  To run this sample, set apiKey to your application's API key and clientId to
  your application's OAuth 2.0 client ID. They can be generated at:
  Then, add a JavaScript origin to the client that corresponds to the domain
  where you will be running the script. Finally, activate the People API at:
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Say hello using the People API</title>
    <meta charset='utf-8' />
    <p>Say hello using the People API.</p>

Hello, I have a problem with google oauth2 authorization. This is a standard example of oauth2 that work fine if executed stand alone (without the first PHP header, in a php file in the root of website https://www.xxxxx.xx/test.php). If I run it as joomla template (add the php header as the code above and move in a template folder) doesn't work. I see that after auth popup is opened the browser say 'Uncaught {error: 'popup_closed_by_user'}'; sometimes the popup is effectively close, sometimes still open but after login the listen function don't start . Can you help me, please? Thanks
