NextAuth developer experience

Published on February 13, 2021

← Back to tips

When I was building the initial OpenPerf, stumbled upon multiple ways of doing authentication.

But since I was using next.js on the frontend, the more obvious choice was to give NextAuth(@nextauthjs) a try.

Here is what happened:

Next Auth

1/ I was able to set up the whole thing in just a few minutes

2/ Focus more on the features of the app

3/ Quickly add more OAuth provides with just config changes


All of these translate to a fantastic developer experience!

👏🏻 Kudos to @iaincollins and other developers who are actively working on this. We need more of such libraries!
