Facebook SDK Grails Plugin

Build Status

Introduction

The Facebook Platform is a set of APIs that make your application more social. Read more about integrating Facebook with your web site on the Facebook developer site.

This project contains the open source Grails Facebook SDK Plugin that allows you to integrate the Facebook Platform on a website/app powered by Grails.

This plugin is a port of the official Facebook PHP SDK V3.1.1 to Grails 2.0.

It supports the latest OAuth2.0 authentication (required since October 1st 2011).

Grails Facebook SDK Plugin provides the following Grails artefacts:

Installation

Declare the plugin dependency in the BuildConfig.groovvy file, as shown here:

grails.project.dependency.resolution = {
        inherits("global") { }
        log "info"
        repositories {
                //your repositories
        }
        dependencies {
                //your regular dependencies
        }
        plugins {
                //here go your plugin dependencies
                runtime ':facebook-sdk:0.6.2'
        }
}

Config

Create a Facebook app on Facebook Developers, in order to get your own app ID and app secret.

Add your Facebook app parameters to your grails-app/conf/Config.groovy:

grails.plugin.facebooksdk.app.id = {APP_ID}
grails.plugin.facebooksdk.app.permissions = {APP_PERMISSIONS} // Ex. ['email','user_photos']
grails.plugin.facebooksdk.app.secret = {APP_SECRET}

Since FacebookContext should be instantiated at each request, you must use prototype scope for your Controllers (since Grails 2.3, generated Config.groovy defines singleton as default scope).

grails.controllers.defaultScope = 'prototype'

Default jQuery selector is $, if you require another one, you can define it globally in your grails-app/conf/Config.groovy:

grails.plugin.facebooksdk.customSelector = 'jQuery'

Getting started with a demo app

If you want to quickly run the SDK on a demo app, you can download Facebook SDK Grails - Demo.
