Why run Supertokens in Docker Desktop?

Docker Extensions help you build and integrate software applications into your daily workflows. With the SuperTokens extension, you get a simple way to quickly deploy Supertokens.

SuperTokens is an open-source authentication solution. It provides an end-to-end solution to easily implement the following features:

  • Support for popular login methods:
    • Email/password
    • Passwordless (OTP or magic link based)
    • Social login through OAuth 2.0
  • Role-based access control
  • Session management
  • User management
  • Option to self-host the SuperTokens core or use the managed service

SDKs are available for all popular languages and front-end frameworks such as Node.js, React.js, Reactive Native, Vanilla JS, and more

Once the extension is installed and started, you’ll have a running Supertokens core application. The extension allows you to connect to your preferred database, set the environment variable, and get your core connected to your backend.

The SuperTokens extension speeds up the process of getting started with SuperTokens and, over time, we hope to make it the best place to manage the SuperTokens core.
