1. Installation

composer require laravel-fans/socialite-providers

2. Service Provider

  • Remove Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider from your providers[] array in config\app.php if you have added it already.

  • Add \SocialiteProviders\Manager\ServiceProvider::class to your providers[] array in config\app.php.

For example:

return [
    'providers' => [
         * Package Service Providers...
        // remove 'Laravel\Socialite\SocialiteServiceProvider',
  • Note: If you would like to use the Socialite Facade, you need to install it.

3. Event Listener

  • Add SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider.

  • Add your listeners (i.e. the ones from the providers) to the SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled[] that you just created.

  • The listener that you add for this provider is 'LaravelFans\\SocialiteProviders\\Coding\\CodingExtendSocialite@handle',.

  • Note: You do not need to add anything for the built-in socialite providers unless you override them with your own providers.

For example:

use LaravelFans\SocialiteProviders\Coding\CodingExtendSocialite;
use LaravelFans\SocialiteProviders\WeChatWeb\WeChatWebExtendSocialite;
use SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled;

class EventServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    protected $listen = [
        Registered::class => [
        SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
            // add your listeners (aka providers) here


4. Configuration setup

You will need to add an entry to the services configuration file so that after config files are cached for usage in production environment (Laravel command artisan config:cache) all config is still available.

Add to config/services.php.

return [
    'coding' => [
        'client_id' => env('CODING_CLIENT_ID'),
        'client_secret' => env('CODING_CLIENT_SECRET'),
        'redirect' => env('CODING_CALLBACK_URL'),
        'guzzle' => [
            'base_uri' => 'https://' . env('CODING_TEAM') . '',
        'scopes' => preg_split('/,/', env('CODING_SCOPES'), null, PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY), // optional, can not use explode, see vlucas/phpdotenv#175

5. Usage

  • Laravel docs on configuration

  • You should now be able to use it like you would regularly use Socialite (assuming you have the facade installed):

return Socialite::with('coding')->redirect();

Lumen Support

You can use Socialite providers with Lumen. Just make sure that you have facade support turned on and that you follow the setup directions properly.

Note: If you are using this with Lumen, all providers will automatically be stateless since Lumen does not keep track of state.

Also, configs cannot be parsed from the services[] in Lumen. You can only set the values in the .env file as shown exactly in this document. If needed, you can also override a config (shown below).


  • You can set whether or not you want to use the provider as stateless. Remember that the OAuth provider (Twitter, Tumblr, etc) must support whatever option you choose.

Note: If you are using this with Lumen, all providers will automatically be stateless since Lumen does not keep track of state.

// to turn off stateless
return Socialite::with('coding')->stateless(false)->redirect();

// to use stateless
return Socialite::with('coding')->stateless()->redirect();

Overriding a config

If you need to override the providers environment or config variables dynamically anywhere in your application, you may use the following:

$clientId = "foo";
$clientSecret = "bar";
$redirectUrl = "";
$additionalProviderConfig = [
    // Add additional configuration values here.
    'guzzle' => [
        'base_uri' => '',
$config = new \SocialiteProviders\Manager\Config(

return Socialite::with('coding')->setConfig($config)->redirect();

Retrieving the Access Token Response Body

Laravel Socialite by default only allows access to the access_token. Which can be accessed via the \Laravel\Socialite\User->token public property. Sometimes you need access to the whole response body which may contain items such as a refresh_token.

You can get the access token response body, after you called the user() method in Socialite, by accessing the property $user->accessTokenResponseBody;

$user = Socialite::driver('coding')->user();
$accessTokenResponseBody = $user->accessTokenResponseBody;
