Laravel Fortify: Implement Authentication Scaffolding In Laravel 8

Razet · · 7947 Views

Since the arrival of Laravel 8 and Jetstream, the package laravel/ui fall in some sort of deprecated status.

The issue with Jetstream is that we simply need the auth scaffolding without the need of Inertia.js or Livewire stacks.

Don't get me wrong, I love working with Inertia or Livewire, yet in some cases, you only need the auth part.

Going back to laravel/ui, it's as yet conceivable to utilize the package on Laravel 8. However, I want to restore that functionality without the referenced package.

In the guide, I'm going to describe steps to have similar behavior using Laravel Fortify.

Project setup

  1. laravel new laravel-fortify-demo

  2. composer require laravel/fortify

  3. php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Laravel\\Fortify\\FortifyServiceProvider"

  4. configure your database

  5. php artisan migrate

Setup Fortify

Open config/app.php and register Fortify service provider:


Next, open config/fortify.php and update your features array as follow:

'features' => [

Now we need to tell Fortify where is our auth views.

Open app/Providers/FortifyServiceProvider.php and in the boot method add:

Fortify::loginView(function () {
    return view('auth.login');

Fortify::registerView(function () {
    return view('auth.register');

Fortify::requestPasswordResetLinkView(function () {
    return view('auth.forgot-password');

Fortify::resetPasswordView(function () {
    return view('auth.reset-password');

Create the views

We need to create the 4 mentioned blade files:

  1. resources/views/auth/forgot-password.blade.php

  2. resources/views/auth/login.blade.php

  3. resources/views/auth/register.blade.php

  4. resources/views/auth/reset-password.blade.php

I "borrowed" the views from the laravel/ui package; 


This article covers the essential register, login, and password reset functionalities.

Here are some other features of Laravel fortify, 

  1. Forget Password & User Profile Update
