Getting StartedΒΆ

In order to add Sanic JWT, all you need to do is initialize it by passing the sanic_jwt.initialize method the Sanic() instance, and an authentication function.

from sanic_jwt import Initialize

async def authenticate(request):
    return dict(user_id='some_id')

app = Sanic()
Initialize(app, authenticate)

You now will have a couple endpoints at your disposal:

  • /auth
  • /auth/verify

To obtain a token, just send a POST call to the /auth endpoint:

curl -X POST http://localhost:8000/auth

You should get back a bit of JSON like this:

    "access_token": "<JWT>"
