So just recently I decided I would rather use the “Sign-In With Google” feature, rather than trying to recreate a user system on my end. I followed the information on Google’s site to create my client id and then went to work trying to log in.
It didn’t work, I wasn’t able to log in, and I was confused. The Google pop-up window kept telling me that my server was not configured to send requests. However, checking the white list in my developer console showed that I had added my local machine to the white list.
Persisting The Logged In User
Other than those odd bits of info, getting set up with Google sign in was quick and painless.
