We need to create an app in google developer and use their credentials in our project.

So open this URL first :

Login to your google account if not already. after login, you will see below screen.

Now it is time to use the credentials in our laravel project.

Go back to your laravel project and open your .env file.

Write down the below source lines in .env file.

You need to write your Google Client Id and secret in first two lines.

Now open config->services.php file. Add the following code in this file.

So final code for services.php file is as the below

Move 5. Welcome Blade file

Open your resources->views->welcome.blade.php file.

In this file, there are some links like Docs, Laracasts, News, Blogs etc.

We need to add below line near these links.

So final source snippet for welcome.blade.php file is as the below

Look at the bottom lines in above code. I have added our line inside a div with content and title m-b-md class.

When the user clicks on this link, system will start the process of google login. If user is already logged in with browser then it will simply fetch user information, otherwise a window will be opened where user can enter google id and password.

Move 6. Writing Authentication and Routes

Now our task is to enable authentication for our project.

Trigger the below command in the terminal.

Above command will create some file automatically that will integrate primary authentication feature in our laravel project.

  • Now open routes->web.php file to write some routes file.
  • In this file, add the following lines.

First route is pointing to the redirect() method in SocialAuthController file.

Second is giving reference to the callback() method in SocialAuthController file.

So final code block for routes->web.php file is as the following

Move 7. Writing Controller File

Fire up the below command in your terminal.

After this command, you can find a controller file named “SocialAuthController” inside app->Http->Controllers directory.

In this file, you should write down the below source code

Above controller file includes two functions. One is redirect() and another is callback().

redirect() will tell compiler to initiate the google login process.

When user have entered correct email and password, compiler will call callback() function.

It will store the user information like email, name, gender etc. inside the variable $user.

Then it will simply return the view file home.blade.php 

Compiler will pass details using $user and $service.

Move 8. Final Words

Now we have successfully login with google. It is time to display google information.

  • Navigate to the resources->views->home.blade.php file.

In this file, add the following coding lines

This file is the front end file which will be loaded after google login.

Consider the following snippet

One if condition will check the value of $service. If it is google then it will go inside the if condition.

Here, it will print the message using $details variable. We are fetching name and email using this variable.
