Facebook OAuth Login Using CakePHP

Posted by & filed under CakePHP, MYSQL, PHP.

In this tutorial we are going to see how to implement facebook login in cakephp. In one of my previous tutorial I had implemented Facebook OAuth Login using PHP, where I had berifly explained Facebook app creation and integration. I will helpful for you to refer that tutorials before continuing this.

Here is my previous tutorials on Facebook login.

Facebook OAuth Login Using CakePHP

Create Facebook Application:

In Facebook login integration using CakePHP first and foremost thing we need to is to create Facebook Application to get Facebook App ID and App Secret. I had briefly explained creation of Facebook Application on Facebook OAuth 2 Login Using PHP Tutorial. So please follow the step 1 & step 2 of this tutorial to create Facebook Application. Here is the Link.

Login With Facebook Using PHP

Once you completed Step 1 & step 2 of the above tutorial successfully, then you will get Facebook App ID and App Secret to integrate Facebook login in your CakePHP webapplication.

Crate Sample Table For Facebook Login Using CakePHP:

Create following sample users table in your Database for this cakephp login with google.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `users` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `first_name` varchar(60) DEFAULT NULL,
  `last_name` varchar(60) DEFAULT NULL,
  `email` varchar(80) DEFAULT NULL,
  `password` varchar(64) DEFAULT NULL,
  `social_id` varchar(45) DEFAULT NULL,
  `picture` varchar(100) DEFAULT NULL,
  `gender` char(1) DEFAULT NULL,
  `created` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
  `updated` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
  `uuid` varchar(70) DEFAULT NULL,
  `status` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  KEY `email_idx` (`email`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=1 ;

 

 

Facebook Login Integration In CakePHP:

To integrate Facebook Login in your CakePHP Webapplications, we need Facebook PHP SDK to make OAuth request to Facebook. I have downloaded recent version Facebook PHP SDK from Facebook.

Note : It’s best advisable to use Facebook PHP SDK i had used in this tutorial to successfully integrate Facebook login in your CakePHP webapplication. Please download source file using above download link.

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/php/gettingstarted/4.0.0

Now I have created a folder name fb in the app/Vendor directory, then from downloaded Facebook PHP SDK copied only src directory and autoload.php file and pasted it in the app/Vendor/fb directory. Now it is app/Vendor/fb/src..

Include Facebook PHP SDK In Your CakePHP Application:

Create site_config.php file in the app/Config directory to keep all your application wide constants. Here is my site_config.php file. Where please replace your app id and app secret.

<?php
require_once 'messages.php';
//db config
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
define('DB_NAME', 'cakelogin');
define('DB_USER', 'root');
define('DB_PASS', '');
define('DB_PREFIX', '');
//site config
define('BASE_PATH', 'http://localhost/cakelogin/');


//Social Logins
define('FACEBOOK_APP_ID', 'YOUR APP_ID');
define('FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET', 'YOUR APP_SECRET');
define('FACEBOOK_REDIRECT_URI', 'http://localhost/cakelogin/fb_login');

Please include this site_config.php file in your bootstrap.php file in the app/Config directory.

Before we are going to make any OAuth API request to Facebook we must include that Facebook PHP SDK in our file. For that I am creating fb.php file in the app/Config directory and including following files. Here is my fb.php file.

<?php

define('FACEBOOK_SDK_V4_SRC_DIR','../Vendor/fb/src/Facebook/');
require_once("../Vendor/fb/autoload.php");

use Facebook\FacebookSession;
use Facebook\FacebookRedirectLoginHelper;
use Facebook\FacebookRequest;
use Facebook\FacebookResponse;
use Facebook\FacebookSDKException;
use Facebook\FacebookRequestException;
use Facebook\FacebookAuthorizationException;
use Facebook\GraphObject;
use Facebook\GraphUser;
use Facebook\GraphSessionInfo;

Note: If it throughs FacebookSession class not found error, then copy above lines and include in your UsersController.php file at the top.

OR

<?php
define('FACEBOOK_SDK_V4_SRC_DIR','../Vendor/fb/src/Facebook/');
require_once("../Vendor/fb/autoload.php");
use Facebook\FacebookSession;
use Facebook\FacebookRedirectLoginHelper;
use Facebook\FacebookRequest;
use Facebook\FacebookResponse;
use Facebook\FacebookSDKException;
use Facebook\FacebookRequestException;
use Facebook\FacebookAuthorizationException;
use Facebook\GraphObject;
use Facebook\GraphUser;
use Facebook\GraphSessionInfo;

class UsersController extends AppController
{
//
}

Use only either one of the method to add Facebook PHP SDK in your CakePHP webapplication.

Making Facebook Oauth API Request:

To make Facebook OAuth Login API request as well as handle Facebook OAuth response I am creating following two functions. where fblogin() function which makes Facebook OAuth login request, and fb_login() function which handles Facebook OAuth login response from the Facebook.

This following two functions I had kept it in UsersController.php file. So here is the my CakePHP scripts of the two functions.

Note : I had directly included Facebook PHP SDK files at the top of the UsersController

/**
 * Facebook Login
 */

public function fblogin()
{
	$this->autoRender = false;
	if (session_status() == PHP_SESSION_NONE) {
		session_start();
	}
	FacebookSession::setDefaultApplication(FACEBOOK_APP_ID, FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET);
	$helper = new FacebookRedirectLoginHelper(FACEBOOK_REDIRECT_URI);
	$url = $helper->getLoginUrl(array('email'));
	$this->redirect($url);
}

public function fb_login()
{
	$this->layout = 'ajax';
	FacebookSession::setDefaultApplication(FACEBOOK_APP_ID, FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET);
	$helper = new FacebookRedirectLoginHelper(FACEBOOK_REDIRECT_URI);
	$session = $helper->getSessionFromRedirect();

	if(isset($_SESSION['token'])){
		$session = new FacebookSession($_SESSION['token']);
		try{
			$session->validate(FACEBOOK_APP_ID, FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET);
		}catch(FacebookAuthorizationException $e){
			echo $e->getMessage();
		}
	}

	$data = array();
	$fb_data = array();

	if(isset($session)){
		$_SESSION['token'] = $session->getToken();
		$request = new FacebookRequest($session, 'GET', '/me');
		$response = $request->execute();
		$graph = $response->getGraphObject(GraphUser::className());

		$fb_data = $graph->asArray();
		$id = $graph->getId();
		$image = "https://graph.facebook.com/".$id."/picture?width=100";

		if( !empty( $fb_data )){
			$result = $this->User->findByEmail( $fb_data['email'] );
			if(!empty( $result )){
				if($this->Auth->login($result['User'])){
					$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_SUCCESS, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message success'), 'success' );
					$this->redirect(BASE_PATH);
				}else{
					$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_FAILURE, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message error'), 'error' );
					$this->redirect(BASE_PATH.'login');
				}

			}else{
				$data['email'] = $fb_data['email'];
				$data['first_name'] = $fb_data['first_name'];
				$data['social_id'] = $fb_data['id'];
				$data['picture'] = $image;
				$data['uuid'] = String::uuid ();
				$this->User->save( $data );
				if($this->User->save( $data )){
					$data['id'] = $this->User->getLastInsertID();
					if($this->Auth->login($data)){
						$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_SUCCESS, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message success'), 'success' );
						$this->redirect(BASE_PATH);
					}else{
						$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_FAILURE, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message error'), 'error' );
						$this->redirect(BASE_PATH.'index');
					}

				}else{
					$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_FAILURE, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message error'), 'error' );
					$this->redirect(BASE_PATH.'index');
				}
			}




		}else{
			$this->Session->setFlash(FACEBOOK_LOGIN_FAILURE, 'default', array( 'class' => 'message error'), 'error' );
			$this->redirect(BASE_PATH.'index');
		}


	}
}

CakePHP Facebook Login Auth Link:

Finally we need to give Facebook Login link to user to use Facebook login. Here is my html markup.

<a class="btn btn-default facebook" href="<?php echo BASE_PATH.'fblogin'; ?>"> <i class="fa fa-facebook modal-icons"></i> Signin with Facebook </a>

CakePHP Routing for Google Login:

I had modified url string for our Facebook login to look nice. So please add the following lines of code in your routes.php file in the app/Config directory.

Router::connect('/fb_login', array('controller' => 'users', 'action' => 'fb_login'));
Router::connect('/fblogin', array('controller' => 'users', 'action' => 'fblogin'));

CakePHP Auth Allow() for Google Login:

Final thing we need to allow user to access following two functions fblogin() and fb_login() without logging in our system in the beforeFilter() of UsersController.

public function beforeFilter()
{
      $this->Auth->allow('fblogin', 'fb_login');
      parent::beforeFilter();
}
