    Social sing-in module for Angular that supports Facebook, Google and other providers in the near future.

    Check the demo app!

    Design gooals are

    • make it lazy, do not load the various 3rd API scripts until it's necessary;
    • make it possible to fetch user details in either server side or client side;
    • events for both provider specific and global sign-in status;
    • clean API;
    • use the 3rd party provided API whenever possible.

    Supported providers:

    • Facebook
    • Google

    Planned support:

    • Twitter
    • Github
    • Microsoft


    First as usual add [ngx-social-sign-in][npm-page] to your project as a dependency.

    With NPM:

    npm install --save "@zsoltm/ngx-social-sign-in"

    or with yarn:

    yarn add "@zsoltm/ngx-social-sign-in"

    Once you have the dependencies the main module has to be imported in your app's module, and you need to provide a configuration for each 3rd party provider you want to use:

        imports: [ SocialSignInModule /* , ... */ ], // import module
        providers: [{
          provide: SignInServiceConfig,
          useValue: {
            providers: {
              facebook: { appId: "... your app id ..." },
              google: { client_id: "[your client id]" } // ,
              // other providers...
          } as SignInServiceConfig

    Then in a component for example you could inject the main SignInService and subscribe to the status:

    import { SocialSignInService, GlobalSignInStatus } from "@zsoltm/ngx-social-sign-in";
    @Component({ /* ... */ })
    export class AppComponent implements OnInit, OnDestroy {
        constructor(private readonly _signInService: SocialSignInService) {}
        ngOnInit() {
            this._signInStatus = this._signInService.signInStatus().subscribe((status) => { // as GlobalSignInStatus
                // do something with the status e.g. submit it to backend to obtain a longer term access token
                // in exchange for lets say a JWT token.
        /** Don't forget unsubscribe, unless you'll leave a memory leak: */
        ngOnDestroy() {
            if (this._signInStatus) this._signInStatus.unsubscribe();

    The status is stream which emits a new SignInStatus value on every change, e.g. when the user logs in or logs out. It has a key for each configured provider, so for instance it could look like this:

      "google": {
        "id": "eyJhbGciOiJSU ...",
        "token": "ya29.GlwEBpBnVddU .... Jrq8QPYl3lx5f_H3vVFNknD3F0"
      "facebook": {
        "id": "4444444444444444",
        "token": "EAAe ... BgZDZD"

    To initiate a sign-in with a particular provider just call signIn() on a SignInService which can be obtained from the main SocialSignInService:

    import { SocialSignInService, FacebookSignInService } from "@zsoltm/social-sign-in";
    @Component({ /* ... */ })
    export class AppComponent {
        constructor(private readonly _signInService: SocialSignInService) {}
        signInWithFacebook() {
                .subscribe((signInToken) => { /* ... */ });

    ... or the particular implementation can be also injected to the component, and can be used directly:

    import { FacebookSignInService } from "@zsoltm/social-sign-in";
    @Component({ /* ... */ })
    export class GoogleSignInComponent {
        constructor(private readonly _googleSignInService: GoogleSignInService) {} // service injected directly
        signIn() {
            this._googleSignInService.signIn().subscribe((signInToken) => { /* ... */ });

    Feel free to play around with the demo application in the repo.



    Apart from the usual configuration make sure you configure URIs properly:

    1. Go to your facebook app console
    2. Go to Settings -> Basic. In Site URL type your url, even if localhost. For example: http://localhost:4200
    3. Go to Settings -> Advanced. In Valid OAuth redirect URIs type your url, even if localhost. For example: http://localhost:4200

    Otherwise you might experience weird issues, like redirects to the facebook home page.



    • regular Angular development dependencies
    • yarn package manager

    It's a monorepo; with an Angular test application, after unchecking run

    git submodules update # this will get the spectre CSS framework for demo app
    yarn install --frozen-lockfile # install dependencies
    yarn ng build social-sign-in # build module in /dist
    yarn start # launch the example application


    npm i @zsoltm/ngx-social-sign-in
