Connect your App with Whop
So, what can you do with the Whop API? Here are some common use cases you will find helpful with Whop's API.

Login

On the frontend, whop.login() will open a login widget for your users to easily login through Whop, Discord, or Twitter. See what the login page looks like here.

​
let whop = new Whop("<YOUR CLIENT ID>")
​
$(".login").click(async function(e) {
let user = await whop.login()
let name = user["name"]
console.log(user)
})

License Management

On the backend, you can use Whop to do license management. This includes issuing a license to a user using your product, validating it, and revoking it.

Validating License

The first time a user enters your application, ask them to input their license key and use Whop to verify it is valid.
// Ask your user to input their license key in your UI.
var licenseKey = "test";
​
var resp = await whop.validateLicenseByKey(licenseKey, {});

Updating License with Metadata

Store metadata along with the license instance, including hardware ID (so you can verify a user isn't using the same license key from multiple devices) and any other user information you'd like.
var resp = await whop.updateLicenseByKey(licenseKey, {
"hwid": hwid,
"userHash": userHash
})

Continual License Validation

In the background of your application, periodically ensure that the user still has a valid license and that the generated metadata (ex. current device they are using) matches the stored metadata.
var resp = await whop.validateLicenseByKey(licenseKey, {
"hwid": hwid,
"userHash": userHash
});

Ban License

At the end of a user's license term or in case of delinquent payments or violation of terms of service, use Whop to revoke a user's license.
var resp = await whop.banLicenseByKey(licenseKey);
