Most web applications and mobile apps need a way for users to authenticate themselves so that the backend APIs and database can access data in the context of the user. One of the leading service providers within authentication services is Okta Auth0. They provide a very powerful platform and a ton of features for creating optimal user login experiences.

In this blogpost, we'll show how you can easily authenticate serverless API routes using only a few lines of code together with the public signing key/JWKS endpoint method of validating JWT tokens. Don't know what that is? Don't worry. Read on 馃憠. We have used a React single-page example from Auth0 here, but it should work just fine with their other examples as well (Angular, JavaScript, Vue).

API's, Microservices and JavaScript are the digital glue of the modern Internet.

This blog post shows how you can build a fast serverless API for a large data set. We'll use a 144MB file with 500K famous quotes to create an efficient NoSQL datastore using code hooks. We'll build and deploy a public serverless API to serve random quotes from the NoSQL database to clients.
