@farcaster/auth-kit

A React library that makes it easy to add Sign In With Farcaster to your application.

Getting Started

Installation

Install AuthKit and its peer dependency viem.

npm install @farcaster/auth-kit viem

Note: AuthKit is a React library. If you're using another frontend framework, take a look at the @farcaster/auth-client library instead.

Import

Import styles and functions.

import "@farcaster/auth-kit/styles.css";
import { AuthKitProvider } from "@farcaster/auth-kit";

Add Provider

Wrap your application with AuthKitProvider.

const config = {
  // For a production app, replace this with an Optimism Mainnet
  // RPC URL from a provider like Alchemy or Infura.
  rpcUrl: "https://mainnet.optimism.io",
  domain: "example.com",
  siweUri: "https://example.com/login",
};

const App = () => {
  return <AuthKitProvider config={config}>{/* Your App */}</AuthKitProvider>;
};

Add the sign in button

Then, in your app, import and render the SignInButton component.

import { SignInButton } from "@farcaster/auth-kit";

export const SignIn = ({ nonce }: { nonce: string }) => {
  return <SignInButton nonce={nonce} />;
};

A Sign in with Farcaster button will be rendered. When the user clicks it they will be prompted to complete sign in using their Farcaster wallet application. Once they complete sign in a signed message will be returned to your callback.

Examples

You can find official examples here.

Troubleshooting

Projects using Create React App (CRA) may run into TypeScript version conflicts, as react-scripts@5.0.1 expects a peer dependency of TypeScript version ^3.2.1 || ^4, while both viem and AuthKit require >=5.0.4.

To resolve this issue:

  • Install the latest version of TypeScript: npm i typescript -D
  • Add an override for react-scripts to your package.json file, to remove the version ceiling:
"overrides": {
  "react-scripts": {
    "typescript": ">3.2.1"
  }
}

Note: Always be careful with overrides and ensure they are compatible with the packages using them.

Components

AuthKitProvider

Wrap your application in an AuthKitProvider to use Farcaster Auth.

const config = {
  domain: "example.com",
  siweUri: "https://example.com/login",
  rpcUrl: "https://mainnet.optimism.io",
  relay: "https://relay.farcaster.xyz",
};

const App = () => {
  return <AuthKitProvider config={config}>{/* Your App */}</AuthKitProvider>;
};

  return (
    <SignInButton
      nonce={nonce}

timeout number No Relay server timeout in ms. 300000 (5 minutes)
interval number No Relay server polling interval in ms. 1500 (1.5 seconds)
nonce string No Random nonce to include in the Sign In With Farcaster message. None
notBefore string No Time when the SIWF message becomes valid. ISO 8601 datetime string. None
expirationTime string No Time when the SIWF message expires. ISO 8601 datetime string. None
requestId string No An optional system specific ID to include in the SIWF message. None
onSuccess (res: UseSignInData) => void No Callback invoked when sign in is complete and the user is authenticated. None

function App() {
  const {
    signIn,
    url
    data: { username },
    onSuccess: ({ fid }) => console.log("Your fid:", fid);
  } = useSignIn();

  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={signIn}>Sign In</button>
      {qrCodeUri && (
        <span>
          Scan this: <QRCode uri={url} />
        </span>
      )}
      {username && `Hello, ${username}!`}
    </div>
