We are discontinuing the Google Sign-In JavaScript Platform Library for web. For authentication and user sign-in, use the new Google Identity Services SDKs for both Web and Android instead.

Building a custom Google Sign-In button

To create a Google Sign-In button with custom settings, add an element to contain the sign-in button to your sign-in page, write a function that calls signin2.render() with your style and scope settings, and include the https://apis.google.com/js/platform.js script with the query string onload=YOUR_RENDER_FUNCTION.

The following is an example of a Google Sign-In button that specifies custom style parameters:

The following HTML, JavaScript, and CSS code produces the button above:

<html>
<head>
  <meta name="google-signin-client_id" content="YOUR_CLIENT_ID.apps.googleusercontent.com">
</head>
<body>
  <div id="my-signin2"></div>
  <script>
    function onSuccess(googleUser) {
      console.log('Logged in as: ' + googleUser.getBasicProfile().getName());
    }
    function onFailure(error) {
      console.log(error);
    }
    function renderButton() {
      gapi.signin2.render('my-signin2', {
        'scope': 'profile email',
        'width': 240,
        'height': 50,
        'longtitle': true,
        'theme': 'dark',
        'onsuccess': onSuccess,
        'onfailure': onFailure
      });
    }
  </script>

  <script src="https://apis.google.com/js/platform.js?onload=renderButton" async defer></script>
</body>
</html>

You can also specify settings for a custom Google Sign-In button by defining data- attributes to a div element with the class g-signin2. For example:

<div class="g-signin2" data-width="300" data-height="200" data-longtitle="true">

Building a button with a custom graphic

You can build a Google Sign-In button to fit your site's design. You must follow the branding guidelines and use the appropriate colors and icons in your button. The branding guidelines also provide icon assets that you can use to design your button. You must also ensure that your button is as prominent as other third-party login options.

The following is an example of a Google Sign-In button built with a custom graphic:

The following HTML, JavaScript, and CSS code produces the button above:

<html>
<head>
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  <script src="https://apis.google.com/js/api:client.js"></script>
  <script>
  var googleUser = {};
  var startApp = function() {
    gapi.load('auth2', function(){
      // Retrieve the singleton for the GoogleAuth library and set up the client.
      auth2 = gapi.auth2.init({
        client_id: 'YOUR_CLIENT_ID.apps.googleusercontent.com',
        cookiepolicy: 'single_host_origin',
        // Request scopes in addition to 'profile' and 'email'
        //scope: 'additional_scope'
      });
      attachSignin(document.getElementById('customBtn'));
    });
  };

  function attachSignin(element) {
    console.log(element.id);
    auth2.attachClickHandler(element, {},
        function(googleUser) {
          document.getElementById('name').innerText = "Signed in: " +
              googleUser.getBasicProfile().getName();
        }, function(error) {
          alert(JSON.stringify(error, undefined, 2));
        });
  }
  </script>
  <style type="text/css">
    #customBtn {
      display: inline-block;
      background: white;
      color: #444;
      width: 190px;
      border-radius: 5px;
      border: thin solid #888;
      box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px grey;
      white-space: nowrap;
    }
    #customBtn:hover {
      cursor: pointer;
    }
    span.label {
      font-family: serif;
      font-weight: normal;
    }
    span.icon {
      background: url('/identity/sign-in/g-normal.png') transparent 5px 50% no-repeat;
      display: inline-block;
      vertical-align: middle;
      width: 42px;
      height: 42px;
    }
    span.buttonText {
      display: inline-block;
      vertical-align: middle;
      padding-left: 42px;
      padding-right: 42px;
      font-size: 14px;
      font-weight: bold;
      /* Use the Roboto font that is loaded in the <head> */
      font-family: 'Roboto', sans-serif;
    }
  </style>
  </head>
  <body>
  <!-- In the callback, you would hide the gSignInWrapper element on a
  successful sign in -->
  <div id="gSignInWrapper">
    <span class="label">Sign in with:</span>
    <div id="customBtn" class="customGPlusSignIn">
      <span class="icon"></span>
      <span class="buttonText">Google</span>
