September Update: Increased project limits, SAML, Hacktoberfest

Hello Hanko Enthusiasts!

As the leaves turn and we transition to autumn, Hanko continues to evolve and flourish. September has brought significant product improvements, new tutorials, and much more. Without further ado, let's jump right in!

πŸ”₯ Major Product Enhancements:

  • Increased project quotas: Great news for our Hanko Cloud users! Free users can now have up to 2 projects (up from 1), and Pro subscribers can manage up to 5 projects (up from 3).
  • Disable signup: Based on popular demand, Hanko now offers the option to disable new user signups. This is perfect for private beta rollouts or exclusive, invitation-only user groups.
  • Improved styling for Hanko Elements: Our Hanko login box and profile element just got a facelift! They now have enhanced default styling, looking even more polished right out of the box.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» What's Brewing at Hanko?

  • Enterprise SSO: We're introducing SAML-based enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities, making Hanko a fit for sophisticated B2B use cases. Support for Identity providers like Okta, Azure AD, Auth0, Keycloak, and more is underway, with a beta release scheduled for October 2023.
  • Hanko API Revamp: We’re re-engineering our Hanko API. The shift from the current REST API to the new Flow API promises a more effortless and efficient user experience, paving the way for Hanko's longevity.

πŸš€ Coming Soon: Hanko Passkey Server Preview:

For projects that desire passkey support without overhauling their existing systems, we're introducing the Hanko Passkey Server. This plug-in solution will cater to custom authentication needs, and what's more, it will be fully open-source and hosted on Hanko Cloud.

πŸ“˜ Fresh Off the Press – New Guides & Tutorials:

  • Discover how to use Resend.com for Hanko authentication emails using a custom SMTP server: Read More
  • New to Next.js? We've got a beginner-friendly guide to building a Next.js app with Prisma and Hanko passkey login: Dive In

🌐 Passkeys Gaining Ground:

  • Nintendo embraces the future with passkeys, rolling it out for all Nintendo account users. Learn More
  • Uber is currently developing passkey support, aiming to replace costly SMS 2FA and ensure a unified login experience across their platform.
