NextJS 13 integration using the App Directory

Does the nextjs-auth0 package work with the NextJS 13 experimental app directory?

The documentation and examples for using nextjs-auth0 for NextJS 12.x using the _app.ts file are very clear and straight forward and I have that working as expected. What’s the correct way to implement nextjs-auth0 in NextJS 13.x? I tried moving the wrapper element to a root layout.ts or template.ts file and even leaving it in _app.ts, but trying to use the useUser() hook from within a page in the /app directory results in an error about useUser() not being a function.

I can’t seem to find any code examples for how to use nextjs-auth0 with the app directory. Any help appreciated.


I would also like to know this


I am very much interested too. A element of my choice between Next and Nuxt was indeed the existence of the Auth0-Next integration.

Looks like Auth0 support for NextJS 13 is still pending the official stable release of Next’s app directory. See this thread on the repo - NextJS 13: support for server-side components in nextjs-auth0 · Issue #889 · auth0/nextjs-auth0 · GitHub

I think this will become quite important to auth0. The nextjs-auth0 package is a nice community effort, but I do not think they are a relevant blocker or decision maker. The nextjs app dir and server rendered components could possibly be treated simply like any server API. We would want auth0 to take a closer look and put out recommendations or examples on how to build against nextjs 13 app dir.
