When a user opens your app for the first time, they will be asked to sign in (or create a free account). If the user is successfully authenticated on the server, the sign in form executes a callback to the signin method contained in the AppContext and passes the user object.
The sign in process then executes three tasks:
- 1.Stores the user object (token, permission, name) in local storage
- 2.Sets the Bearer token for all API calls
- 3.Prompts the user to allow push notifications (if they haven't already)
- 4.Redirects the user to the dashboard
The next time the app is loaded, the app will check the auth status of the user and direct them to /signin if there isn't an active token.
User permissions for the client app are stored in /app/config.json under permissions.
