Jetstream was released alongside with Laravel 8. It has all the modern authentication method built-in. For example, profile image, password management, two factor authentication, browser session management, and account management.

You can choose using Livewire or Inertia and the designed is preset using Tailwind. The register, login, and profile pages are ready to use out of the box, unless you need to modify these pages, you don’t really know Livewire or Inertia in order to have a fully functional user management system with Jetstream.

Let’s say you cannot afford to have Livewire or Inertia added to your application, you can use Fortify.

  1. Install Fortify composer require laravel/fortify
  2. Publish Fortify resources php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravel\\Fortify\\FortifyServiceProvider"
  3. Add app/Providers/FortifyServiceProvider in config/app.php
  4. Manage which services to use in config/fortify.php. As of this writing, Fortify documentation recommends only enable Features::registion(), Features::resetPasswords(), and Features::emailVerification().

Configuring views

We need to tell Fortify to view the login file. In the boot method of FortifyServiceProvider.

Let’s take a look at the login as an example.

Fortify::loginView(function () {
    // resources/views/auth/login.blade.php
    return view('auth.login');
});

The required fields are email and password. It should make a post to /login route.

Let’s do one more with register

Fortify::loginView(function () {
    // resources/views/auth/register.blade.php
    return view('auth.register');
});

The required fields are name, email, and password.

I think Laravel is moving on from Laravel/Ui. The authentication portion of UI is moved to Laravel/Jetstream. Laravel now really don’t have a frontend framework preset, it’s really up to the developer to choose which one to use.
