I have looked around on the web and searched the forum, but I am looking for some advice from some of you that may have already implemented Facebook Authentication.
I have a CI site already set up with ion-auth, which I am pretty happy with, but I have not found anyone that has integrated Facebook Authentication with ion-auth. I have played with the FB SDK, and the “Facebook Ignited” (which is nothing short of brilliant), but now I need to make a decision of which avenue I should to pursue to bring my Facebook authentication to reality.
Here are the options that I have come up with.
1. Keep Ion-auth, and just modify it to accept and/or link to Facebook accounts. Ideally, this would be an perfect integration of Facebook ignited and ion-auth (which would be full of all kinds of WIN).
2. Move to another auth system, like Tank auth (It looks like other have done some FB integration with Tank)
3. Go back to my homegrown authentication (not nearly as robust as ion or tank) and re-invent the wheel that I’m sure someone has already done.
4. Some option that I haven’t thought of yet.
Before I start coding, I wanted to get some opinions, and hopefully save myself from going down the wrong path and wasting time.
