tip

This Provider template only has a one hour access token to it and only has the "identity" scope. If you want to get a refresh token as well you must follow this:

providers: [
RedditProvider({
clientId: process.env.REDDIT_CLIENT_ID,
clientSecret: process.env.REDDIT_CLIENT_SECRET,
authorization: {
params: {
duration: "permanent",
},
},
}),
]
