This is passport-facebook-token but transpiled with @babel-plugin-transform-classes so now it works with Nest.js as expected

Why? Nest.js PassportStrategy expects a function, not a class


```html import { Strategy } from 'passport-facebook-token-nest'; export class FacebookStrategy extends PassportStrategy(Strategy, 'facebook'){} ```

Below is description of the original package

Build Status Coverage Downloads Downloads npm version License Commitizen friendly dependencies dev dependencies Passport strategy for authenticating with Facebook access tokens using the OAuth 2.0 API. This module lets you authenticate using Facebook in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Facebook authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.


$ npm install passport-facebook-token


Configure Strategy

The Facebook authentication strategy authenticates users using a Facebook account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a app ID and app secret. ```js var FacebookTokenStrategy = require("passport-facebook-token"); passport.use( new FacebookTokenStrategy(
fbGraphVersion: "v3.0",
function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
User.findOrCreate({ facebookId: }, function(error, user) {
return done(error, user);
) ); ```

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'facebook-token' strategy, to authenticate requests. ```js "/auth/facebook/token", passport.authenticate("facebook-token"), function(req, res) {
// do something with req.user
res.send(req.user ? 200 : 401);
} ); ``` Or using Sails framework: ```javascript // api/controllers/AuthController.js module.exports = { facebook: function(req, res) {
passport.authenticate("facebook-token", function(error, user, info) {
// do stuff with user
})(req, res);
}, }; ```

Client Requests

Clients can send requests to routes that use passport-facebook-token authentication using query parms, body, or HTTP headers. Clients will need to transmit the access_token and optionally the refresh_token that are received from facebook after login.

Sending accesstoken as a Query parameter

``` GET /auth/facebook/token?accesstoken=HERE> ```

Sending access token as an HTTP header

Clients can choose to send the access token using the Oauth2 Bearer token (RFC 6750) compliant format ``` GET /resource HTTP/1.1 Host: Authorization: Bearer base64accesstokenstring ``` optionally a client can send via a custom (default accesstoken) header ``` GET /resource HTTP/1.1 Host: accesstoken: base64accesstokenstring ```

Sending access token as an HTTP body

Clients can transmit the access token via the body ``` POST /resource HTTP/1.1 Host: accesstoken=base64accesstokenstring ```
