Socialite Providers

The aim of this guide is to walk you through setting up a fresh Laravel project with Jetstream, Socialstream and Socialite Providers.
If you're unfamiliar with Laravel Socialite, Jetstream or Socialite Providers, we encourage you to read through their documentation before continuing with this guide.

Before we begin, this guide assumes that you have already setup a fresh Laravel project with Socialstream. If this is not the case, check out the Installation instructions for Socialstream.

Installation

To install a socialite provider, you may do so via composer. For example, to add the Apple provider, you may execute the following command in your terminal:
composer require socialiteproviders/apple

Setup

Icons

First, we need to create an SVG icon or custom button component for the provider within your desired stack. You will then need to update the published components for your stack to cater for this provider:
Livewire
Icon location: resources/views/components/socialstream-icons/
  • resources/views/components/socialstream.blade.php
  • resources/views/components/connected-account.blade.php
Inertia
Icon location: resources/js/Components/SocialstreamIcons/
  • resources/js/Components/Socialstream.vue
  • resources/js/Components/ConnectedAccount.vue

Config

Socialstream Providers

Inside your applications socialstream.php config file, you will want to add the string representation of the SocialiteProvider you are adding support for. For example, if you are adding Sign in With Apple support, you would add the string 'apple' to the providers array:
// ./config/socialstream.php
​
'providers' => [
\JoelButcher\Socialstream\Providers::github(),
\JoelButcher\Socialstream\Providers::google(),
[
'id' => 'apple',
'name' => 'Apple',
'label' => 'Sign in with Apple',
],
],

Service Providers

When using Socialstream alongside Socialite Providers, you will need both service providers adding your the providers array in you application's app.php config file:
'providers' => [
// ...
\App\Providers\SocialstreamServiceProvider::class, // keep
// ...
​
// ...
// remove 'Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider::class',
\SocialiteProviders\Manager\ServiceProvider::class, // add
// ...
];

Database Changes – token

Some providers will not return a token in the callback response. As such, you will need to modify the connected_accounts table migration to make the token field nullable:
$table->string('token', 1000)->nullable();
