React and Authorization using an API


Curious about calling APIs from the browser and authentication using react client-side.
If you were to build an app using react, calling an existing API which is expecting to receive an authentication token in the HTTP header. What are some libraries that I could look at to handle this for me.
Failing that what is the best approach to do so, if at all. If not, why?
If you are using JWT tokens you can use jwt-decode - https://github.com/auth0/jwt-decode. Basically you can use this to parse the token and get all the information contained within it.
When you login, you will receive the token which you can store in storage or a redux variable and then when you make API calls just add it to the header. jwt-decode can be used to get information about the user etc from the token.
