# Buffer

composer require socialiteproviders/buffer


As of October 14th, 2019, Buffer no longer supports the registration of new developer applications. Applications created prior to this date will retain access to the Buffer Publish API. Please visit our Changelog (opens new window) page for more details.

# Installation & Basic Usage

Please see the Base Installation Guide (opens new window), then follow the provider specific instructions below.

# Add configuration to config/services.php

'buffer' => [    
  'client_id' => env('BUFFER_CLIENT_ID'),  
  'client_secret' => env('BUFFER_CLIENT_SECRET'),  
  'redirect' => env('BUFFER_REDIRECT_URI') 

# Add provider event listener

Configure the package's listener to listen for SocialiteWasCalled events.

Add the event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider. See the Base Installation Guide (opens new window) for detailed instructions.

protected $listen = [
    \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
        // ... other providers

# Usage

You should now be able to use the provider like you would regularly use Socialite (assuming you have the facade installed):

return Socialite::driver('buffer')->redirect();
