These days adding authentication to an application is very challenging, and you shouldn’t build it from scratch. As the centralized companies on the internet have already failed us in protecting user's privacy and data.
The user trust model of the internet is broken. Let's fix it one step at a time.
Hi 👋, in this guide you'll be learning how to add passwordless login to a Nuxt.js application using Magic Link.
Nuxt.js is a higher-level framework based on Vue.js to create production-ready modern web applications. Nuxt is inspired by Next.js, which is a framework of similar purpose, based on React.js.
Let’s start by creating our application using
npx make-magic --template nuxt
After a few seconds, you will be prompted for a project name, this will also be the name of the folder that will be created for this project.
After putting in a project name, you will be prompted for your Magic Publishable API Key, which enables user authentication with Magic.
To get your publishable API key, you'll need to sign up to Magic Dashboard. Once you've signed up, an app will be created upon your first login (you'll be able to create new apps later).
You'll now be able to see your Test Publishable API Key - copy and paste the key into your CLI prompt.
After hitting Enter, you'll be asked to select whether you’d like to use npm / yarn as the NPM client for your project.
After selecting your NPM client, the nuxt server will automatically start, and your application will be running on http://localhost:3000.
In this example app, you'll be prompted to sign up for a new account using an email address or login into an existing one. The authentication process is secured by Magic.
After clicking on your magic link email, you'll be successfully logged in, and redirected to the profile page that displays your email, issuer, and public address.
