Leptos OIDC Authentication

leptos_oidc is a utility library for handling OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication within the Leptos framework. It simplifies the integration of OIDC authentication flows with Leptos-based applications, making it easier to manage user authentication and tokens.

Leptos compatibility

Crate version Compatible Leptos version

0.4 0.6


leptos_oidc offers the following features:

  • Initialization of the OIDC authentication process.
  • Generation of login and logout URLs for redirecting users to OIDC providers (e.g., Keycloak).
  • Conditional rendering of components based on the authentication state.
  • Refreshing access tokens and storing them in local storage.
  • Working with client and server side rendering

Missing Features

  • Refetch access token periodically/automatically in the background
  • Some minor code refactoring/cleanup

Tested Backends with Example

leptos_oidc was tested with various backends. This doesn't mean that other backends are not supported. Every backend which is support oidc should work. But feel free to ask for advice or give feedback!

Tested backends:

You can find a setup guide for the backends under docs/backends.




To use leptos_oidc in your Leptos-based application, add it as a dependency in your Cargo.toml file:

leptos_oidc = "0.2"

Note: This needs at least leptos v0.5.


Initialization and Example

To get started with OIDC authentication, initialize the library with the required authentication parameters. You can use the AuthParameters struct to specify the OIDC endpoints, client ID, redirect URIs, and other relevant information.

use leptos::*;
use leptos_oidc::{Auth, AuthParameters};

pub fn App() -> impl IntoView {

    view! {
        <Stylesheet id="leptos" href="/pkg/main.css"/>

        <Link rel="shortcut icon" type_="image/ico" href="/favicon.ico"/>


pub fn AppWithRouter() -> impl IntoView {
    // Specify OIDC authentication parameters here.
    // Note: This is an example for keycloak, please change it to your needs
    let auth_parameters = AuthParameters {
        auth_endpoint: "https://ENDPOINT/auth/realms/REALM/protocol/openid-connect/auth".to_string(),
        token_endpoint: "https://ENDPOINT/auth/realms/REALM/protocol/openid-connect/token".to_string(),
        logout_endpoint: "https://ENDPOINT/auth/realms/REALM/protocol/openid-connect/logout".to_string(),
        client_id: "CLIENT_ID".to_string(),
        redirect_uri: "http://localhost:3000/profile".to_string(),
        post_logout_redirect_uri: "http://localhost:3000/bye".to_string(),
        scope: Some("openid"),
    let auth = Auth::init(auth_parameters);

    view! {
        // This is an example for a navbar where you have a login and logout
        // button, based on the state.
            <Authenticated unauthenticated=move || {
                view! {
                    <LoginLink class="text-login">Sign in</LoginLink>
                <LogoutLink class="text-logut">Sign Out</LogoutLink>

            <Route path="/" view=move || view! { <Home/> }/>

            // This is an example route for your profile, it will render
            // loading if it's still loading, render unauthenticated if it's
            // unauthenticated and it will render the children, if it's
            // authenticated
                view=move || {
                    view! {
                            loading=move || view! { <Loading/> }
                            unauthenticated=move || view! { <Unauthenticated/> }

pub fn Home() -> impl IntoView {
    let auth = expect_context::<Auth>();

    view! {
        <Title text="Home"/>

        // Your Pome Page without authentication

/// This will be rendered, if the authentication library is still loading
pub fn Loading() -> impl IntoView {
    view! {
        <Title text="Loading"/>

        // Your Loading Page/Animation

/// This will be rendered, if the user is unauthenticated
pub fn Unauthenticated() -> impl IntoView {
    view! {
        <Title text="Unauthenticated"/>

        // Your Unauthenticated Page

/// This will be rendered, if the user is authentication
pub fn Profile() -> impl IntoView {
    view! {
        <Title text="Profile"/>

        // Your Profile Page

Note: Please keep in mind that the Auth::init needs to be inside a Router. The internal state is using use_query, which is only available inside a Router.

Generating Login and Logout URLs

leptos_oidc provides functions to generate login and logout URLs for your application. These URLs are used to redirect users to the OIDC provider for authentication and logout.

use leptos::*;
use leptos_oidc::Auth;

fn MyComponent() {
    let auth = expect_context::<Auth>();

    // Generate the login URL to initiate the authentication process.
    let login_url = move || auth.login_url();

    // Generate the logout URL for logging out the user.
    let logout_url = move || auth.logout_url();

Conditional Rendering Components

The library includes transparent components to conditionally render content based on the authentication state. These components simplify the user interface when dealing with authenticated and unauthenticated users.

use leptos::*;
use leptos_oidc::Auth;

fn MyComponent() {

    view! {
        // Generate Sign In link
        <LoginLink class="optional-class-attributes">Sign in</LoginLink>

        // Generate Sign Out link
        <LogoutLink class="optional-class-attributes">Sign Out</LogoutLink>

        <AuthLoaded>"This will be rendered only when the auth library is not loading anymore"</AuthLoaded>

        <AuthLoading>"This will be rendered only when the auth library is still loading"</AuthLoading>

        <Authenticated>"This will only be rendered if the user is authenticated"</Authenticated>

        // A more complex example with optional fallbacks for the loading and unauthenticated state
            unauthenticated=move || view! { "this will only be renderd if the user is unauthenticated" }
            loading=move || view! { "this will only be renderd if the library is still loading" }
                "This will only be rendered if the user is authenticated"

Refreshing Access Tokens

leptos_oidc offers the ability to refresh access tokens. This functionality is essential for ensuring that authenticated users maintain their access rights. Refreshed tokens are stored in local storage.

use leptos::*;
use leptos_oidc::Auth;

fn main() {
    let auth = expect_context::<Auth>();

    view! {
        // Refresh the access token and get the new token.
        <button on:click=move |_| auth.refresh_token() class="text-black dark:text-white">
            Refresh Token
