  • Generate and verify JSON Web Tokens simply with Little JWT

    First, thank you to everyone who contributed to Tymon's JWT Auth library. I found there were various issues with it (lasagna code, having to extend/override existing functionality, lack of functionality, etc.) that made it challenging to work with, which is what inspired me to create Little JWT.

  • [PHP/Laravel] Any suggestions for Laravel with JWT?
    1 project | | 2 Nov 2021
    I'm not sure if Sanctum is fine for generating tokens because the jwt-auth package seems to be abandoned. For context, I'm used to develop with Laravel plain html, and now I want to separate front-end with Svelte and back-end with Laravel, as because I'm used to it. The questions is: Is it ok to just use Sanctum package? I know it's not really jwt token, but seems to do the job.

    jwt-auth provides a simple means of authentication within Laravel using JSON Web Tokens. JSON Web Token (JWT) is a compact, URL-safe means of representing claims to be transferred between two parties. The claims in a JWT are encoded as a JSON object that is used as the payload of a JSON Web Signature (JWS) structure or as the plaintext of a JSON Web Encryption (JWE) structure, enabling the claims to be digitally signed or integrity protected with a Message Authentication Code (MAC) and/or encrypted.
