Hey fellow developers! Today, we're diving into the learning about user authentication in Laravel. Don't worry if it sounds complicated – we'll break it down step by step using the Laravel/UI package, like putting together pieces of a puzzle.
Laravel/UI is like a helper that makes setting up user sign-up and login a breeze. It gives us a push in the right direction.
Let's Get Started:
Follow these easy steps to add user authentication to your Laravel project.
Step 1: Install Laravel/UI
Open your terminal and type this this command:
composer require laravel/ui
This brings in Laravel/UI, our trusty sidekick for authentication adventures.
Step 2: Create Sign-Up and Login Pages
Now, tell Laravel/UI to create the pages where users can sign up and log in. It's like asking it to draw the doors to your app:
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
Step 3: Set Up Your Database
Make sure your app knows where to store user info. Run this command:
php artisan migrate
This gets your database ready for action.
*Step 4: Open Your App *
Time to launch your app! Run this command to start the server:
php artisan serve
Now, visit app at http://localhost:8000.
Try it out to make sure everything works:
- Go to http://localhost:8000/register to create a new account.
- Log in using the credentials you just made at http://localhost:8000/login.
Extra Things: 🎉
If you want to add more cool stuff, like giving certain users special powers, use these commands:
npm run dev
These commands make app even good layout and UI! And there you have it – user authentication in Laravel made easy with Laravel/UI.
