Social login notes

Social login notes

Various links that are associated with the social login for different providers, ie: Facebook and Google


Mote: Facebook authentication is based on the access_token that gets changed from time to time.
keeping the access_token secured and using only the token provided the application itself is the application's task.


Note: Google's authentication is based on the one time code that the server sends to the Google directly to authenticate.
Details could be found in the Serverside flow below.

Generic OAuth

At this point, I felt to much burden of handling many OAuth differently for Angular directly not JS, while I'm not really interested yet in posting and other permissions, and with a new search I came up with that Satellizer project which provides all social signIn services for different providers.
