A simple app to show how to use native Facebook sign-in in Ionic 2.


I assume that you know how to build an Ionic2 app and that you have registered your Facebook app with Facebook and have an APP_ID and APP_NAME

Clone this repo:

$ git clone

CD into your new folder

$ cd ionic2-native-facebook-login

Add a cordova plugin for Facebook SDK. Make sure to use your own APP_ID and APP_NAME:

$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-facebook4 --save --variable APP_ID="123456789" --variable APP_NAME="myApp"

Add inappbrowser. If your app is used on a phone without the Facebook app, authorization will happen in a browser.

$ cordova plugin add --save cordova-plugin-inappbrowser

Add the Cordova whitelist to make sure your app can talk to other sites. Notice that there is also a Content-Security-Policy in index.html. The one in this demo allows pretty much anything.

$ cordova plugin add --save cordova-plugin-whitelist 

Add your platform

$ ionic platform add android 

Finally, update node modules, build your app and run it on a device.

$ npm install
$ ionic build android
$ ionic run android    

YES. You need to run it on a device. NO, you can NOT test this in a browser with "ionic serve".
