Right now I have a website with Facebook auth. I also have JWT working… meaning that I can generate and read valid tokens based on my users after they do a Facebook login.
Next, I am creating some hybrid apps on android/ios. They need to:
Handle the Facebook login with my Facebook app, then generate a JWT token that my website backend can use, and finally connect to my backend’s api and fetch data.
Now I’m trying to understand since I already have half of this working, but Auth0 has a Nativescript implementation that would save me time and trouble… should I bother with Auth0? And will it actually make it easy to accomplish the flow I am describing above?
To tell the truth, I took a closer look at the pricing scheme and that, if I’m reading it right, has made the decision for me! I read somewhere the prices were reasonable but they don’t appear to be reasonable at all!
I thought… if we get 7000 users for free… then you probably charge a bit of money for anything above that… maybe starting at 10000 users? But no… if you want more than 7000 users… am I reading this right? If you want 10000 it’s 200$ per month?? And then 380 for 20k? lmao… well this sounds like it’s for the businesses that have lots of cash to throw around. It’s not for small start-ups that have a technical person on board capable of achieving the same thing using open source solutions. I’ll stick to my custom implementation… because basically, I don’t have a choice! The pricing scheme made sure of that.
