OAuth2 is a security framework that controls access to protected areas of an application, and it’s mainly used to control how different clients consume an API ensuring they have the proper permissions to access the requested resources.
Laravel Passport is a full OAuth2 server implementation; it was built to make it easy to apply authentication over an API for laravel-based web applications.
Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at https://flareapp.io
Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.
Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.
Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.
Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
