Enables sign-in via Facebook via the server side passport middleware. Requires creating and registering a login app with Facebook.

Configuration:

  • TALK_FACEBOOK_APP_ID (required) - The Facebook App ID for your Facebook Login enabled app. This is only required while the talk-plugin-facebook-auth plugin is enabled.
  • TALK_FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET (required) - The Facebook App Secret for your Facebook Login enabled app. This is only required while the talk-plugin-facebook-auth plugin is enabled.

You can learn more about getting a Facebook App ID at the Facebook Developers Portal or by visiting their Creating an App ID guide.

Setting up your Facebook app:

  • Go to Facebook Developers Portal and click on Getting Started or My Apps
  • Create a new app > set the App Name and Email to create an app id
  • Confirm that you are not a robot, then configure the app as follows:
  • In Settings > Basic:
    • add app domains (your Talk domain)
    • add a link to your privacy policy
    • add a link to your terms of service
  • In Settings > Advanced:
    • turn on “Require App Secret”
  • Add a “Product” (Under “Products” click + to add a Product):
    • Setup “Facebook Login”
    • choose www
    • enter your Talk domain url
    • click Next several times to get through the add code steps (You do not need to modify any code, the plugin takes care of this part for you.)
  • Under Product Settings:
    • set Valid OAuth Redirect URIs to your callback url (Use your Talk domain with this endpoint: /api/v1/auth/facebook/callback)
    • Locate your App Id and App Secret, set these as config vars on your instance of Talk
  • Toggle the “Live” button on the top bar to make app live

NOTE: Facebook auth requires your site to use https (SSL) not http. If your site is not https you can not use this plugin!
