Code Syntax Highlighting


Note: It's necessary to use curly brace tags instead of backticks when code samples mess up the Jekyll blog engine formatting:


{{use raw tag when curly braces are present}}

<link rel="stylesheet" src="or when external stylesheets are called, such as CDN Bootstrap">

Important Note: Make sure this is updated to reflect the appropriate application type, allowed callback settings, and API identifier when pasting into a post.

Sign Up for Auth0

You'll need an Auth0 account to manage authentication. You can sign up for a free account here. Next, set up an Auth0 Client and API so Auth0 can interface with your app and API.

Set Up a Client App

  1. Go to your Auth0 Dashboard and click the "create a new client" button.
  2. Name your new app, select "Single Page Web Applications", and click the "Create" button.
  3. In the Settings for your new Auth0 client app, add http://localhost:[PORT]/callback to the Allowed Callback URLs.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Settings section and click "Show Advanced Settings". Choose the OAuth tab and verify that the JsonWebToken Signature Algorithm is set to RS256.
  5. Click the "Save Changes" button.
  6. If you'd like, you can set up some social connections. You can then enable them for your app in the Client options under the Connections tab. The example shown in the screenshot above utilizes username/password database, Facebook, Google, and Twitter.

Set Up an API

Go to APIs in your dashboard and click on the "Create API" button. Enter a name for the API. Set the Identifier to your API endpoint URL. In this example, this is http://localhost:[PORT]/api/. The Signing Algorithm should be RS256.
