danielpowell4 / starterAuth.js
Last active Jul 6, 2018
react-router and several other demos offer up a "fakeAuth". This is a starterAuth that sends an email and password to an external API and then stores the returned auth_token JWT in localStorage. Main benefit of doing so is to persist login between page refreshes.
View starterAuth.js
import fetch from "cross-fetch";
const apiUrl = "//localhost:5000"; // or where ever your api lives!
const checkStatus = response => {
if (response.status >= 200 && response.status < 300) {
return response;
const error = new Error(`${response.statusText}`);
error.status = response.statusText;
error.response = response;
