I’m using a server action on my next.js project which sets the jwt cookie on sign_in

 * Sets the JWT cookie with the appropriate expiration time.
 * @param jwt - The JSON Web Token to be stored in the cookie.
function setJwtCookie(jwt: string): void {
  let exp: number | null = null;
  try {
    const payload = JSON.parse(
      Buffer.from(jwt.split(".")[1], "base64").toString()
    exp = payload.exp || null;
  } catch (error) {
    exp = null;

  const defaultExpirationTime = 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000; // 24 hours in milliseconds
  const expirationTime = exp ? exp * 1000 : Date.now() + defaultExpirationTime;
  const expires = new Date(expirationTime);

  cookies().set("jwt", jwt, {
    httpOnly: true,
    secure: process.env.NODE_ENV === "production",
    sameSite: "strict",
    path: "/",
 * Signs in the user with the provided credentials.
 * Sets the JWT cookie and redirects to the dashboard on success.
 * @param _prevState - Previous state, unused.
 * @param formData - Form data containing 'identifier' and 'password'.
 * @returns A message indicating the failure of the operation, or redirects to the dashboard on success.
export async function sign_in(
  _prevState: unknown,
  formData: FormData
): Promise<FormMessage> {
  try {
    const identifier = formData.get("identifier") as string;
    const password = formData.get("password") as string;
    const response = await fetch(AUTH_URL, {
      method: "POST",
      headers: {
        "Content-Type": "application/json",
      body: JSON.stringify({ identifier, password }),
    const { jwt, error } = await response.json();
    await new Promise((resolve) => setTimeout(resolve, 1500));

    if (error) {
      if (error.status === 400) {
        return { message: "Invalid username or password" };
      return { message: error.message || "Server Error", type: "error" };

    if (jwt) {
  } catch (error) {
    return { message: "Server Error" };

Next.js is a react framework, you can do the same thing in react.
