Login in with Facebook and Google in an apps using Angular 8

In this post, we will learn the step-by-step process of allowing users to log in to an application with Facebook and Gmail using Angular 8. Login with Facebook and Google makes it safe and easy for users to use applications. When a user clicks on the Login button with Facebook or Gmail, the user is navigated to Facebook or Google to give the app permission. In response, the user receives a Token key and other personal details.

Prerequisites

  • Visual Studio.
  • Basic knowledge of Angular and Web API.
  • Visual Studio Code.
  • SQL Server Management Studio

This article covers the following:

  • Create an Angular 8 Project.
  • Create a Google App and Get client Id.
  • Create a Facebook App and Get App Id.
  • Create a database and table.
  • Create a Web API Project.
  • Install Bootstrap and Add Routing.

Create an Angular 8 project by using the following command.

ng new socaillogindemo  

Open the newly created project in Visual Studio Code and install Bootstrap in this project by using the following command

npm install bootstrap --save 

Install SocialLoginModule

Now, install angular6-social-login package by using the following command

npm install angular6-social-login  

Create a Google App and Get client Id. The first thing we need is to create a Google Project to get user credentials. Go to the Google API Console and click on Credentials. Click on Create Credentials and choose OAuth client ID.

Now, open the project in visual studio code and create two components. To create the components, open terminal and use the following commands.

ng g c Login --spec=false
ng g c Dashboard --spec=false

Create a class named “socialusers” and add the following properties in the class.

export class Socialusers {  
    provider: string;  
    id: string;  
    email: string;  
    name: string;  
    image: string;  
    token?: string;  
    idToken?: string;  
} 

Create a service named “sociallogin” to call the Web API.

Open the social login service and import the required packages and classes. Then, add the following lines of code in sociallogin.service.ts file.

    import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
    import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
    @Injectable({
      providedIn: 'root'
    })
    export class SocialloginService {
    url;
      constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

      Savesresponse(responce)
      {
        this.url =  'http://localhost:64726/Api/Login/Savesresponse';
        return this.http.post(this.url,responce);
      }
    }

**Project Structure **

Let’s check the project structure of the Angular application.

Now, open app.module.ts and import Social Login Module, Google and Facebook Login Providers, and AuthService. In this file, add the Facebook and Google client id that we generate when creating a Facebook and Google app. Then, add the following code to the file.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';  
import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';  
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';  
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';  
import { GoogleLoginProvider, FacebookLoginProvider, AuthService } from 'angular-6-social-login';  
import { SocialLoginModule, AuthServiceConfig } from 'angular-6-social-login';  
import { LoginComponent } from './login/login.component';  
import { DashboardComponent } from './dashboard/dashboard.component';  
import { AppRoutingModule } from '../app/app-routing.module';  
export function socialConfigs() {  
  const config = new AuthServiceConfig(  
    [  
      {  
        id: FacebookLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID,  
        provider: new FacebookLoginProvider('app -id')  
      },  
      {  
        id: GoogleLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID,  
        provider: new GoogleLoginProvider('app-id')  
      }  
    ]  
  );  
  return config;  
}  
@NgModule({  
  declarations: [  
    AppComponent,  
    LoginComponent,  
    DashboardComponent  
  ],  
  imports: [  
    BrowserModule,  
    HttpClientModule,  
    AppRoutingModule  
  ],  
  providers: [  
    AuthService,  
    {  
      provide: AuthServiceConfig,  
      useFactory: socialConfigs  
    }  
  ],  
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]  
})  
export class AppModule { }  

Open login.component.ts file and add the following code.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';  
import { GoogleLoginProvider, FacebookLoginProvider, AuthService } from 'angular-6-social-login';  
import { SocialLoginModule, AuthServiceConfig } from 'angular-6-social-login';  
import { Socialusers } from '../Models/socialusers'  
import { SocialloginService } from '../Service/sociallogin.service';  
import { Router, ActivatedRoute, Params } from '@angular/router';  
@Component({  
  selector: 'app-login',  
  templateUrl: './login.component.html',  
  styleUrls: ['./login.component.css']  
})  
export class LoginComponent implements OnInit {  
  response;  
    socialusers=new Socialusers();  
  constructor(  
    public OAuth: AuthService,  
    private SocialloginService: SocialloginService,  
    private router: Router  
  ) { }  

  ngOnInit() {  
  }  
  public socialSignIn(socialProvider: string) {  
    let socialPlatformProvider;  
    if (socialProvider === 'facebook') {  
      socialPlatformProvider = FacebookLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID;  
    } else if (socialProvider === 'google') {  
      socialPlatformProvider = GoogleLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID;  
    }  

    this.OAuth.signIn(socialPlatformProvider).then(socialusers => {  
      console.log(socialProvider, socialusers);  
      console.log(socialusers);  
      this.Savesresponse(socialusers);  

    });  
  }  
  Savesresponse(socialusers: Socialusers) {  

    this.SocialloginService.Savesresponse(socialusers).subscribe((res: any) => {  
      debugger;  
      console.log(res);  
      this.socialusers=res;  
      this.response = res.userDetail;  
      localStorage.setItem('socialusers', JSON.stringify( this.socialusers));  
      console.log(localStorage.setItem('socialusers', JSON.stringify(this.socialusers)));  
      this.router.navigate([`/Dashboard`]);  
    })  
  }  
}  

Open login.component.html file and add the following lines.

Next, Right-click on the model folder and add two classes — Users and Response. Now, paste the following code in these classes.

Response Class

public class Response
    {
        public string Status { set; get; }
        public string Message { set; get; }
    }

Users Class

public class Users
    {
        public string name { get; set; }
        public string email { get; set; }
        public string provider { get; set; }
        public string provideid { get; set; }
        public string image { get; set; }
        public string token { get; set; }
        public string idToken { get; set; } 
    }
}

Right-click on the Controllers folder and add a new controller. Name it as “Login controller” and add the following namespace.

using LoginApplication.Models;

Create a method in this controller to save data. Add the following code in this controller.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Web.Http;
using SocailMediaLogin.Models;
namespace SocailMediaLogin.Controllers
{
    public class LoginController : ApiController
    {
        [Route("Api/Login/Savesresponse")]
        [HttpPost]
        public object Savesresponse(Users user)
        {
            try
            {
                SocialLoginEntities DB = new SocialLoginEntities();
                Socaillogin Social= new Socaillogin();
                if (Social.TId == 0)
                {
                    Social.name = user.name;
                    Social.email = user.email;
                    Social.provideid = user.provideid;
                    Social.provider = user.provider;
                    Social.image = user.image;
                    Social.token = user.token;
                    Social.idToken = user.idToken;
                    var a=  DB.Socaillogins.Add(Social);
                    DB.SaveChanges();
                    return a;
                }
            }
            catch (Exception)
            {

                throw;
            }
            return new Response
            { Status = "Error", Message = "Invalid Data." };
        }
    }
}

Now, let’s enable Cors. Go to Tools, open NuGet Package Manager, search for Cors, and install the Microsoft.Asp.Net.WebApi.Cors package. Open Webapiconfig.cs, and add the following lines.

EnableCorsAttribute cors = new EnableCorsAttribute("*", "*", "*");
config.EnableCors(cors);

Now, go to Visual Studio Code and run the project and check the result
