Express FBAuth

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. I plan on adding in a bunch of the auth routes so it's easy to return json from internal paths -- but thats all tbd once I get this proof of concept off the ground.

Use this as you choose, submit any errors and I'll fix them :)

Usage

npm install express-fbauth

Example setup

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",
  strategy: function (profile, fn) {
    // do a crud task with `mongoose` like `findAndUpdate` or `findAndCreate`
  }
};

// create your `facebook` object so you can do stuff
var facebook = new fbauth(options);

// persist your session like you can in `passport.js`
app.use(facebook.session);

// mount the auth routes
facebook.mount(app);

You'll receive some routes based on this:

http://localhost:3000/auth/facebook
http://localhost:3000/auth/facebook/logout

Options

Key Default Description
model null The users/optins model you want to use
prefix /auth/facebook route prefix, ie http://localhost:3000/auth/facebook
logout /auth/facebook/logout defaults to prefix + /logout
redirect_uri http://localhost:3000/auth/facebook/callback use full url path
callback_uri /callback use last path ie /callback
client_id null use the one from your facebook app
key null almost anything works, however I am not sanitizing yet
client_secret null use the one from your facebook app
scope email, publish_actions see facebook docs for full list of scope/perms
strategy null finally, your end-point, the little guy that goes in and finds, updates or creates something
