Installation of the code from Google

Generate HTML code

Install Composer:

$ sudo apt install composer

At the root of the website, edit the file compose.json:

    "require": {
        "google/apiclient": "^2.15"
    "scripts": {
        "pre-autoload-dump": "Google\\Task\\Composer::cleanup"
    "extra": {
        "google/apiclient-services": [

Install the API keeping just the Oauth2 component:

$ composer update

All the code is in the directory vendor.

NOTE: Add the file composer.json to Git. Add the directory vendor and the file composer.lock in .gitignore. If you use rsync to sync the development site with the production site, exclude the folder vendor and the file composer.lock and run a composer update on the production site after an update of the file composer.json.


Try to log in the website with Google using the test email.

IMPORTANT: The parameter $with_google in the blocks login and register is true if $googlecreditid isn't false.
