In this tutorial, i would like to share with you how to login with google account using socialite package in laravel 5.8 app. we can easily sign in and signup with google gmail account in laravel 5.8. we will use google authentication for login in laravel 5.8.

If you want to create login with google account then you can do it easily using laravel socialite composer package. If you use other php framework then it difficult to make login with google. But Laravel provide socialite so you can so it quickly. You just need to create secret, app id from google api console.

Just follow few steps to done login with google account example:

Step 1: Install Laravel 5.8

In this step, if you haven’t laravel 5.8 application setup then we have to get fresh laravel 5.8 application. So run bellow command and get clean fresh laravel 5.8 application.

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

Step 2: Install Socialite Package

In first step we will install Socialite Package that provide fb api to connect with google account. So, first open your terminal and run bellow command:

composer require laravel/socialite

After install above package we should add providers and aliases in config file, Now open config/app.php file and add service provider and aliase

'providers' => [

    ....

    Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider::class,

],

'aliases' => [

    ....

    'Socialite' => Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite::class,

],

Step 3: Create Google App

In this step we need google client id and secret that way we can get information of other user. so if you don’t have google app account then you can create from here : Google Developers Console. you can find bellow screen :

Now you have to click on Credentials and choose first option oAuth and click Create new Client ID button. now you can see following slide:

after create account you can copy client id and secret.

Now you have to set app id, secret and call back url in config file so open config/services.php and set id and secret this way:

config/services.php

return [
    ....
    'google' => [
        'client_id' => 'app id',
        'client_secret' => 'add secret',
        'redirect' => 'http://learnl52.hd/auth/google/callback',
    ],
]

Step 4: Add Database Column

In this step first we have to create migration for add google_id in your user table. So let’s run bellow command:

php artisan make:migration add_google_id_column

Migration

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
   
class AddGoogleIdColumn extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::table('users', function ($table) {
            $table->string('google_id')->nullable();
        });
    }
   
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        //
    }
}

Update mode like this way:

app/User.php

<?php
  
namespace App;
  
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
  
class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use Notifiable;
  
    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password', 'google_id'
    ];
  
    /**
     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $hidden = [
        'password', 'remember_token',
    ];
   
    /**
     * The attributes that should be cast to native types.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',
    ];
}

Step 5: Create Routes

After adding google_id column first we have to add new route for google login. so let’s add bellow route in routes.php file.

app/Http/routes.php

Route::get('google', function () {
    return view('googleAuth');
});
    
Route::get('auth/google', 'Auth\[email protected]');
Route::get('auth/google/callback', 'Auth\[email protected]');

Step 6: Update Controller File

After add route, we need to add method of google auth that method will handle google callback url and etc, first put bellow code on your LoginController.php file.

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LoginController.php

<?php
   
namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;
   
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\AuthenticatesUsers;
use Socialite;
use Auth;
use Exception;
use App\User;
   
class LoginController extends Controller
{
    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Login Controller
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | This controller handles authenticating users for the application and
    | redirecting them to your home screen. The controller uses a trait
    | to conveniently provide its functionality to your applications.
    |
    */
   
    use AuthenticatesUsers;
   
    /**
     * Where to redirect users after login.
     *
     * @var string
     */
    protected $redirectTo = '/home';
   
    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware('guest')->except('logout');
    }
   
    public function redirectToGoogle()
    {
        return Socialite::driver('google')->redirect();
    }
   
    public function handleGoogleCallback()
    {
        try {
  
            $user = Socialite::driver('google')->user();
   
            $finduser = User::where('google_id', $user->id)->first();
   
            if($finduser){
   
                Auth::login($finduser);
  
                return return redirect('/home');
   
            }else{
                $newUser = User::create([
                    'name' => $user->name,
                    'email' => $user->email,
                    'google_id'=> $user->id
                ]);
  
                Auth::login($newUser);
   
                return redirect()->back();
            }
  
        } catch (Exception $e) {
            return redirect('auth/google');
        }
    }
}

Step 7: Create Blade File

Ok, now at last we need to add blade view so first create new file googleAuth.blade.php file and put bellow code:

resources/views/googleAuth.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Laravel 5.8 Login with Google Account Example</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
       <div class="row">
         <div class="col-md-12 row-block">
          <a href="{{ url('auth/google') }}" class="btn btn-lg btn-primary btn-block">
          <strong>Login With Google</strong>
          </a> 
         </div>
       </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Ok, now you are ready to use open your browser and check here : URL + ‘/google’.

I hope it can help you…
