Installation & Basic Usage

Please see the Base Installation Guide, then follow the provider specific instructions below.

Add configuration to config/services.php

'buffer' => [    
  'client_id' => env('BUFFER_CLIENT_ID'),  
  'client_secret' => env('BUFFER_CLIENT_SECRET'),  
  'redirect' => env('BUFFER_REDIRECT_URI') 

Add provider event listener

Configure the package's listener to listen for SocialiteWasCalled events.

Add the event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider. See the Base Installation Guide for detailed instructions.

protected $listen = [
    \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
        // ... other providers


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

return Socialite::driver('buffer')->redirect();
