Ready-to-use logout button with React
Example: React logout button
Install the Userfront React library
To add the form to your React project, first install
@userfront/toolkit with npm (or yarn).
Render the logout button in React
Initialize the Userfront Toolkit for React with your account ID using
Then, import the
<LogoutButton /> React component from
@userfront/toolkit/react and use it in your React app.
If the user is not logged in, the logout button will show in a disabled state.
You are not required to show the button when the user is not logged in; usually the logout button is only shown on pages where the user must be logged in.
Whenever the user is logged in, the logout button will be clickable.
Whenever the logout button is clicked, it makes an API call to Userfront to invalidate the user's current session and clear any refresh tokens.
The button then removes the access token and ID token cookies from the browser.
Redirect after logout
Once the user's session has been invalidated and their tokens have been cleared from the browser, the browser is redirected to your After-logout path.
If the user is not logged in and the button is clicked, the browser will not be redirected.
