The login_from for Facebook now allows users to login using an access token directly instead of using the code parameter. This allows login via the Facebooj JS SDK (FB.login).

To easily integrate the client side behavior, you can just hijack the click on the facebook button like so (in CoffeeScript):

# assumes that the Facebook JS SDK has been loaded beforehand
$('#facebook-sign-in').on "click", (e) ->
  FB.login (response) ->
    window.location = "/auth/facebook/callback?access_token=#{response.authResponse.accessToken}&expires_in=#{response.authResponse.expiresIn}" if response.authResponse

Anyone else is using this? i'll give it a shot this week.

I don't think so, but it seems like a fairly standard use case. I've been using the code above for a while now and haven't had any issue.


I need this use case and have hacked it in to my own local copy. Would love to see this pulled.

Had to revert some of this to make tests pass again.
