Step - 3

Update the app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LoginControlller.php add the login & Login with Magic Link Function.

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use App\Notifications\SendMagicLinkNotification;
use App\Providers\RouteServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\AuthenticatesUsers;

class LoginController extends Controller
{
    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Login Controller
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | This controller handles authenticating users for the application and
    | redirecting them to your home screen. The controller uses a trait
    | to conveniently provide its functionality to your applications.
    |
    */

    use AuthenticatesUsers;

    /**
     * Where to redirect users after login.
     *
     * @var string
     */
    protected $redirectTo = RouteServiceProvider::HOME;

    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware('guest')->except('logout');
    }

    public function username()
    {
        return 'username';
    }

    public function login(Request $request)
    {


        if($request->input('submit') == 'magic-link'){
            $user = $this->loginViaMagicLink($request);

            if(!$user){
                return redirect()->route('login')
                ->withErrors(['username' => 'User with this username does not exist.'])
                ->withInput();
            }

            return redirect()->route('login')
            ->withMessage('Magic Link Sent to the registered email ID.');
        }

        $this->validateLogin($request);

        // If the class is using the ThrottlesLogins trait, we can automatically throttle
        // the login attempts for this application. We'll key this by the username and
        // the IP address of the client making these requests into this application.
        if (method_exists($this, 'hasTooManyLoginAttempts') &&
            $this->hasTooManyLoginAttempts($request)) {
            $this->fireLockoutEvent($request);

            return $this->sendLockoutResponse($request);
        }

        if ($this->attemptLogin($request)) {
            if ($request->hasSession()) {
                $request->session()->put('auth.password_confirmed_at', time());
            }

            return $this->sendLoginResponse($request);
        }

        // If the login attempt was unsuccessful we will increment the number of attempts
        // to login and redirect the user back to the login form. Of course, when this
        // user surpasses their maximum number of attempts they will get locked out.
        $this->incrementLoginAttempts($request);

        return $this->sendFailedLoginResponse($request);
    }

    public function loginViaMagicLink(Request $request)
    {
        $user = User::where('username', $request->input('username'))->first();

        if ($user) {
            $user->notify(new SendMagicLinkNotification());
        }

        return $user;
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step - 4

Create notification to send magic link on registered email.

php artisan make:notification SendMagicLinkNotification
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After creating the notification open it from app/Notifications and update the code below.

<?php

namespace App\Notifications;

use Grosv\LaravelPasswordlessLogin\LoginUrl;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class SendMagicLinkNotification extends Notification
{
    use Queueable;

    /**
     * Create a new notification instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        //
    }

    /**
     * Get the notification's delivery channels.
     *
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
     */
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return ['mail'];
    }

    /**
     * Get the mail representation of the notification.
     *
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return \Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage
     */
    public function toMail($notifiable)
    {

        $generator = new LoginUrl($notifiable);
        $generator->setRedirectUrl('/home');
        $url = $generator->generate();

        return (new MailMessage)
                    ->subject('Your Login Magic Link!')
                    ->line('Click this link to log in!')
                    ->action('Login', $url)
                    ->line('Thank you for using our application!');
    }

    /**
     * Get the array representation of the notification.
     *
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
     */
    public function toArray($notifiable)
    {
        return [
            //
        ];
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
