Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel 6

In this step, if you haven't laravel 6 application setup then we have to get fresh laravel 6 application. So run bellow command and get clean fresh laravel 6 application.

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

Step 2: Install Socialite

In first step we will install Socialite Package that provide 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,

],

. 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://localhost:8000/auth/google/callback',

],

]

Step 4: Create Auth

In this step, we need to install laravel ui and generate auth in laravel 6 application so, let's run following command:

Install Laravel UI:

composer require laravel/ui

Create Auth:

php artisan ui bootstrap --auth

NPM Install:

npm install

Run NPM:

npm run dev

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\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;

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('/', function () {

return view('welcome');

});

Auth::routes();

Route::get('/home', '[email protected]')->name('home');

Route::get('auth/google', 'Auth\[email protected]');

Route::get('auth/google/callback', 'Auth\[email protected]');

Step 6: Create Controller

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 GoogleController.php file.

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/GoogleController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;

use Socialite;

use Auth;

use Exception;

use App\User;

class GoogleController extends Controller

{

/**

* Create a new controller instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function redirectToGoogle()

{

return Socialite::driver('google')->redirect();

}

/**

* Create a new controller instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function handleGoogleCallback()

{

try {

$user = Socialite::driver('google')->user();

$finduser = User::where('google_id', $user->id)->first();

if($finduser){

Auth::login($finduser);

return redirect('/home');

}else{

$newUser = User::create([

'name' => $user->name,

'email' => $user->email,

'google_id'=> $user->id,

'password' => encrypt('123456dummy')

]);

Auth::login($newUser);

return redirect('/home');

}

} catch (Exception $e) {

dd($e->getMessage());

}

}

}

Step 7: Update Blade File

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

resources/views/auth/login.blade.php

I hope it can help you...
