  1. Does this have the problem of auth state initially not being available on page load, so that it takes a second for it to switch to authenticated mode?

    For me, if I get auth on the server, on the client the session is initially null. So the benefit of having gotten the session on the server is lost.

    1. Hi,

      I’m having a little difficulty understanding your question but I’m guessing that you’re asking why the auth state is not available on initial page load.

      Regarding that, note that a user’s GitHub information is only retrieved after the user is only retrieved after the user has authorized the app to get said information. On initial load, the page simply shows a dummy profile picture and a text instruction the user to login in with GitHub.

      Hope it helps!
