Lift-Omniauth Module

Usage

in Boot.scala

import omniauth.lib._
...
//Add Omniauth to the sitemap
Omniauth.sitemap
//init
//Supply a list of providers
Omniauth.initWithProviders(List(new FacebookProvider("key", "secret")))
//or init with providers in properties
Omniauth.init

define your client id (key) and secret for each provider you will use in your props file(s) or as JVM system properties

omniauth.facebooksecret=...
omniauth.facebookkey=...

set the base URL for your application

omniauth.baseurl=http://localhost:8080/

set the success and failure URLs

omniauth.successurl=/
omniauth.failureurl=/error

For Facebook provider you can set permissions. For example:

omniauth.facebookpermissions=email,read_stream

Redirect the user to the auth URL in your application:

S.redirectTo("/auth/facebook/signin")

You can optionally specify where the user should return to after successful authentication:

S.redirectTo("/auth/facebook/signin?returnTo=%2Ftimeline%3FshowComments%3Dtrue")

After a user has logged into an auth provider you can access data through the session var Omniauth.currentAuth

Omniauth.currentAuth match {
  case Full(auth:AuthInfo) => 
  case _ =>
}

You can also use obtain a user's unique ID from a provider without using sessions using Omniauth.tokenToId(provider:String, token:String): Box[String]

Omniauth.tokenToId("facebook", token) match {
  case Full(uid) => user.doSomethingWithFacebookId(uid)
}

Finally redirect the user back to the appropriate place in the application, using the optional returnTo variable:

val url = Omniauth.returnTo.openOr("/")
S.redirectTo(url)

Installation
