You’ve built a great app. Does its job, works well, code is simple, frontend only. Bit of JAMStack, maybe.

Wanna lock some pages to ask for login? Tough.

Complexity blows through the roof. Roll your own and you’re bound to get it wrong. Deal with JWT tokens, handle servers, store usernames and passwords … oof.

Auth providers solve the backend issue, but you still need to handle frontend state, deal with checking for credentials, make sure it’s all secure. It’s a lot of work.

I built useAuth to solve all that with a single hook.
