React/TypeScript: App Code Samples


What is React?

React is a JavaScript library that developers can use to build interactive user interfaces. According to Snyk, React offers default cross-site scripting (XSS) with data binding. Snyk offers additional guidance on how developers can use React built-in features and defensive programming practices to harden their React applications. However, React doesn't provide application-level security, such as authentication and authorization.

You can integrate the Auth0 Identity Platform with React to implement user authentication quickly. Auth0 helps you deliver a balance between security, privacy, and convenience to your users. Auth0 handles over 4.5 billion monthly average transactions. That's only possible because Auth0 is committed to solving complex identity problems by empowering developers with tools that meet their unique security needs and requirements. Please allow us to show you how Auth0 makes identity and security work for you by exploring the React code samples below.

Why Use TypeScript with React?

TypeScript is a strongly typed programming language that builds on JavaScript. Using TypeScript with React gives you access to optional static type-checking along with robust tooling and the latest ECMAScript features. TypeScript can help developers build faster and more safely by helping them find bugs early in the development process. Support for TypeScript has grown exponentially in the past years across libraries and frameworks, making this one of the fastest-growing programming languages.
