re: Authentication with React.js VIEW POST

TOP OF THREAD FULL DISCUSSION
re: I agree. I would suggest using Auth0. They have a good example on the Auth0 website.
 

We would not save the user credentials in the browser local storage, but rather just the token received after authentication. As I said, the tutorial do not cover the backend portion of it but rather saving the token and blocking access to "authenticated" routes. You could use it to implement Auth0, which could actually be a nice continuation of my tutorial! :)

EDIT: I agree my article does not emphasize this enough. I updated the article to add a disclaimer to save the token and not the actual credentials. Thank you!

Hi, firstly it's a great article. Implementing the back end token code was beyond the scope in my opinion. What it demonstrates is exactly what you said in your reply. And the private route implementation is good as well.
