Install humble with composer:

composer require acidjazz/humble

Add Humble's trait to your user model:

use acidjazz\Humble\Traits\Humble;
class User extends Authenticatable
  use Humble, Notifiable;

Publish Humble's migrations (sessions table)

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="humble.migrations"

Run the migration

php artisan migrate

Change your guard in your config, to the 'humble' guard in config/auth.php, in my case since I mainly use Laravel as an API

    'guards' => [
        'web' => [
            'driver' => 'session',
            'provider' => 'users',

        'api' => [
            'driver' => 'humble',
            'provider' => 'users',

Check your defaults as well, if it's not api, you'll need to change that

If your user class is not App\Models\User, we need to tell humble what it is:

Publish Humble's configuration

 php artisan vendor:publish --tag="humble.config"

Modify config/humble.php and specify your user class
