Are you trying to decide whether or not to build your website using a static site generator or a content management system? If so, you’ll enjoy this.
Great article Randall - thanks! What is the easiest way to use Okta to protect a static site like Jekyll? Can I do it with “out of the box” or do I need to add something like this: https://github.com/Widen/cl… ?
Randall is on vacation this week. In the meantime, his Add Authentication to Any Web Page in 10 Minutes article might help.
Thanks Matt - I read that, but it is really geared towards a SPA or traditional web app. Static content is a bit different as you only want to allow the content to be downloaded if the user is authenticated. Probably requires some kind of reverse proxy, and not sure if Okta offers such a feature.
That tool actually looks pretty great – you really only have 2 options at the moment: you can either use our widget (like in the guide I wrote that Matt linked to), or you can use something like cloudfront-auth to handle it at the edge on the CDN.
If you want to use Okta to secure “everything” (like a private portal), something like cloudfront-auth is probably a good solution, otherwise using our widget is the best option at the moment for more granular stuff since you can use it on-page to make decisions.
If static site generators are getting so popular why aren’t there more tools available that support them? For now, my goto is INK for ALL: http://bit.ly/2ECXoDa
