composer require socialiteproviders/lichess
# Installation & Basic Usage
Please see the Base Installation Guide (opens new window), then follow the provider specific instructions below.
# Add configuration to
'lichess' => [ 'client_id' => env('LICHESS_CLIENT_ID'), 'client_secret' => env('LICHESS_CLIENT_SECRET'), 'redirect' => env('LICHESS_REDIRECT_URI') ],
According to Lichess.org API reference (2.0.0) Lichess supports unregistered and public clients (no client authentication, choose any unique LICHESS_CLIENT_ID). LICHESS_CLIENT_SECRET is not needed and can be empty. Access tokens are long-lived (expect one year), unless they are revoked. Refresh tokens are not supported.

Add the event to your
listen array in

protected $listen = [ \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [ // ... other providers \SocialiteProviders\Lichess\LichessExtendSocialite::class.'@handle', ], ];
