This tutorial will explore how to set up authentication scaffolding in Laravel 10 using the Jetstream package combined with Livewire. Authentication is a crucial aspect of many web applications, and Jetstream and Livewire offer a streamlined and convenient way to implement it. Following the steps outlined in this article, even beginners can grasp and practice the process independently.
Prerequisites: To follow along with this tutorial, make sure you have the following:
- A basic understanding of PHP and Laravel.
- A local development environment set up with Laravel 10.
- Composer installed on your system.
Step 1: Create a New Laravel 10 Project
First, let's create a new Laravel 10 project by running the following command in your terminal:
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel auth-app
This command will generate a fresh Laravel installation in the " auth-app " directory.
Step 2: Install Jetstream
Next, navigate to the project's root directory:
Then, run the following command to install Jetstream:
composer require laravel/jetstream
Step 3: Run Jetstream Installer
After successfully installing Jetstream, run the Jetstream installer command:
php artisan jetstream:install livewire
This command will set up Jetstream with the Livewire stack, which combines Laravel Livewire and Blade components for interactive UIs.
Step 4: Run NPM and Migration Commands
Once Jetstream has been installed, run the following commands to install NPM dependencies and run the database migrations:
npm install npm run dev php artisan migrate
Step 5: Start the Development Server
To start the Laravel development server, use the following command:
php artisan serve
By default, the server will begin on http://localhost:8000.
Step 6: Test Authentication
Visit the Laravel application in your web browser. You should see a fresh Laravel installation. Click on the "Login" or "Register" links to test the authentication functionality provided by Jetstream.
Congratulations! You have successfully set up authentication scaffolding using Jetstream with Livewire in Laravel 10. Following the step-by-step instructions in this tutorial, you have gained valuable experience implementing authentication in your Laravel applications. Feel free to explore and customize the authentication views and functionality to fit your project's requirements.
