vue-social-auth is an easily configurable solution for Vue.js & Laravel with Socialite that provides Social login using Github, Facebook, Google, and other OAuth providers.

The best part about this library is that it is not strictly coupled to one request handling library like vue-axios. You will be able to use it with different libraries.

For now, it is tested to work with vue-resource and axios (using vue-axios wrapper).

WARNING: Default request library is axios using vue-axios wrapper plugin.

NOTE: It also works with any Php with Socialite

Supported OAuth providers and configurations

NOTE: make sure you config your Socialite configuration data in services.php & .env for more details check https://socialiteproviders.netlify.com/
