Hi! So, I understand how one would integrate SuperTokens with code that one is building, but is there any way to use it to secure a proxy environment or docker-based self-hosted (but pre-built) apps? Just trying to wrap my head around everything. love the project.
r
im not sure I quite understand the question.
b
so basically I have a homeserver running a bunch of docker apps, such as home assistant and the like, hosted on my domain. I'm wondering if I can use SuperTokens to set up a custom auth page for these services.
r
If theses services are interacted with via a website, then yes.
b
okay, and just to make sure I understand, it wouldn't replace any of the existent authentication methods in these apps, it would happen before it, correct? i would basically code up a custom forwarding page or something like that
r
I guess. I'm still not quite sure about your requirement.
b
for example, I have a page, start.bepste.in that has heimdall on it, but I'm not a huge fan of the authentication that it provides. I'd like to be able to put something more robust in front of it if possible.
that heimdall provides*
r
Yea. You can do that. So you would add supertokens to
start.bepste.in
?
b
I guess? I'm trying to wrap my head around it as well. would heimdall have to move to a different subdomain that would be forwarded from start.bepste.in? or is there some way to integrate supertokens into heimdall if its already in a prebuilt docker container?
r
I really don't understand the requirement. Sorry. Do you have a diagram or something?
b
hang on i can make one.
ok sorry, this is the current configuration. let me know if you need more detail.
basically, I'm asking, would supertokens live at start.bepste.in instead of heimdall, and then forward to wherever I decide to put heimdall?
r
Yes.
I would be on start.bepste.in
b
ok great thanks
