Here i will give full example for laravel 8 login with linkedin using socialite package. So let's follow bellow example:

Step 1 : Install Laravel 8

In the first step, we need to get fresh laravel 8 version application So let's open terminal and run bellow command to install fresh laravel project.

 

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

Step 2 : Database Configuration

In second step, we will make database Configuration for example database name, username, password etc. So lets open .env file and fill all deatils like as bellow:

.env

 

DB_CONNECTION=mysql

DB_HOST=127.0.0.1

DB_PORT=3306

Step 3 : Install Jetstream

Step 4 : Install Socialite

In this step, we need laravel/socialite package. you can install socialite package using bellow command so let's run bellow command :

 

composer require laravel/socialite

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

config/app.php

 

....

'providers' => [

....

Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider::class,

],

'aliases' => [

....

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

],

....

Step 5: Create Linkedin App

Here we need linkedin client id and secret that way we can get information of other user. so if you don't have linkedin app account then you can create from here : Linkedin Developers App. you can find bellow screen :

Now you have to click on Create Application and fill form details and create new application. after created application you can see following slide:

and 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 [

....

'linkedin' => [

'client_id' => 'id',

'client_secret' => 'secret',

'redirect' => 'http://localhost:8000/auth/linkedin/callback'

],

]

Step 6 : Add Column linkedin_id in Users Table

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

 

php artisan make:migration add_linkedin_id_column_in_users_table --table=users

database/migrations/2020_09_18_052105_add_linkedin_id_column_in_users_table.php

 

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class AddLinkedInIdColumn extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

Schema::table('users', function ($table) {

$table->string('linkedin_id')->nullable();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::table('users', function ($table) {

$table->dropColumn('linkedin_id');

});

}

}

Update mode like this way:

app/Models/User.php

 

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;

use Laravel\Fortify\TwoFactorAuthenticatable;

use Laravel\Jetstream\HasProfilePhoto;

use Laravel\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

class User extends Authenticatable

{

use HasApiTokens;

use HasFactory;

use HasProfilePhoto;

use Notifiable;

use TwoFactorAuthenticatable;

/**

* The attributes that are mass assignable.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $fillable = [

'name',

'email',

'password',

'linkedin_id'

];

/**

* The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $hidden = [

'password',

'remember_token',

'two_factor_recovery_codes',

'two_factor_secret',

];

/**

* The attributes that should be cast to native types.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $casts = [

'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',

];

/**

* The accessors to append to the model's array form.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $appends = [

'profile_photo_url',

];

}

Step 7: Create Routes

Here, we need to add resource route for login with linkedin account. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

 

use App\Http\Controllers\Auth\LinkedInController;

Route::get('auth/linkedin', [LinkedInController::class, 'redirectToLinkedin']);

Route::get('auth/linkedin/callback', [LinkedInController::class, 'handleLinkedinCallback']);

Step 8: Create Controller

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

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LinkedInController.php

 

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;

use Socialite;

use Auth;

use Exception;

use App\Models\User;

class LinkedInController extends Controller

{

protected function validator(array $data)

{

return Validator::make($data, [

'name' => 'required|max:255',

'email' => 'required|email|max:255|unique:users',

'password' => 'required|confirmed|min:6',

]);

}

protected function create(array $data)

{

return User::create([

'name' => $data['name'],

'email' => $data['email'],

'password' => bcrypt($data['password']),

]);

}

public function redirectToLinkedin()

{

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

}

public function handleLinkedinCallback()

{

try {

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

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

if($finduser){

Auth::login($finduser);

return redirect('/dashboard');

}else{

$newUser = User::create([

'name' => $user->name,

'email' => $user->email,

'linkedin_id'=> $user->id,

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

]);

Auth::login($newUser);

return redirect('/dashboard');

}

} catch (Exception $e) {

dd($e->getMessage());

}

}

}

Step 9: 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

 

<x-guest-layout>

<x-jet-authentication-card>

<x-slot name="logo">

<x-jet-authentication-card-logo />

</x-slot>

<x-jet-validation-errors class="mb-4" />

@if (session('status'))

<div class="mb-4 font-medium text-sm text-green-600">

{{ session('status') }}

</div>

@endif

<form method="POST" action="{{ route('login') }}">

@csrf

<div>

<x-jet-label value="{{ __('Email') }}" />

<x-jet-input class="block mt-1 w-full" type="email" name="email" :value="old('email')" required autofocus />

</div>

<div class="mt-4">

<x-jet-label value="{{ __('Password') }}" />

<x-jet-input class="block mt-1 w-full" type="password" name="password" required autocomplete="current-password" />

</div>

<div class="block mt-4">

<label class="flex items-center">

<input type="checkbox" class="form-checkbox" name="remember">

<span class="ml-2 text-sm text-gray-600">{{ __('Remember me') }}</span>

</label>

</div>

<div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">

@if (Route::has('password.request'))

<a class="underline text-sm text-gray-600 hover:text-gray-900" href="{{ route('password.request') }}">

{{ __('Forgot your password?') }}

</a>

@endif

<x-jet-button class="ml-4">

{{ __('Login') }}

</x-jet-button>

<a href="{{ url('auth/linkedin') }}" class="ml-1 btn btn-primary" style="margin-top: 0px !important;background: #0077B5;color: #ffffff;padding: 5px;border-radius:7px;">

<strong>Login With Linkedin</strong>

</a>

</div>

</form>

</x-jet-authentication-card>

</x-guest-layout>
