Social Login with Cognito


#1

Do you have any guidance on integrating social login (i.e. Facebook) via Cognito identity provider into this solution?

Ooh this is great timing. We just published a chapter on this:

Thanks Jay! I was able to set up facebook login using your docs. I must note on the docs, there was a typo in the config parameter in app.js (config.social.facebook rather than config.social.FB) and it needed to state to include the config file on top. The code in gihub contains the correct information. I also noticed that it creates a separate ‘user’ (as shown in DynamoDB) than the one in my user pool even though I’m using the same email. Is there a way to synch those users with the same email? Also, when I refresh the page it kills the session and makes me log in again. if I log in using the user in the user pool refresh maintains the session. Otherwise I would have to say this is one of the best end-to-end serverless tutorials I have come across!
