Hey Dev.to! 🚀🚀🚀

I'm looking for some tips on how to get Social auth with Linkedin working in Laravel. Hope someone with experience with this can point me to a github repo that works, because every repo I've tried is broken in some way and my exploration has led nowhere :(

I already know Laravel has a Socialite package for social auth: https://laravel.com/docs/5.8/socialite

And this exists:
https://socialiteproviders.netlify.com/providers/linked-in.html

But I have a lot of things on my plate so auth is a huge pain in my rear and I don't want to spend days learning about access keys and oAuth. I'm looking for a simple end-to-end working example for Linkedin login in Laravel, just short of plugging in my Linkedin keys.

Thank you for any tips 🙏🙏🙏

Actually I've implemented the system that is socialite provider independent and is able to handle twitter, google, linkedin as well as facebook.
Did you try this? arjunphp.com/laravel-5-6-socialite...
