This plugin is an helper and doesn't add anything to your wordpress theme. You might want to use it in conjunction with your frontend custom code.

You can use vanilla Javascript, Angular, or any framework that suits your needs.

Here's an example with jQuery:

    type: "POST",
    url: "http://yoursite.dev/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php", //change this url acoording to your wp site
    xhrFields: {
        withCredentials: true
    data: {
        user: "username", //hard-coded for example purposes
        pwd: "password", //hard-coded for example purposes
        action: "clientAjaxLogin"
    success: function(resp) {
        var respObj = JSON.parse( resp );
        if( respObj.success ) {
            window.location = respObj.success;
        } else {
            console.log( respObj.error );

Of course you can bind the ajax call to an event like submitting a form.
