Introduction

Socialstream is a third-party package for Laravel Jetstream. It replaces the published authentication and profile scaffolding provided by Laravel Jetstream, with scaffolding that has support for Laravel Socialite.

If you are unfamiliar with Laravel Socialite, it is strongly advised that you take a look at the official documentation.

Installation

Getting started with Socialstream is a breeze. With a simple two-step process to get you on your way to creating the next big thing. Inspired by the simplicity of Jetstream's installation process, Socialstream follows the same 'installation':

composer require joelbutcher/socialstream

php artisan socialstream:install

The socialstream:install command will overwrite the Jetstream published files which are required for Socialstream to work.

Note: If you don't have Laravel Jetstream installed, the above command will walk you through the steps required to install it.

Configuration & Setup

Once Socialstream is installed, it will publish a config file. In this config file, you can define whether or not the packages alterations should be shown, the middleware used to wrap the routes as well as the providers that you wish to use:

<?php

return [
    'middleware' => ['web'],
    'providers' => [
        \JoelButcher\Socialstream\Providers::github(),
        \JoelButcher\Socialstream\Providers::facebook(),
        \JoelButcher\Socialstream\Providers::google()
    ],
    'features' => [
        // \JoelButcher\Socialstream\Features::rememberSession(),
    ],
];

Once you’ve defined your providers, you will need to update your services.php config file and create client_id, client_secret and redirect keys for each provider:

'{provider}' => [
    'client_id' => env('{PROVIDER}_CLIENT_ID'),
    'client_secret' => env('{PROVIDER}_CLIENT_SECRET'),
    'redirect' => env('{PROVIDER}_REDIRECT'), // e.g. 'https://your-domain.com/oauth/{provider}/callback'
],

Generating the redirect.

In some cases, you may want to customise how Socialite handles the generation of the redirect to a provider. For example, you may wish to To do this, you may alter the GenerateRedirectForProvider action found in app/Actions/Socialstream. For example, you may need to define scopes, the response type (e.g. implicit grant type), or any additional request info:

/**
 * Generates the redirect for a given provider.
 * 
 * @param  string  $provider
 * 
 * @return \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\RedirectResponse
 */
public function generate(string $provider)
{
    return Socialite::driver($provider)
        ->scopes(['*'])
        ->with(['response_type' => 'token'])
        ->redirect();
}

Resolving users

By default, Socialstream will resolve user information from Socialite using the following logic:

Socialite::driver($provider)->user();

Returning an instance of \Laravel\Socialite\AbstractUser. However, you may wish to customise the way user resolution is done. For example, you may wish to use the stateless method available for some Socialite providers. Socialstream makes this easy for you and publishes a ResolveSocialiteUser action to you applications app/Actions/Socialstream directory. Simply customise this class with the logic required for your use-casee.

Handling Invalid State

To handle instances where Socialite throws an InvalidStateException a dedicated HandleInvalidState action is made available to you when you first install Socialstream. You are free to modify or extend this action according to your needs.

Alternatively, you may write your own action to handle the exception. To do so, you'll need to implement JoelButcher\Socialstream\Contracts\HandlesInvalidState and update the following line in App\Providers\SocialstreamServiceProvider

Socialstream::handlesInvalidStateUsing(HandleInvalidState::class);

Socialite Providers

If you wish to use the community driven socialiteproviders package with Socialstream, you may do so by following their documentation on installing the package into a Laravel project. There are a few configuration steps you will need to go through first.

To implement a custom provider, you will need to create an SVG icon file (e.g. twitter-icon.blade.php or TwitterIcon.vue) to be used in the authentication cards and the account management panel.

You will then need to alter the appropriate published components with your new icons and provider condition:

  • Connected Account component
  • Socialstream Providers component

Note: Some providers will not return a token in the callback response. As such, you will need to modify the 2020_12_22_000000_create_connected_accounts_table.php migration to allow the token field to accept NULL values
