So if your application has a login with social then it becomes awesome. you got more people to connect with your website because most of the people do not want to fill out the signup or sign-in form. If there login with social then it becomes awesome.

So if you want to also implement login with Twitter account then i will help you step by step instructions. let's follow tutorial and implement it.

Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel 9

This is optional; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Install JetStream

Now, in this step, we need to use composer command to install jetstream, so let's run bellow command and install bellow library.

composer require laravel/jetstream

now, we need to create authentication using bellow command. you can create basic login, register and email verification. if you want to create team management then you have to pass addition parameter. you can see bellow commands:

php artisan jetstream:install livewire

Now, let's node js package:

npm install

let's run package:

npm run dev

now, we need to run migration command to create database table:

php artisan migrate

Step 3: Install Socialite

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

composer require laravel/socialite

Step 4: Create Twitter App

First we need to create Twitter App and get ID and Secret. So, let's follow bellow steps as well:

Go to Twitter Developer App to click here: https://developer.twitter.com/en/portal/projects-and-apps

You can see bellow screenshots:

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 [

....

'twitter' => [

'client_id' => env('TWITTER_CLIENT_ID'),

'client_secret' => env('TWITTER_CLIENT_SECRET'),

'redirect' => 'http://localhost:8000/auth/twitter/callback',

],

]

Then you need to add google client id and client secret in .env file:

.env

TWITTER_CLIENT_ID=xyz

TWITTER_CLIENT_SECRET=123

Step 5: Add Database Column

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

php artisan make:migration add_twitter_id_column

Migration

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

return new class extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

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

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

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

}

};

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 string[]

*/

protected $fillable = [

'name',

'email',

'password',

'twitter_id'

];

/**

* The attributes that should be hidden for serialization.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $hidden = [

'password',

'remember_token',

'two_factor_recovery_codes',

'two_factor_secret',

];

/**

* The attributes that should be cast.

*

* @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 6: Create Routes

After adding twitter_id column first we have to add new route for twitter login. so let's add bellow route in routes.php file.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\TwitterController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('/', function () {

return view('welcome');

});

Route::middleware(['auth:sanctum', 'verified'])->get('/dashboard', function () {

return view('dashboard');

})->name('dashboard');

Route::controller(TwitterController::class)->group(function(){

Route::get('auth/twitter', 'redirectToTwitter')->name('auth.twitter');

Route::get('auth/twitter/callback', 'handleTwitterCallback');

});

Step 7: Create Controller

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

app/Http/Controllers/TwitterController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite;

use Exception;

use App\Models\User;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;

class TwitterController extends Controller

{

/**

* Create a new controller instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function redirectToTwitter()

{

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

}

/**

* Create a new controller instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function handleTwitterCallback()

{

try {

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

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

if($finduser){

Auth::login($finduser);

return redirect()->intended('dashboard');

}else{

$newUser = User::updateOrCreate(['email' => $user->email],[

'name' => $user->name,

'twitter_id'=> $user->id,

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

]);

Auth::login($newUser);

return redirect()->intended('dashboard');

}

} catch (Exception $e) {

dd($e->getMessage());

}

}

}

Step 8: 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 for="email" value="{{ __('Email') }}" />

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

</div>

<div class="mt-4">

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

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

</div>

<div class="block mt-4">

<label for="remember_me" class="flex items-center">

<x-jet-checkbox id="remember_me" 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">

{{ __('Log in') }}

</x-jet-button>

</div>

{{-- Laravel Login with Twitter Demo--}}

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

<a class="btn" href="{{ route('auth.twitter') }}"

style="background: #1E9DEA; padding: 10px; width: 100%; text-align: center; display: block; border-radius:4px; color: #ffffff;">

</a>

</div>

</form>

</x-jet-authentication-card>

</x-guest-layout>
