Hasura Auth runs in a container alongside Postgres and Hasura.

The recommended way to start using Hasura Auth is by using Nhost. With Nhost, you will get a complete backend ready in seconds with Hasura, authentication, storage and serverless functions.

Go to Nhost and start building your app now.


git clone
cd hasura-auth
cp .env.example .env
docker-compose -f docker-compose-example.yaml up

Hasura Auth comes with plenty of options. They are explained in the configuration section.

If you are already familiar with the application, you can also have a look at the environment variables that can be passed on to your docker container.
