# 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

# Laravel 11+

In Laravel 11, the default EventServiceProvider provider was removed. Instead, add the listener using the listen method on the Event facade, in your AppServiceProvider boot method.

  • Note: You do not need to add anything for the built-in socialite providers unless you override them with your own providers.
Event::listen(function (\SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled $event) {
    $event->extendSocialite('buffer', \SocialiteProviders\Buffer\Provider::class);
Laravel 10 or below 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();
