Google Login in React

Hello developers,
in this blog I am going tell you that how can you implement google signin/login in your app/website. I am using react-google-login library for this blog. Else you can do it with firebase too but it has a different process.

First Steps.

• You must need a google account.
• You have to generate a client id with google api.
• While generating a client id, you need to permit the url in which the login system will work. example: mysite.com.

Following me on twitter will help us both so consider following

Using the library

npm install react-google-login or yarn add react-google-login

import { GoogleLogin } from 'react-google-login';

function App() {
  const responseGoogle = (response) => {
    console.log(response);
  }

  return (
    <GoogleLogin
      clientId="your-client-id"
      buttonText="Login"
      onSuccess={responseGoogle}
      onFailure={responseGoogle}
      cookiePolicy={'single_host_origin'}
    />
  )
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

How to keep you logged in

To keep your user logged in you need you use isSignedIn props.

<GoogleLogin
  clientId="your-client-id"
  onSuccess={responseGoogle}
  isSignedIn={true}
/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Get user info to display

It is pretty simple to get user info, in case you want to display it.

const [name, setName] = useState("")
const [email, setEmail] = useState("")
const [picture, setPicture] = useState("")

const responseGoogle = (response) => {
  console.log(response);
  // getting user info
  setName(response.profileObj.name)
  setEmail(response.profileObj.email)
  setPicture(response.profileObj.imageUrl)
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

+Bonus

you can use a loginStatus, setLoginStatus useState system to redirect you once someone is logged in.
