Hello! Great to be here. I am trying to understand -- wondering if Supertokens is only an auth backend? I see this: https://supertokens.com/docs/userdashboard/about but don't really get how that would work Can anyone point me in the right direction to where I can understand how everything would fit together?
r
hey @RicardoViteri we provide the frontend and backend. You want to start from our guides page and pick a login method you want: https://supertokens.com/docs/guides From there on, you want to follow the getting started section.

Hi @rp I signed up to the SaaS hosted version, wondering if I need a local development environment to access a users' dashboard?
r
you do
the dashboard is served via the backend SDK setup
r
ah okay
interesting
wondering then, if it could run in something like Cloudflare Pages
r
we don't support cloudflare workers yet cause their node env doesn't have all the features in node (im not sure if these two are related though)
r
Yes, you are right, then don't have a full node implementation.
Pages is built on top of workers
r
right. So i don't think we support that
r
We actually really like Pages, seems easy and convenient, low cold starts
r
fair enough
r
Okay, I think I get it, so we would implement the Front and Back End, and the core service is the hosted service?
r
yes. Correct
r
what option should I select if my framework is not listed?

select react
once the demo app is generated, you can just pick up the backend stuff
and build your own UI following our guides
r
alright
great!
