Integrating Google Sign-In using listeners

Listeners provide a way to automatically respond to changes in the current user's Sign-In session. For example, after your startup method initializes the Google Sign-In auth2 object, you can set up listeners to respond to events like auth2.isSignedIn state changes, or changes in auth2.currentUser.

The following code demonstrates using the 2.0 client method listen() to respond to changes in auth2.isSignedIn and auth2.currentUser.

var auth2; // The Sign-In object.
var googleUser; // The current user.

/**
 * Calls startAuth after Sign in V2 finishes setting up.
 */
var appStart = function() {
  gapi.load('auth2', initSigninV2);
};

/**
 * Initializes Signin v2 and sets up listeners.
 */
var initSigninV2 = function() {
  auth2 = gapi.auth2.init({
      client_id: 'CLIENT_ID.apps.googleusercontent.com',
      scope: 'profile'
  });

  // Listen for sign-in state changes.
  auth2.isSignedIn.listen(signinChanged);

  // Listen for changes to current user.
  auth2.currentUser.listen(userChanged);

  // Sign in the user if they are currently signed in.
  if (auth2.isSignedIn.get() == true) {
    auth2.signIn();
  }

  // Start with the current live values.
  refreshValues();
};

/**
 * Listener method for sign-out live value.
 *
 * @param {boolean} val the updated signed out state.
 */
var signinChanged = function (val) {
  console.log('Signin state changed to ', val);
  document.getElementById('signed-in-cell').innerText = val;
};

/**
 * Listener method for when the user changes.
 *
 * @param {GoogleUser} user the updated user.
 */
var userChanged = function (user) {
  console.log('User now: ', user);
  googleUser = user;
  updateGoogleUser();
  document.getElementById('curr-user-cell').innerText =
    JSON.stringify(user, undefined, 2);
};

/**
 * Updates the properties in the Google User table using the current user.
 */
var updateGoogleUser = function () {
  if (googleUser) {
    document.getElementById('user-id').innerText = googleUser.getId();
    document.getElementById('user-scopes').innerText =
      googleUser.getGrantedScopes();
    document.getElementById('auth-response').innerText =
      JSON.stringify(googleUser.getAuthResponse(), undefined, 2);
  } else {
    document.getElementById('user-id').innerText = '--';
    document.getElementById('user-scopes').innerText = '--';
    document.getElementById('auth-response').innerText = '--';
  }
};

/**
 * Retrieves the current user and signed in states from the GoogleAuth
 * object.
 */
var refreshValues = function() {
  if (auth2){
    console.log('Refreshing values...');

    googleUser = auth2.currentUser.get();

    document.getElementById('curr-user-cell').innerText =
      JSON.stringify(googleUser, undefined, 2);
    document.getElementById('signed-in-cell').innerText =
      auth2.isSignedIn.get();

    updateGoogleUser();
  }
}
