  • Click on Sign In at the top right to log in.

GitHub Developer Portal.

  • Click Settings near the bottom of the menu
  • In the left sidebar, click Developer settings (near the bottom)
  • In the left sidebar, click OAuth Apps

Find your callback URL#

The next step requires a callback URL, which looks like this:

https://<project-ref>.supabase.co/auth/v1/callback

  • Go to your Supabase Project Dashboard
  • Click on the Authentication icon in the left sidebar
  • Click on Providers under the Configuration section
  • Click on GitHub from the accordion list to expand and you'll find your Redirect URL, you can click Copy to copy it to the clipboard

Register a new OAuth application#

  • Click Register a new application. If you've created an app before, click New OAuth App here.
  • In Application name, type the name of your app.
  • In Homepage URL, type the full URL to your app's website.
  • In Authorization callback URL, type the callback URL of your app.
  • Enter the URL in the Valid OAuth Redirect URIs box.
  • Click Save Changes at the bottom right.
  • Click Register Application.

Copy your new OAuth credentials

  • Copy and save your Client ID.
  • Click Generate a new client secret.

Enter your GitHub credentials into your Supabase Project#

  • Go to your Supabase Project Dashboard

  • Click on Providers under the Configuration section
  • Click on GitHub from the accordion list to expand and turn GitHub Enabled to ON
  • Enter your GitHub Client ID and GitHub Client Secret saved in the previous step

Add login code to your client app#

When your user signs in, call signInWithOAuth() with github as the provider:

async function signInWithGitHub() {
  const { data, error } = await supabase.auth.signInWithOAuth({
    provider: 'github',
  })
}

When your user signs out, call signOut() to remove them from the browser session and any objects from localStorage:

async function signout() {
  const { error } = await supabase.auth.signOut()
}
