Laravel provides a very simple and cool UI package for the easy step of auth scaffolding. Laravel UI composer package provides simple authentication features like login, registration, password reset, email verification, and password confirmation using bootstrap, react, and vue.

We need an authentication system for keeping our application private. Making authentication in Laravel is quite easy. It has a built-in solution for authentication and various facility to customize it according to our requirements. If you are new in Laravel 9 then in this post I'll show you the step-by-step process for making an authentication system in Laravel 9. Let's follow the step-by-step process for making an authentication system in Laravel 9.

1. Install Laravel Project

First, open Terminal and run the following command to create a fresh laravel project:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel9-auth

or, if you have installed the Laravel Installer as a global composer dependency:

laravel new laravel9-auth

2. Configure Database Details:

After, Installation Go to the project root directory, open .env file, and set database detail as follow:


Now run the database migration command:

php artisan migrate

3: Create Auth using scaffold

Now, in this step, we will create auth scaffold command to create a login, register, and dashboard.

composer require laravel/ui

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for bootstrap

php artisan ui bootstrap
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for Vue

php artisan ui vue
php artisan ui vue --auth

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for react

php artisan ui react
php artisan ui react --auth

Generate basic scaffolding

php artisan ui bootstrap
php artisan ui vue
php artisan ui react

Generate login / registration scaffolding

php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
php artisan ui vue --auth
php artisan ui react --auth

4: Install NPM dependencies

Run this following command to install node dependency and compile CSS and js files:

npm install && npm run dev

5. Test the authentication system
