Laravel UI Scaffolding Tutorial: make:auth removed in Laravel 6/7

If you have already tried Laravel 6/7 and particularly the auth scaffolding you will find out that the php artisan make:auth command doesn't work anymore. This is simply because it's now removed in Laravel 6 and the UI scaffolding is moved to a separate package called laravel/ui.

The laravel/ui package provides the login and registration scaffolding with React, Vue, jQuery and Bootstrap layouts.

What is Laravel/UI

Laravel UI is an official package that contains the extracted UI parts from a Laravel project.

How to Install laravel/ui

Before you can add the UI scaffoldings in your Laravel 6 via the artisan command, you first need to install the laravel/ui package via composer:

$ laravel new laravel-project
$ composer require laravel/ui

Now, you'll have many commands at your disposal that you can use to scaffold UI parts such as the authentication views.

The UI package provides the following commands:

$ php artisan ui --help
  Swap the front-end scaffolding for the application

  ui [options] [--] <type>

  type                   The preset type (bootstrap, vue, react)

      --auth             Install authentication UI scaffolding
      --option[=OPTION]  Pass an option to the preset command (multiple values allowed)
  -h, --help             Display this help message
  -q, --quiet            Do not output any message
  -V, --version          Display this application version
      --ansi             Force ANSI output
      --no-ansi          Disable ANSI output
  -n, --no-interaction   Do not ask any interactive question
      --env[=ENV]        The environment the command should run under
  -v|vv|vvv, --verbose   Increase the verbosity of messages: 1 for normal output, 2 for more verbose output and 3 for debug

This is how you generate the auth scaffolding based on Vue.js or React:

$ php artisan ui vue --auth
$ php artisan ui react --auth

What about the ui:auth command?

The new laravel/ui package provides another ui:auth command that can also be used for scaffolding the auth views.

In your terminal, simply type: bash $ php artisan ui:auth

This command will generate the authentication routes and views along with a home controller and the base layout.

If you want to generate the views alone, type the following command instead:

$ php artisan ui:auth --views


We have seen how to use the laravel/ui package to scaffold the auth views based on Vue, React or Bootstrap in Laravel 6 instead of the removed php artisan make:auth command.

You can find more details about the laravel/ui package from the official docs.
