A package for Laravel Socialite that allows you to easily add new providers or override current providers.


  • You will have access to all of the providers that you load in using the manager.
  • Instantiation is deferred until Socialite is called
  • You can override current providers
  • You can create new providers
  • Lumen usage is easy
  • stateless() can be set to true or false
  • You can override a config dynamically
  • It retrieves environment variables directly from the .env file instead of also having to configure the services array.

Available Providers


Creating a Handler

Below is an example handler. You need to add this full class name to the listen[] in the EventServiceProvider.

namespace Your\Name\Space;

use SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled;

class ProviderNameExtendSocialite
    public function handle(SocialiteWasCalled $socialiteWasCalled)
        $socialiteWasCalled->extendSocialite('providername', \Your\Name\Space\Provider::class);

Creating a Provider

Overriding a Built-in Provider

You can easily override a built-in laravel/socialite provider by creating a new one with exactly the same name (i.e. 'facebook').

Dynamically Passing a Config

You can dynamically pass a config by using:

$clientId = "secret";
$clientSecret = "secret";
$redirectUrl = "http://yourdomain.com/api/redirect";
$additionalProviderConfig = ['site' => 'meta.stackoverflow.com'];
$config = new \SocialiteProviders\Manager\Config($clientId, $clientSecret, $redirectUrl, $additionalProviderConfig);
return Socialite::with('provider-name')->setConfig($config)->redirect();

You must call this before you run any Socialite methods.

Creating an OAuth1 Server Class

Take a look at the other OAuth1 providers for inspiration.

Getting 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.

To make this possible, the OAuth2 provider class needs to extend \SocialiteProviders\Manager\OAuth2\AbstractProvider and OAuth1 providers need to utilize the \SocialiteProviders\Manager\OAuth1\AbstractProvider and \SocialiteProviders\Manager\OAuth1\Server.

You can access it from the user object like so: $user->accessTokenResponseBody
