Ready-to-use logout button with React

In this section, we add an automatic logout button that will:

#Example: React logout button


To add the form to your React project, first install @userfront/toolkit with npm (or yarn).

#Render the logout button in React

Initialize the Userfront Toolkit for React with your workspace ID using Userfront.init().

Then, import the <LogoutButton /> React component from @userfront/toolkit/react and use it in your React app.

It's often easier to build your own logout button than to use this automatic one.

#Disabled state

If the user is not logged in, the logout button will show in a disabled state.

You are not required to show the button when the user is not logged in; usually the logout button is only shown on pages where the user must be logged in.

Whenever the user is logged in, the logout button will be clickable.

#Clearing tokens

Whenever the logout button is clicked, it makes an API call to Userfront to invalidate the user's current session and clear any refresh tokens.

The button then removes the access token and ID token cookies from the browser.

#Redirect after logout

Once the user's session has been invalidated and their tokens have been cleared from the browser, the browser is redirected to your After-logout path.

If the user is not logged in and the button is clicked, the browser will not be redirected.
