Node.js module to integrate quickly your Node app with Facebook OAuth authentication

How to use it

1. create your Facebook app on Facebook Developers

2. install FAuthentication

    npm install fauthentication

3. specify settings for FAuthentication (with settings of your Facebook app)

/* import fauthentication */
var fauthentication=require('fauthentication')
/* set FAuthentication's options (parameters of Facebook app and callbacks) */
    client_id: 'your-app-id',
    client_secret: 'your-app-secret',
    redirect_uri: 'http://your-site-domain:your-port/fauthentication/getAccessToken',
    app: app,
    callback: function(accessToken){
        console.log('now you have access token',accessToken);
            console.log('Facebook user data',user);
            // here you can save user, log in... 

4. bind the urls of your application with FAuthentication's request handlers

/*  set FAuthentication's url*/
app.get('/fauthentication/getAccessToken',fauthentication.getAccessToken) /* this must be according to `redirect_uri` settings (see above) */

5. In your login page insert a button to login and corresponding javascript function to open Facebook dialog box

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var login=function(){
  '/fauthentication/authenticate?next=/', 'Facebook Login', 'width=300px, height=300');
    <button onclick="login()">Facebook Login</button>

Try with examples

git clone fauthentication
cd fauthentication/examples/fauthentication-with-express
npm install
node app.js
// now in your browser go to http://localhost:3000/
