    JavaScript client for the auth-service


    $ npm i decentraland-auth


    Create an Auth instance, login and then get access tokens whenever you need them

    import { Auth } from 'decentraland-auth'
    const auth = new Auth()
    const userToken = await auth.login() // prompts the user to login
    const accessToken = await auth.getAccessToken() // returns a valid access token
    const { user_id } = await auth.getAccessTokenData() // returns access token payload data

    Send signed request

    const auth = new Auth()
    await auth.login()
    // GET
    const request = await auth.createRequest(
    const response = await fetch(request)
    // POST
    const request = await auth.createRequest(
        method: 'post',
        headers: {
          'Some-Header': 'bla bla'
        body: JSON.stringify({ param: 'asdf' })
    const response = await fetch(request)

    Generate credentials for message

    const auth = new Auth()
    const userToken = await auth.login()
    const msg = 'hi there!' // it could also be a null
    const credentials = await auth.getMessageCredentials(msg)

    This library makes use of Buffer, which is not present natively in the browser. There's a polyfill that is included by default by some bundlers (like webpack), but if you don't have it make sure to add it to your project: Buffer.


    • new Auth([options]): Returns a new instance of Auth. It takes an optional options objects that can contain the following properties:

      • ephemeralKeyTTL: Time to live for the ephemeral key (in seconds). Default value is 60 * 60 * 2 (2 hours).

      • api: An object with options for the underlying API instance:

        • baseURL: The base url of the auth-service. Default value is

        • loginCallback: The login callback url. It defaults to /callback.

        • logoutCallback: The logout callback url. It defaults to /.

    • auth.login([target]): Returns a promise that will resolve once the user is logged in. The first time it's called it will prompt the user to login though a Popup. If a target dom node is provided, instead of a Popup it will insert an iframe inside the target node and use that. If the user closes the Popup the promise will reject. If the user session is still active this method might resolve without having to open a popup.

    • auth.isLoggedIn(): Returns a boolean telling wheter the user is logged in or not.

    • auth.getAccessToken(): It returns a promise that resolves to an access token. This access token has a short life so it is recommended to get a new token every time you need to use is instead of storing it.

    • auth.getAccessTokenData(): It returns a promise that resolves to the payload of the access token (basically the decoded JWT).

    • auth.logout(): It returns a promise that resolves once the user is logged out. After using this, the next time the login() method is called it will prompt the user with the login flow.

    • auth.createRequest(url, options?): It returns a promise that resolves to a Request object that can be used with fetch. It takes a URL and the same options as fetch.

    • auth.createHeaders(url, options?): It returns a promise that resolves to an object containing the mandatory headers to be used in a signed request. It takes a URL and the same options as fetch.

    • auth.getUserToken(): It returns a promise that resolves to the userToken. This token is the one used to generate the accessToken(s).

    • auth.getEphemeralKey(): Returns the instance of the ephemeral key.

    • auth.dispose(): It removes all the bindings on this instance. It does NOT perform a logout.
