Stytch Ruby Gem

The Stytch Ruby gem makes it easy to use the Stytch user infrastructure API in Ruby applications.

It pairs well with the Stytch Web SDK or your own custom authentication flow.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'stytch'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install stytch


You can find your API credentials in the Stytch Dashboard.

This client library supports all Stytch's live products:

Example usage

Create an API client:

client =
    env: :test, # available environments are :test and :live
    project_id: "***",
    secret: "***"

Send a magic link by email:
    email: ""

Authenticate the token from the magic link:

    token: "SeiGwdj5lKkrEVgcEY3QNJXt6srxS3IK2Nwkar6mXD4="

Handling Errors

When possible the response will contain an error_type and an error_message that can be used to distinguish errors.

Learn more about errors in the docs.


See example requests and responses for all the endpoints in the Stytch API Reference.

Follow one of the integration guides or start with one of our example apps.
