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.
Prior to Webpack version 5 these modules were polyfilled by default, but that is no longer the case. See our Webpack configuration for packages that can provide the necessary polyfills.
solid-client-authn-browser is based on
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.
Data access and permissions management - solid-client
@inrupt/solid-client allows developers to access data and manage permissions on data stored in Solid Pods.
Authentication - solid-client-authn
@inrupt/solid-client-authn allows developers to authenticate against a Solid server. This is necessary when the resources on your Pod are not public.
Vocabularies and interoperability - solid-common-vocab-rdf
@inrupt/solid-common-vocab-rdf allows developers to build interoperable apps by reusing well-known vocabularies. These libraries provide vocabulary terms as constants that you just have to import.
