  1. Really great article 😊 I really enjoyed reading it and it makes me want to switch to Next.js. I was wondering why you called this client-side rather than severless? Is the authentication not done server side by SSR? I really apologize if I’m wrong, I’m just trying to understand the authentication flow.

  2. website: next-auth.js
    Example code : next-auth-example
    npm package : next-auth

    But it is called NextAuth.js and not next-auth.js as one could guess from all your urls.

    Am I missing something here ?

  3. Unhandled Runtime Error
    Error: React Context is unavailable in Server Components

    Call Stack
    SessionProvider

    can you please resolve this error

    1. Use the “use client” flag at the top of the file.
      That error is showing up because “SessionProvider” is using react context which is a client component and for it to work, you must mark the file as a client component with the flag above.

      You are using react 13.+.+ I believe
