We have you covered!

Simply follow this guide to quickly get started and build your foundation before you get into building a Web3 application that is integrated with the Arcana Auth SDK.

Arcana Auth SDK allows Web3 application developers to quickly plug in user onboarding functions via social and passwordless login. It also provides authenticated users to access the embedded Web3 Arcana wallet in the application and sign blockchain transactions.


If you are already familiar with how Web3 works, typical social authentication mechanisms, passwordless login, using Web3 wallet provider to sign blockchain transactions in your dApp, you can jump right into the Arcana Quick Start Guide and start integrating with the Auth SDK.

After the foundation, your next stop is to figure out when and how to use Arcana Auth SDK and build a basic dApp that utilizes Arcana SDKs.

Beginners Journey

Get a firm grip on the topics listed under the prerequisites section. These will help you later while building your privacy-preserving dApps using Arcana SDKs.


Step 1: Understanding Arcana Network

Now that you are familiar with the basics, let us take a look at what Arcana Network is and what it can do for you.

Step 2: Getting Started with Auth SDK

To use Arcana Auth SDK in your application, you need to first register the application using the Arcana Developer Dashboard. Configure social providers to onboard users before you integrate your application and call any Auth SDK functions in your application.

After configuring application settings using the dashboard, you can install the Auth SDK and integrate your application. Once integrated, applications can access AuthProvider interface to onboard users and enable authenticated users to sign blockchain transactions.

The Auth SDK supports two options for onboarding users via social providers. For the new Web3 developers, we recommend the Arcana Auth SDK plug and play feature that offers a built-in user authentication UI to onboard users. Seasoned developers can build custom user authentication UI. For details, see how to onboard users guide.

Developers can easily enable Arcana wallet for authenticated users and allow them to sign blockchain transactions. See developer's guide for enabling Web3 operations using Arcana wallet.

To learn about how the users access Arcana wallet UI to perform Web3 operations and sign blockchain transactions, see Arcana wallet User's Guide.

Now that you understand Arcana Auth better let's get into some sample applications and coding!

Step 3a: Auth Example

This is a vanilla HTML/JS application that integrates with the Auth SDK, onboards users, and allows authenticated users to sign blockchain transactions using the Arcana wallet.
