Currently there are facebook and twitter backends are available. Please help to implement new backends.
Implementing backend classes are easy. Just create a class inherits from `BaseFriendsProvider` and implement two of its methods.
See backends module for example implementations
The software design for back-ends needs to be tweaked a little. Encapsulating the allauth and social-auth behaviors in different subclasses would help.
Also a common interface for backends to load them silently is crucial. Now if there is a missing backend, we raise an error. Factory class that loads them is also very ugly.
I needed to implement this app for a real-world project with an impossible deadline, and now no time to refactor it. So if you can spend some time on the above issues, that'd be awesome.
Thanks `lizrice` for the `django-allauth` integration.
