How to login with facebook in laravel

To allow users to login with Facebook in Laravel, you can follow these steps:



Step 1 - Create a Facebook Developer account and create a new Facebook App.


Step 2 - Install the laravel/socialite package using Composer by running the following command in your Laravel project's root directory:

composer require laravel/socialite


Step 3 - In the config/services.php file, add the following configuration for the Facebook provider:

'facebook' => [
    'client_id' => env('FACEBOOK_CLIENT_ID'),
    'client_secret' => env('FACEBOOK_CLIENT_SECRET'),
    'redirect' => env('FACEBOOK_REDIRECT_URI'),


Step 4 - In your .env file, add the following environment variables:


Replace your_facebook_app_id, your_facebook_app_secret, and your_redirect_uri with the appropriate values.


Step 5 - In your AuthController or another appropriate controller, add the following method to redirect the user to Facebook for authentication:

use Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite;

public function redirectToProvider()
    return Socialite::driver('facebook')->redirect();


Step 6 - Add the following method to your controller to handle the Facebook callback:

public function handleProviderCallback()
    $user = Socialite::driver('facebook')->user();

    // Do something with the user data (e.g. create a new user, log them in)

    return redirect('/home');


Step 7- In your routes/web.php file, add the following routes:

Route::get('login/facebook', 'AuthController@redirectToProvider');
Route::get('login/facebook/callback', 'AuthController@handleProviderCallback');

Replace AuthController with the appropriate controller.


That's it! Your users can now login to your Laravel app using their Facebook credentials.
