Native Laravel JWT Authentication Driver

Scrutinizer Code Quality Travis Build Status Packagist Version

This package provides a native Laravel driver for JWT Authentication.

Installation

To install this package you will need:

  • Laravel 5.2 +
  • PHP 5.5.9 + (Laravel dependency)

Install via composer - edit your composer.json to require the package.

"require": {
    "framgia/laravel-jwt": "0.1.*"
}

Then run composer update in your terminal to install it in.

OR

Run composer require framgia/laravel-jwt to automatically install latest version

After installation you need to add the service provider to your app.php config file.

'providers' => [
    // ...
    Framgia\Jwt\JwtServiceProvider::class,
    // ...
],

Configuration

Add the jwt driver configuration to your auth.php config file.

'guards' => [
    // ...
    'jwt' => [
        'driver' => 'jwt',
        'provider' => 'users', // May be replaced with preferred provider.
    ],
    // ...
],

laravel-jwt uses the application secret key for encrypting the tokens. You can use a separate key by defining the JWT_KEY environment variable in your server configuration or .env file.

In order to overwrite default settings publish the jwt.php config file to your project.

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Framgia\Jwt\JwtServiceProvider"

Usage

To obtain the guard instance use the facade or service container.

Auth::guard('jwt');
app('auth')->guard('jwt');

The guard includes basic methods required by the Guard contract and following methods for authentication:

// Retrieve new authentication token by user credentials
$token = $guard->attempt($credentials);

// Blacklist current user token to discard authentication
$guard->logout();

In order to pass authentication, provide the returned token with Authorization header:

Authorization: Bearer TOKEN_HERE

By default token includes jit, sub and exp claims. If you need to provide custom claims, add ProvidesCredentials contract to your authenticatable instance.

// ...
use Framgia\Jwt\Contracts\ProvidesCredentials;
// ...

class User implements Authenticatable, ProvidesCredentials
{
    // ...

    /**
     * Get credentials for JWT.
     *
     * @return array
     */
    public function getCredentials()
    {
        return [
            'admin' => $this->isAdmin(),
            'role' => $this->role,
        ];
    }

    // ...
}
