Enable syncronization between Discourse Groups and Patreon rewards, and enable Patreon Social Login,
Proceed with a normal installation of a plugin.
You need to fill the following fields on Settings -> Plugins:
- Client ID
- Client Secret
- Creator's Access Token
- Creator's Refesh Token
To get those values you must have a Creator account first.
Then go to Clients & API Keys and fill the necessary info.
The Redirect URIs must be
http://<DISCOURSE BASE URL>/auth/patreon/callback, like https://meta.discourse.org/auth/patreon/callback for example.
Then you use the generated tokens to configure the plugin.
You should create Patreon Webhooks so every new pledge get's synced to Discourse ASAP.
To get it working, create a new Webhook for each trigger type and point then to
https://<DISCOURSE BASE URL>/patreon/webhook, like https://meta.discourse.org/patreon/webhook for example.
If you want to give your patrons a special treatment on your board, you can create rules between Discourse Groups and Patreon reward tiers:
This can pave the way to grant category access, titles and custom css to please your patrons!
This plugin will also enable a Social Login with Patreon, making it easier for your patron to sign up on Discourse.
This is a work in progress! Feel free to use and ask questions here, or on Meta.
