Auth Scaffolding Using Jetstream with Intertia Js in Laravel 10

Authenticating users and managing their permissions is a crucial aspect of web application development. Laravel, a popular PHP framework, provides a powerful authentication system called Jetstream. When combined with Inertia.js, a modern JavaScript framework, it allows for seamless integration of authentication features into your Laravel 10 application. In this article, we will walk through the process of scaffolding authentication using Jetstream with Inertia.js in Laravel 10, providing step-by-step instructions that beginners can easily understand and practice.

Prerequisites: Before we begin, ensure you have the following prerequisites in place:

  • A working installation of Laravel 10.
  • Basic knowledge of Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.
  • Familiarity with the concepts of authentication and authorization.

Setting Up Jetstream with Inertia.js:

Install Laravel Jetstream

Start by creating a new Laravel 10 project and installing Jetstream. Open your terminal or command prompt and run the following command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel my-project

cd my-project

composer require laravel/jetstream


Scaffold Jetstream

Once Jetstream is installed, scaffold the authentication components using the following command:

php artisan jetstream:install inertia


Configure the Database

Before proceeding, ensure your database connection details are correctly configured in the .env file of your Laravel project. Create the necessary database tables by running the migrations:

php artisan migrate


Compile the Assets

Next, compile the assets using Laravel Mix. Run the following commands in your terminal:

npm install

npm run dev


Start the Development Server

You can now start the Laravel development server to see your application in action. Execute the following command:

php artisan serve


Authenticating Users

With Jetstream and Inertia.js set up, let's explore the process of authenticating users.

1. Registering Users: By default, Jetstream provides a user registration form. To access it, visit the following URL in your application: http://localhost:8000/register. Fill in the required details and submit the form to create a new user.

2. Logging In: To log in, navigate to http://localhost:8000/login and provide your credentials. Jetstream handles the authentication process and redirects you to the home page upon successful login.

3. Protecting Routes: Jetstream automatically provides middleware to protect routes from unauthorized access. You can use the auth middleware to ensure only authenticated users can access specific routes. Simply add the middleware to the desired routes or controllers.

4. Logging Out: Jetstream also provides a built-in logout feature. You can log out by visiting http://localhost:8000/logout or by adding a logout button to your application.


Customizing Authentication Views

Jetstream allows you to customize authentication views to match the look and feel of your application.

1. View Files: The Jetstream authentication views are located in the resources/views/auth directory. These views are written using Inertia.js syntax and provide a solid foundation for customization.

2. Modifying Views: To modify the views, locate the appropriate file and update it according to your requirements. You can customize the layout, styling, form fields, and more.


By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily scaffold authentication using Jetstream with Inertia.js in Laravel 10. We covered setting up Jetstream, registering and authenticating users, protecting routes, and customizing authentication views. Laravel's Jetstream and Inertia.js provide a powerful combination for building secure and user-friendly applications.
