1. Install laravel 6 Application

First, we need to download a laravel 6 fresh setup. Use the below command and download fresh new laravel setup :

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

2. Setup Database

After successfully install laravel 6 Application, Go to your project .env file and set up database credential :

 DB_CONNECTION=mysql 
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=here your database name here
DB_USERNAME=here database username here
DB_PASSWORD=here database password here

3. Download Socialite Package

In this step, we will install the laravel socialite package for google login. you can use the below command and install this laravel socialite package :

composer require laravel/socialite

After successfully install socialite package, we need to configure the aliese and provider in config/app.php :

'providers' => [
// Other service providers…
Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider::class,
],

'aliases' => [
// Other aliases…
'Socialite' => Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite::class,
],

4. Get Secrets from google

First of all, We need to required CLIENT ID and CLIENT SECRET to add a social google login button in the laravel based project, let’s go to https://console.developers.google.com/ and create a new app. You will create the app with valid information.

After successfully create an app in Google and get credentials from Google dashboard, Set client id and client secret config/service.php file :

 'google' => [
    'client_id' => 'xxxx',
    'client_secret' => 'xxx',
    'redirect' => 'http://127.0.0.1:8000/callback/google',
  ],

Go to app/User.php and set fillable property put the below code here :

protected $fillable = [
'name', 'email', 'password', 'provider', 'provider_id'
];

Next step, Go to app/database/create_users_table.php and replace the below function here :

public function up()
{
Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
    $table->increments('id');
    $table->string('name');
    $table->string('email')->unique()->nullable();
    $table->string('provider');
    $table->string('provider_id');
    $table->timestamp('email_verified_at')->nullable();
    $table->string('password')->nullable();
    $table->rememberToken()->nullable();
    $table->timestamps();
});
}

Next step, we need to create new blade views for login, registration, forget the password and reset password. So visit this link for new laravel auth scaffolding.

Before we run PHP artisan migrate command go to app/providers/AppServiceProvider.php and put the below code :

...
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
 
....
function boot()
{
    Schema::defaultStringLength(191);
}
...

Next, migrate the table using the below command :

php artisan migrate

5. Make Route

We will create two routes in the web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

 Route::get('/auth/redirect/{provider}', '[email protected]');
Route::get('/callback/{provider}', '[email protected]');

6. Create Controller

We need to create a controller name SocialController. Use the below command and create Controller :

php artisan make:controller SocialController

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/SocialController.php and put the below code :

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator,Redirect,Response,File;
use Socialite;
use App\User;
class SocialController extends Controller
{
public function redirect($provider)
{
    return Socialite::driver($provider)->redirect();
}

public function callback($provider)
{
          
    $getInfo = Socialite::driver($provider)->user();
    
    $user = $this->createUser($getInfo,$provider);

    auth()->login($user);

    return redirect()->to('/home');

}
function createUser($getInfo,$provider){

 $user = User::where('provider_id', $getInfo->id)->first();

 if (!$user) {
     $user = User::create([
        'name'     => $getInfo->name,
        'email'    => $getInfo->email,
        'provider' => $provider,
        'provider_id' => $getInfo->id
    ]);
  }
  return $user;
}
}
Now We Add two buttons on the lara project for social google login. We have added this login button to login blade view and register blade view

In Project, go to Resources/Views/Auth/register.blade.php and add a google social login button :

<hr>
<div class="form-group row mb-0">
<div class="col-md-8 offset-md-4">
<a href="{{ url('/auth/redirect/google') }}" class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-google"></i> Google</a>
</div>
</div>

In Project, go to Resources/Views/Auth/login.blade.php and add a google social login button :

<hr>
<div class="form-group row mb-0">
<div class="col-md-8 offset-md-4">
<a href="{{ url('/auth/redirect/google') }}" class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-google"></i> Google</a>
</div>
</div>

7. Run Development Server

We need to start the development server. Use the PHP artisan serve command and start your server :

 php artisan serve

Now we are ready to run our LinkedIn login laravel 6 examples so run bellow command to quick run.
