is, or customize it to your liking.

Based on the authentication providers you enabled in your main.wasp file, the Auth UI will show the corresponding UI (form and buttons). For example, if you enabled e-mail authentication:

main.wasp
app MyApp {
//...
auth: {
methods: {
email: {},
},
// ...
}
}

You'll get the following UI:

And then if you enable Google and Github:

main.wasp
app MyApp {
//...
auth: {
methods: {
email: {},
google: {},
github: {},
},
// ...
}
}

The form will automatically update to look like this:

Let's go through all of the available components and how to use them.

Auth Components

The following components are available for you to use in your app:

Login Form

Used with Username & Password, Email, Github, Google and Keycloak authentication.

Login form

You can use the LoginForm component to build your login page:

main.wasp
// ...

route LoginRoute { path: "/login", to: LoginPage }
page LoginPage {
component: import { LoginPage } from "@src/LoginPage.jsx"
}
src/LoginPage.jsx
import { LoginForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

// Use it like this
export function LoginPage() {
return <LoginForm />
}

It will automatically show the correct authentication providers based on your main.wasp file.

Signup Form

Used with Username & Password, Email, Github, Google and Keycloak authentication.

Signup form

You can use the SignupForm component to build your signup page:

main.wasp
// ...

route SignupRoute { path: "/signup", to: SignupPage }
page SignupPage {
component: import { SignupPage } from "@src/SignupPage.jsx"
}
src/SignupPage.jsx
import { SignupForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

// Use it like this
export function SignupPage() {
return <SignupForm />
}

It will automatically show the correct authentication providers based on your main.wasp file.

Read more about customizing the signup process like adding additional fields or extra UI in the Auth Overview section.

Forgot Password Form

Used with Email authentication.

If users forget their password, they can use this form to reset it.

Forgot password form

You can use the ForgotPasswordForm component to build your own forgot password page:

main.wasp
// ...

route RequestPasswordResetRoute { path: "/request-password-reset", to: RequestPasswordResetPage }
page RequestPasswordResetPage {
component: import { ForgotPasswordPage } from "@src/ForgotPasswordPage.jsx"
}
src/ForgotPasswordPage.jsx
import { ForgotPasswordForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

// Use it like this
export function ForgotPasswordPage() {
return <ForgotPasswordForm />
}

Reset Password Form

Used with Email authentication.

After users click on the link in the email they receive after submitting the forgot password form, they will be redirected to this form where they can reset their password.

Reset password form

You can use the ResetPasswordForm component to build your reset password page:

main.wasp
// ...

route PasswordResetRoute { path: "/password-reset", to: PasswordResetPage }
page PasswordResetPage {
component: import { ResetPasswordPage } from "@src/ResetPasswordPage.jsx"
}
src/ResetPasswordPage.jsx
import { ResetPasswordForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

// Use it like this
export function ResetPasswordPage() {
return <ResetPasswordForm />
}

Verify Email Form

Used with Email authentication.

After users sign up, they will receive an email with a link to this form where they can verify their email.

Verify email form

You can use the VerifyEmailForm component to build your email verification page:

main.wasp
// ...

route EmailVerificationRoute { path: "/email-verification", to: EmailVerificationPage }
page EmailVerificationPage {
component: import { VerifyEmailPage } from "@src/VerifyEmailPage.jsx"
}
src/VerifyEmailPage.jsx
import { VerifyEmailForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

// Use it like this
export function VerifyEmailPage() {
return <VerifyEmailForm />
}

Customization 💅🏻

You customize all of the available forms by passing props to them.

Props you can pass to all of the forms:

  1. appearance - customize the form colors (via design tokens)
  2. logo - path to your logo
  3. socialLayout - layout of the social buttons, which can be vertical or horizontal

1. Customizing the Colors

We use Stitches to style the Auth UI. You can customize the styles by overriding the default theme tokens.

List of all available tokens

See the list of all available tokens which you can override.

src/appearance.js
export const authAppearance = {
colors: {
brand: '#5969b8', // blue
brandAccent: '#de5998', // pink
submitButtonText: 'white',
},
}
src/LoginPage.jsx
import { LoginForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'
import { authAppearance } from './appearance'

export function LoginPage() {
return (
<LoginForm
// Pass the appearance object to the form
appearance={authAppearance}
/>
)
}

We recommend defining your appearance in a separate file and importing it into your components.

You can add your logo to the Auth UI by passing the logo prop to any of the components.

src/LoginPage.jsx
import { LoginForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'
import Logo from './logo.png'

export function LoginPage() {
return (
<LoginForm
// Pass in the path to your logo
logo={Logo}
/>
)
}

3. Social Buttons Layout

You can change the layout of the social buttons by passing the socialLayout prop to any of the components. It can be either vertical or horizontal (default).

If we pass in vertical:

src/LoginPage.jsx
import { LoginForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

export function LoginPage() {
return (
<LoginForm
// Pass in the socialLayout prop
socialLayout="vertical"
/>
)
}

We get this:

Vertical social buttons

Let's Put Everything Together 🪄

If we provide the logo and custom colors:

src/appearance.js
export const appearance = {
colors: {
brand: '#5969b8', // blue
brandAccent: '#de5998', // pink
submitButtonText: 'white',
},
}
src/LoginPage.jsx
import { LoginForm } from 'wasp/client/auth'

import { authAppearance } from './appearance'
import todoLogo from './todoLogo.png'

export function LoginPage() {
return <LoginForm appearance={appearance} logo={todoLogo} />
}

We get a form looking like this:
