Python JWT Decode

This page provides a useful Python snippet for decoding JWT. It's a handy resource for developers seeking to understand and utilise JWT handling in the Python language.

import jwt
def decode_jwt(token, secret, algorithms):
    return jwt.decode(token, secret, algorithms=algorithms)

This simple Python code allows you to decode a JWT (JSON Web Token). The function, 'decode_jwt', takes three parameters: 'token', 'secret', and 'algorithms'.

'Token' is the JWT that you want to decode. 'Secret' is the key used for creating the signature. 'Algorithms' is the encryption algorithm used when the original JWT was encoded.

The function will return the decoded data in dictionary form, which is then easily readable. Note: Make sure the 'secret' and 'algorithms' you use match the ones from when the JWT was generated.
