    suppose if I use firebase for integrating facebook, will that use browser facebook or native facebook app on mobile?

  • C.k

    I have some confuse about wondering does this social login plugin support user login by using account has login in social mobile app (facebook, gmail …) so this mean just open dialog ACCEPT then not require user need type login info (username/email, password) again.

    In case you are planning on using Facebook login:

    I strongly advice users not to use the inappbrowser plugin as described by this article.

    Instead, use the cordova plugin.

    Very easy to combine with Firebase, example explained here:

    This will result in a much smoother user experience as it uses the native Facebook app, and reverts back to browser in case Facebook app is not installed.

    I’m using firebase and ionic for a while now. The combination is awesome. Denormalized data can be though sometimes though.

    I’m using the email/password login system but I have a separate collection in firebase that holds additional data for every email address. I would like to log in and then pull in the extra data corresponding to that email address, I was wondering if any one could make a tutorial for this specific scenario. Or if someone could direct me to a similar solution online. Thanks.

    I get this error when the popup box comes up

    Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App’s settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App’s domains.

    Wow, great article. I was finally able to get social logins working with Ionic/Firebase on an Android. However, because there are so many different ways of testing/emulating Ionic apps, I found that it doesn’t work in all cases. The one that concerns me the most, is that I can’t get the Ionic View version working on my iPad. It seems to redirect to the login screen for the various providers (Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Github); but after logging in, it goes back to a blank screen, and never comes back. I’d really like to figure out how to get this to work, as I’m developing on a PC, and can only use Ionic View to show my apps on apple devices.

    Also, in Ionic serve (browser testing), I need to do a refresh after logging into the provider. Not a big deal; but a little annoying. Finally, when I use the new ionic serve –lab, when it tries to redirect to the provider page, it says Content can’t be shown in a frame. Unfortunately, it seems that the providers are setting the X-Frame-Options tag in the headers to DENY. Not sure if there is a way around this.

      i am trying to add login using the same tutorial, and i am getting a blank page after login. I find that u are also had the same issue. Can you please let me know how you resolve this

        I’ve been able to get the user login working for all cases except running on Ionic view with an apple device. For my login function, I used the Firebase function: $authWithPassword, instead of $authWithOAuthPopup, used in this article. For a full working example see this github repositiory: It has samples of user authorization working in a web app, and Ionic app. For the apple app, I tested for the device running the app, and disabled login using social media if it was running iOS, since I wasn’t able to get that working.
