Facebook authentication plugin for Plone

Project description


A PAS plugin to login into a Plone Site using Facebook.

Installation and getting started

Add ‘cs.auth.facebook’ to your buildout.cfg’s eggs list.

You have to add a configuration similar to this to your buildout.cfg:

zope-conf-additional =
   <product-config beaker>
       session type     file
       session.data_dir ${buildout:directory}/var/sessions/data
       session.lock_dir ${buildout:directory}/var/sessions/lock
       session.key      beaker.session
       session.secret   this-is-my-secret-${buildout:directory}

This is needed because we are using collective.beaker to handle Facebook login session information.

Install the product in the Plone Control Panel

Create a new Facebook app at and fill in the required data in the plugin’s control panel form.


This product re-distributes a lot of code written by Martin Aspeli (aka @optilude) in his book “Professional Plone 4 Development” and available under GPL license in his personal GitHub account with the name ‘optilux.facebookauth’:
