It's been 4 months since we've started building Hanko open source and today we're happy to announce the initial beta release of the project on GitHub.
The timing couldn't be better, as Apple's passkey implementations will soon be available for everyone to test in the public beta versions of iOS 16 and macOS 13. It's a fascinating experience to see the first true evolutionary step in user authentication in action. Of course, Hanko's passwordless authentication also works on all current live platforms (iOS, macOS, Android, Windows), just without the full passkey support that will be available on our devices later this year.
Head over to GitHub now and give Hanko a try, we'd love to hear your feedback.
Hanko's code has been available on GitHub since day 1 of development. We've been adding new features almost daily, and today we reached our biggest milestone yet: the first beta release. Here's what we've added since the last announcement a few weeks ago and what completes the project:
Just follow the Getting Started guide in the project's readme to get your passkey-enabled login example app up and running locally with Docker Compose in just a few minutes.
We'd love to get to know you and hear your feedback, so we invite you to join our growing Hanko Community on Slack and be a part of the passkey revolution.
