Solid JavaScript authentication for the browser - solid-client-authn-browser

solid-client-authn-browser is a library designed to authenticate web apps (in the browser) with Solid identity servers. The main documentation is at the root of the repository.

Required polyfills

Our JavaScript Client Libraries use relatively modern JavaScript features that will work in all commonly used browsers, except Internet Explorer. Additionally, @inrupt/solid-client-authn-browser currently expects the Node.js events module. Webpack versions before version 5 used to add a polyfill for that by default; if you do not use Webpack, or use version 5 or later, please install the events npm package as well.

Underlying libraries

solid-client-authn-browser is based on oidc-client-js, forked in @inrupt/oidc-client after the original library stopped being supported. However, the latter lacks some features that are necessary to provide the developer experience we specifically want for the Solid ecosystem, so we developed oidc-client-ext to add these features.

Other Inrupt Solid JavaScript Libraries

@inrupt/solid-client-authn-browseris part of a family open source JavaScript libraries designed to support developers building Solid applications.
