fb_js_connect

Description:

fb_js_connect lets you verify and parse the cookie that Facebook Connect Javascript SDK provides. I've only tested this in Rails 3.0.1 Very, very incomplete. Use at own risk for now, sorry.

Configuration:

First create config/fb_credentials.yml and provide these two bits if info from your Facebook App.

app_id: YOUR_FACEBOOK_APP_ID
app_secret: YOUR_FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET

In application_controller.rb:

include FbJsConnect

How to use:

To see if you're currently connected to Facebook:

if current_fb_connect.connected
  return true
else
  return false
end

To get Facebook UID:

fb_uid = current_fb_connect.uid

To get Facebook Access Token:

fb_access_token = current_fb_connect.access_token

To do:

  • Call backs for Facebook Connection and Disconnection

  • Add JS Graph API calls
