Default provider settings example provider setup example

Login/signup example with Github, Twitter, Twitch and Google enabled. example login


composer require fof/oauth


composer update fof/oauth
php flarum cache:clear



You can replace the text for the forum sign in buttons in two ways.

  • Use<name> to replace the name of the provider on the forum side
  • Use<name>_button to replace the entire button "Log In with " text


It is possible to add additional Providers using an extender. See OAuth-Amazon for an example of how to accomplish this but basically:

  • In your new extension, require fof/oauth as a dependency
  • Define a new Provider which extends FoF\OAuth\Provider
  • From your new extensions extend.php, register the provider (new FoF\OAuth\Extend\RegisterProvider(MyNewProvider::class))
  • Provide the required translations under the fof-oauth namespace. See the linked example extension for details on which keys are required.
  • (optionally) Provide an admin panel link to fof/oauth for easy configuration. Again, see the linked example.
  • (optionally) Provide any CSS required to style your new login button. See the linked example.
