laravel 8 with react fortify

Currently in the latest Laravel 8 version, there is no direct integration with react, but we can integrate Laravel 8 with react and fortify

First install laravel 8 with easy composer command

composer create-project laravel/laravel laravel-react

Install laravel ui

composer require laravel/ui

Run laravel react command

php artisan ui react

Run npm install and npm dev command

npm install
npm run dev
For database connection you need to set the database configuration in .env file for your app.
DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=react-laravel
DB_USERNAME=root
DB_PASSWORD=""
After setting database we need to clear the config cache and Now you can run the laravel development server
php artisan config:cache
php artisan serve

Now for authentication we need to install the Laravel fortify

composer require laravel/fortify

Next, publish Fortify’s resources using the vendor:publish command:

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

This command will publish Fortify’s actions to your app/Actions directory, which will be created if it does not exist. In addition, Fortify’s configuration file and migrations will be published.

Next, you should migrate your database:

php artisan migrate

For showing auth ui we need to add some files for auth front end. In the views/layouts folder add app.blade.php with below code

<!doctype html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
