JSON Web Token Authentication for Lumen REBOOT

Learn how to implement JWT authentication in your Lumen application the proper way.



Introduction

I see that a lot of you are having problems with my blog post on JSON Web Token Authentication for Lumen. I've been reading all comments and emails about it, but because this post was written more than one year ago I decided to reboot the whole post instead of trying to fix issues that have been piling on.

At the time when I wrote that post you could actually follow along and get the wanted result, but packages changed/updated, new versions of Lumen released and things broke.

So, for this lesson I will be using Lumen 5.3 (which is the latest Lumen version released at the time of this lesson) with tymondesigns/jwt-auth package version 1.0.0-alpha.3 to implement JWT authentication in Lumen.
