NetTuts.com:
Setting Up User Authentication in Laravel Using Confide
August 08, 2014 @ 11:05:24

NetTuts.com has posted a new tutorial recently showing how you can use Confide to set up authentication in a Laravel-based PHP application. Confide is a package specifically for Laravel that provides a lot of the usual needs for a user authentication system.

User authentication is part of almost every web application. Although it is common, a deeper look shows that it's not as simple as it may seem. Remember that validation, password recovery, and email confirmation are vital to any decent authentication form. Confide is an authentication solution for Laravel made to reduce the repetitive work involving the management of users. [...] In this tutorial, we'll start from the very beginning by creating our Laravel app using Composer and then: create a signup form with a full set of validation rules, a login form with a "forgot my password" option that will send a link for the user to redefine his password and use Laravel filters to only allow logged users can access a specific route.

The tutorial walks you through creating a simple Laravel application (obviously you can always use one you've already created) and getting Confide installed via Composer. Once you've added the provided lines to the Laravel configuration, you'll be ready to follow along with their examples. They run the migrations to set up the database and show how to view the user pages (and update their look to something a bit more friendly). The remainder of the post shows how to add in the pre-execute validation, via Laravel's filters, to ensure a user is logged in on certain routes.
