A Google OAuth Component for React that supports multiple instances

Developed in Selectom.


yarn add react-google-authorize

Why yet another React Google oauth component?

All existing React Google oauth components (e.g. react-google-login, which is the basis of this library, and also react-google-login-component, react-google-oauth and react-social-login) use the gapi.auth2.init method for handling the authentication and authorization process, which has the limitation of only supporting one button in the document at a time.

We needed to support multiple authorization buttons, potentially for different Google user accounts, so we implemented this control to use the gapi.auth2.authorize method instead. This means that you don't get a GoogleUser object to play with, but you can request authorization from different users at the same time.

How to use

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import GoogleAuthorize from 'react-google-authorize';
// or
import { GoogleAuthorize } from 'react-google-authorize';
const responseGoogle = (response) => {


params value default value description
clientId string REQUIRED
hostedDomain string -
scope string profile email
responseType string permission Can be either space-delimited 'id_token', to retrieve an ID Token + 'permission' (or 'token'), to retrieve an Access Token, or 'code', to retrieve an Authorization Code.
onSuccess function REQUIRED
onFailure function REQUIRED
onRequest function -
buttonText string Login with Google
className string -
style object -
disabledStyle object -
loginHint string -
prompt string -
tag string button sets element tag (div, a, span, etc
type string button sets button type (submit
fetchBasicProfile boolean true
disabled boolean false
discoveryDocs -
uxMode string popup The UX mode to use for the sign-in flow. Valid values are popup and redirect.
redirectUri string - If using ux_mode='redirect', this parameter allows you to override the default redirect_uri that will be used at the end of the consent flow. The default redirect_uri is the current URL stripped of query parameters and hash fragment.
isSignedIn boolean false If true will return GoogleUser object on load, if user has given your app permission
render function - Render prop to use a custom element, use renderProps.onClick

Google Scopes List:

onSuccess callback

Argument to the callback with be the AuthorizeResponse object.

If you use the hostedDomain param, make sure to validate the id_token (a JSON web token) returned by Google on your backend server:

  1. In the responseGoogle(response) {...} callback function, you should get back a standard JWT located at response.hg.id_token
  2. Send this token to your server (preferably as an Authorization header)
  3. Have your server decode the id_token by using a common JWT library such as jwt-simple or by sending a GET request to
  4. The returned decoded token should have an hd key equal to the hosted domain you'd like to restrict to.

You can also pass child components such as icons into the button component.

    <span> Login with Google</span>

onFailure callback

onFailure callback is called when either initialization or a authorization attempt fails. Argument is an error object.

Common error codes include:

error code description
idpiframe_initialization_failed initialization of the Google Auth API failed (this will occur if a client doesn't have third party cookies enabled)
popup_closed_by_user The user closed the popup before finishing the sign in flow.
access_denied The user denied the permission to the scopes required
immediate_failed No user could be automatically selected without prompting the consent flow.

More details can be found in the official Google docs:

Using a custom element

If you prefer, you can use your own custom JSX/React component instead of the default authorization button.

Just make sure to bind the renderProps.onClick as your component prop onClick listener, in other that to call the properly authorization function like the example below:

    render={(renderProps) => {
      return (
          My custom element
