How to create a Passport application and connect it to your client

This guide will take you through the basic steps of connecting your application to your passport client using Svelte and Immutable SDK. In order to deploy this example, you will need to configure SSL.

Clone the template repository

git clone https://github.com/Arturski/immutable-base-project-svelte.git
cd immutable-base-project-svelte

NOTE: It is a base template made with Vite and SvelteKit and also includes the Immutable SDK for implementing passport functionality and most of the essential web3 polyfills.

Install and test your environment

npm i
npm run dev -- --open

Create a store for the Passport provider object

  1. Create a new file src/store.ts.

  2. Add the following code and modify the passportConfig object with your Passport configuration by replacing placeholders with actual values. We will demo a working deployment in this guide and we won't use the URLs yet.

import { writable } from "svelte/store";
import {config, passport} from "@imtbl/sdk";

const passportConfig = {
clientId: "APP_ID",
redirectUri: "CALLBACK URL",
logoutRedirectUri: "LOGOUT_URL",
scope: "transact openid offline_access email",
audience: "platform_api",
baseConfig: new config.ImmutableConfiguration({
environment: config.Environment.SANDBOX, // Set the appropriate environment value
apiKey: "", // Provide the apiKey if required
}),
};


const passportInstance = new passport.Passport(passportConfig);

export const providerStore = writable<undefined | null>(null);
export const passportStore = writable<passport.Passport>(passportInstance);

Create the Auth helper module (auth.ts):

  1. Create a new file src/auth.ts.

  2. Define the login and handleLoginCallback functions using provided code to manage authentication.

  3. Connect options:

    1. Immutable X: connectImx();

    2. Immutable zkEVM: connectEvm();

    3. Connect silently using existing session token: connectSilent();

import { passportStore, providerStore } from "./store";
import { get } from "svelte/store";

export async function login(): Promise<void> {
const passportInstance = get(passportStore);
const providerInstance = await passportInstance.connectImx();
providerStore.set(providerInstance as any);
}

export async function handleLoginCallback(): Promise<void> {
const passport = get(passportStore);
await passport.loginCallback();
}

Create pages and routing

Inside the src/routes directory, create Svelte components for different pages and layouts. the "index" page in this case is +page.svelte and any directory is a route so for the purpose of this tutorial we will modify some content in the index page and also add a /login route for the callback.

We already have our index page therefore we will simply adjust the existing src/routes/+page.svelte with the following code to add the login button.

Index Page

First, we will add some functions to the <script> tag. The onMount function will check if there is an existing session stored in the browser at the time the script was loaded. copyJsonToClipboard allows us to store the session JSON object into Clipboard memory if we want to inspect it later. Note that we are also importing the auth.ts module we created earlier to use the login function.

import { onMount } from 'svelte';
import { login } from '../auth';

let jsonData: string | null = null;
let showStatus: boolean = false;

onMount(() => {
const keyPrefix = 'oidc.user:https://auth.immutable.com';
if (typeof sessionStorage !== 'undefined') {
for (let i = 0; i < sessionStorage.length; i++) {
const key = sessionStorage.key(i);
if (key && key.startsWith(keyPrefix)) {
const sessionData = sessionStorage.getItem(key);
if (sessionData) {
try {
jsonData = JSON.parse(sessionData);
}
catch (error) {
console.error('Error parsing session data:', error);
}
}
break;
}
}
}
});

async function copyJsonToClipboard() {
if (jsonData) {
try {
await navigator.clipboard.writeText(JSON.stringify(jsonData, null, 2));
showStatus = true;
}
catch (error) {
console.error('Error copying to clipboard:', error);
}
}
}

Additionally, we will add some logic to the Index page rendering. We create a conditional display:

  • If a session already exists, don't show the login button (for demo purposes) but instead offer to copy the object to clipboard and show a confirmation message.

Add the following code just below the title.

{#if jsonData}
<button on:click={copyJsonToClipboard} class={showStatus ? 'hidden' : ''}>
Copy session to clipboard
</button>
{#if showStatus}
<p class="status">Logged in. Session data in clipboard. Ctrl+V in any text editor.</p>
{/if}
{:else}
<button on:click={login}>

class="logo"
alt="IMX logo"
/>
</button>
{/if}

Login page

We also need to create a callback route which will receive all the necessary authentication data from the auth provider.

  • Create a new directory src/routes/login. This will automatically create a /login route

  • Add a new file called +page.svelte. This will serve as the index page for /login

  • Add the following code. We are using our helper module to execute the handling of the LoginCallback

<script lang="ts">
import { onMount } from 'svelte';
import { handleLoginCallback } from '../../auth';

onMount(async () => {
await handleLoginCallback();
});
</script>

Access Your App

Open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost:5173/ to view your SvelteKit app. The result should be similar to the screenshot below.

By following these steps and integrating the provided code samples, you've successfully created an Immutable Passport integrated application.
