OmniAuth Facebook  Build Status

Facebook OAuth2 Strategy for OmniAuth 1.0.

Supports the OAuth 2.0 server-side and client-side flows. Read the Facebook docs for more details: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication

Installing

Add to your Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-facebook'

Then bundle install.

Usage

OmniAuth::Strategies::Facebook is simply a Rack middleware. Read the OmniAuth 1.0 docs for detailed instructions: https://github.com/intridea/omniauth.

Here's a quick example, adding the middleware to a Rails app in config/initializers/omniauth.rb:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :facebook, ENV['FACEBOOK_KEY'], ENV['FACEBOOK_SECRET']
end

See the example Sinatra app for full examples of both the server and client-side flows (including using the Facebook Javascript SDK).

Configuring

You can configure several options, which you pass in to the provider method via a Hash:

For example, to request email, offline_access and read_stream permissions and display the authentication page in a popup window:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :facebook, ENV['FACEBOOK_KEY'], ENV['FACEBOOK_SECRET'], 
           :scope => 'email,offline_access,read_stream', :display => 'popup'
end

Per-Request Options

If you want to set the display format on a per-request basis, you can just pass it to the OmniAuth request phase URL, for example: /auth/facebook?display=popup.

You can also pass through a state param which will be passed along to the callback url.

Custom Callback URL/Path

You can set a custom callback_url or callback_path option to override the default value. See OmniAuth::Strategy#callback_url for more details on the default.

Authentication Hash

Here's an example Authentication Hash available in request.env['omniauth.auth']:

{
  :provider => 'facebook',
  :uid => '1234567',
  :info => {
    :nickname => 'jbloggs',
    :email => 'joe@bloggs.com',
    :name => 'Joe Bloggs',
    :first_name => 'Joe',
    :last_name => 'Bloggs',
    :image => 'http://graph.facebook.com/1234567/picture?type=square',
    :urls => { :Facebook => 'http://www.facebook.com/jbloggs' },
    :location => 'Palo Alto, California'
  },
  :credentials => {
    :token => 'ABCDEF...', # OAuth 2.0 access_token, which you may wish to store
    :expires_at => 1321747205, # when the access token expires (if it expires)
    :expires => true # if you request `offline_access` this will be false
  },
  :extra => {
    :raw_info => {
      :id => '1234567',
      :name => 'Joe Bloggs',
      :first_name => 'Joe',
      :last_name => 'Bloggs',
      :link => 'http://www.facebook.com/jbloggs',
      :username => 'jbloggs',
      :location => { :id => '123456789', :name => 'Palo Alto, California' },
      :gender => 'male',
      :email => 'joe@bloggs.com',
      :timezone => -8,
      :locale => 'en_US',
      :verified => true,
      :updated_time => '2011-11-11T06:21:03+0000'
    }
  }
}

The precise information available may depend on the permissions which you request.

Client-side Flow

The client-side flow supports parsing the authorization code from the signed request which Facebook puts into a cookie. This means you can to use the Facebook Javascript SDK as you would normally, and you just hit the callback endpoint (/auth/facebook/callback by default) once the user has authenticated in the FB.login success callback.

See the example Sinatra app under example/ for more details.

Supported Rubies

Actively tested with the following Ruby versions:

  • MRI 1.9.3
  • MRI 1.9.2
  • MRI 1.8.7
  • JRuby 1.6.5

NB. For JRuby, you'll need to install the jruby-openssl gem. There's no way to automatically specify this in a Rubygem gemspec, so you need to manually add it your project's own Gemfile:

gem 'jruby-openssl', :platform => :jruby
