JWT-Guard is a Laravel package that allow authentication and authorization as a guard driver using JWT tokens.

This package was forked from paulvl/jwt-guard.

Quick Installation

Begin by installing this package through Composer.

You can run:

composer require yosmelvin/jwt-guard 0.*

Or edit your project's composer.json file to require yosmelvin/jwt-guard.

    "require": {
        "yosmelvin/jwt-guard": "0.*"

Next, update Composer from the Terminal:

composer update

Once the package's installation completes, the final step is to add the service provider. Open config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array:


Finally publish package's configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="LucasRomano\JWTGuard\Auth\AuthServiceProvider"

Then the file config/jwt.php will be created.

JWT Guard

JWT driver setup!

To start using JWT drive you need to create anew guard on config/auth.php file:

'guards' => [
        'jwt' => [
            'driver' => 'jwt',
            'provider' => 'users',

You can use any Eloquent provider that you want.

###Using JWT Guard


	// Assuming you retrieve your credentials from request
	$credentials = [
		'email' => 'test@example.com',
		'password' => 'password'
	//this will return a token array
	return Auth::guard('jwt')->attempt($credentials);


	//this will blacklist current jwt-token and referenced refresh token if exists
	return Auth::guard('jwt')->blacklistToken();

###Using JWT Middleware

if you need to validate JWT token request just add LucasRomano\JWTGuard\Auth\Middleware\AuthenticateJwt::class to routeMiddleware on Http/Kernel.php file:

protected $routeMiddleware = [
        'auth-jwt' => \LucasRomano\JWTGuard\Auth\Middleware\AuthenticateJwt::class,
