Logto: Open-source project to build sign-in, auth, and user identity within minutes

TL;DR

I asked myself – why should I code sign-in again? With this unsolved question in mind, I started building Logto with several developer friends about one year ago.

While we were exploring how could a better sign-in solution solve our own business problem, we found that the sign-in breakdowns get way more challenging than many people realize. The community we interact with daily is talking so much about how painful it is not to have a decent open-source solution. This is something we could offer our best effort into.

Self-help advice often encourages people to dream big. So our idea went bigger, too 😁. We want to build not just a customizable sign-in UI but also an identity solution.


Logto

I’ve heard of numerous projects that are solving similar problems. They are great. And here’s how we stand out. A few highlights of Logto:

πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» A frontend-to-backend identity solution.

  • A delightful sign-in experience for end-users and an OIDC-based identity service.

  • Multi-platform SDKs that can integrate your apps with Logto quickly.

Logto

🎨 Out-of-box technology and UI support for many things you needed to code before.

  • A centralized place to customize the user interface and then LIVE PREVIEW the changes you make.

Logto

  • Social sign-in for multiple platforms (GitHub, Google, WeChat, Alipay, etc.).

  • Dynamic passcode sign-in (via SMS or email).

Logto

πŸ’» Fully open-sourced, while no identity knowledge is required to use.

  • Super easy setup (less than 1 min via GitPod, not joking), step-by-step tutorials and decent docs.

  • A full-function web admin console to manage the users, identities, and other things you need within a few clicks.

We just launched the public beta of Logto! As always, I'd be incredibly grateful to hear your thoughts about Logto. I truly look forward to your participation in the discussion. Cheers!

(btw, Logto service is written in full Node.js+TypeScript)
