    For the server side, I'll use the OAuth 2.0 server library. The implementation here is more complex, as there are many moving parts that need to be in place.

    I looked at the phpleague oauth2-server and there, they say that a SPA (front end in angular or react) should use Authorization code grant and not password grant (it seems password grant is not recommended to use anymore).

    Laravel Passport facilitates full OAuth2 server implementation for Laravel Apps in less time. Developing an OAuth2 server from scratch can be tedious and time-consuming, but Laravel Passport is a local OAuth 2 server for Laravel apps. The Laravel Passport package embodies routes, middleware, and database migrations to develop an authorization server that will return access tokens for giving access permission to server resources. It uses the League OAuth2 Server package as a dependency and has a straightforward, easy-to-learn, and easy-to-implement language structure.

    I completely agree with this!! Sometimes there's too much hubris in OSS; classes made final, methods made private- because the author has made their mind up about how the library should work and be used. But sometimes it's not possible to imagine every use case. If software is extensible and someone breaks their app by extending your library and doing something wrong, that's their problem. Take a look at this for example: here the authors don't want to make it more extensible because some people might encode too many claims into their tokens and run into problems with header size. Ffs get off your high horse and let people use their own judgement !! /rant

    Otherwise, if I need something larger, then I would go towards OAuth and than in particular OAuth2 from the PHP league. It provides a good framework to work with to implement authentication in your project. Setting up is a bit of work, but when it works, you don't need to look at it again.
