Provide a template for authentication

f7LoginServer is a useful server elements to fine tune the f7Login page.

updateF7Login toggles a login page.

f7Login(..., id, title, label = "Sign In", footer = NULL, startOpen = TRUE)

f7LoginServer(input, output, session, ignoreInit = FALSE, trigger = NULL)

updateF7Login(
  id,
  user = NULL,
  password = NULL,
  session = shiny::getDefaultReactiveDomain()
)

Arguments

...

Slot for inputs like password, text, ...

id

f7Login unique id.

title

Login page title.

label

Login confirm button label.

footer

Optional footer.

startOpen

Whether to open the login page at start. Default to TRUE. There are some cases where it is interesting to set up to FALSE, for instance when you want to have authentication only in a specific tab of your app (See example 2).

input

Shiny input object.

output

Shiny output object.

session

Shiny session object.

ignoreInit

If TRUE, then, when this observeEvent is first created/initialized, ignore the handlerExpr (the second argument), whether it is otherwise supposed to run or not. The default is FALSE.

trigger

Reactive trigger to toggle the login page state. Useful, when one wants to set up local authentication (for a specific section). See example 2.

user

Value of the user input.

password

Value of the password input.

Details

This function does not provide the backend features. You would need to store credentials in a database for instance.

Note

There is an input associated with the login status, namely input$login. It is linked to an action button, which is 0 when the application starts. As soon as the button is pressed, its value is incremented which might fire a observeEvent listening to it (See example below). Importantly, the login page is closed only if the text and password inputs are filled. The f7LoginServer contains a piece of server logic that does this work for you.
