express-fbauth

super simple fb auth module built to expect mongodb like api's with a persistant session much like passport

I needed a way to play with facebook that did things like passport, but allowed me to store things to different req objects, as well as send res.locals some goods.

I decided that i would implement someone elses library to handle to oauth/facebook graph stuff, why reinvent a perfectly good wheel? I chose fbgraph and from experience it's one of the better facebook graph api wrappers for node.js

npm install git+https://github.com/dhigginbotham/express-fbauth
var express = require('express');
var app = express();
 
// require fbauth 
var fbauth = require('express-fbauth');
 
// some collection you'd like to use for your authed users 
var Model = require('./some/db/collection/path');
 
// options you'll want to set...  
var options = {
  model: Model,
  prefix: "/auth/facebook"
  client_id: "CLIENT_ID",
  client_secret: "CLIENT_SECRET",
  redirect_uri: "http://localhost:3000/auth/facebook/callback",
  scope: "email, publish_actions"
  key: "optin",
  strategyfunction (profilefn) {
    // do a crud task with `mongoose` like `findAndUpdate` or `findAndCreate` 
  }
};
 
// create your `facebook` object so you can do stuff 
facebook = new fbauth(options);
 
// mount the auth routes 
facebook.mount(app);
 
// persist your session like you can in `passport.js` 
app.use(facebook.session);
