Readme

facebook-oauth-agent
Bare bones, low-level agent for authenticating with Facebook's oAuth.
Uses both a client-side and server-side library to make the oAuth handshake more understandable.
This library does not make any assumptions about your server-side architecture, allowing it to easily adapt to any setup.

Example

client.js
var Facebook = require('facebook-oauth-agent');

// Open popup
Facebook({
  client_id: client_id,
  scope: 'email'
}, function(err, code) {
  // send "code" to server.js
})

server.js
var Facebook = require('facebook-oauth-agent');

// received "code" from client
Facebook({
  code: code,
  client_id: client_id,
  client_secret: client_secret,
  redirect_uri: redirect_uri,
}, function(err, profile) {
  // "profile" will contain your facebook information
});
