The sfFacebookConnect plugin :

  • helps easily setup a Facebook Connect authentification on a symfony project using sfGuardUser

  • is also a good wrapper to create a Facebook application using symfony


  • Install the plugin

    $ svn co http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/sfFacebookConnectPlugin/trunk sfFacebookConnectPlugin
  • Create your application on Facebook

  • Configure your app.yml file with all the correct settings

    default values

    all: facebook: api_key: xxx api_secret: xxx api_id: xxx redirect_after_connect: false redirect_after_connect_url: '' connect_signin_url: 'sfFacebookConnectAuth/signin' app_url: '/my-app' # the facebook application canvas url guard_adapter: ~ # to customise a guard adapter js_framework: none # none, jQuery or prototype.

    It is highly recommended to use a js framework if you want a correct experience in IE
