Auth and User accounts

Has anyone built a redwood app with authentication and user accounts yet?

I am wondering if I should wait until redwood releases their solution or implement a solution of my own for now (Maybe with netlify identify or Auth0).

Seems this is already being discussed here: Identity Options

Yes, and there’s a Github Issue as well to follow along. See latest here:

If you need to get going right way, we are recommending Netlify Auth, which you probably saw in Rob’s comment on the topic you linked to, “Identity Options”.

You can see authentication being done the old fashioned way (but still with Netlify Identity) in the example-blog repo. Unfortunately Redwood isn’t playing nice with netlify dev right now (which enables Netlify Identity when developing on localhost) but you can take a look at the code and see what I did.
