Facebook Connect

Facebook connect for Cordova 3.x
platforms: android,ios
$ cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.FacebookConnect

This plugin allows Cordova 3.x users the ability to use the old PhoneGap Facebook Connect with the Cordova Command Line Interface (CLI)

You must first have a facebook application set up, do that here: http://developers.facebook.com/

Getting Started

Begin by installing the plugin with the Cordova CLI with your Facebook App ID:

cordova plugin add https://github.com/jbavari/cordova-facebook-connect.git --variable APP_ID="APP_ID" --variable APP_NAME="APP_NAME"


You'll need to update your project configuration.

Run this command from your platforms/android folder:

android update lib-project --target 9 --path FacebookLib/

More information about that command here.

Plugin Usage

FacebookConnect.init({appId: 'some_fb_id'});

var perms = {scope: 'email, publish_stream, read_stream, photo_upload, xmpp_login'}; FacebookConnect.login(perms, function(response){ //Handle response here. }, function(error) { //Handle error here. });

AngularJS Service

I've also included an AngularJS wrapper for the Cordova Facebook Plugin. When you install the plugin, it will place a facebookConnect.js file in the root level of your platforms www folder (platforms/ios/www or platforms/android/asset/www). You can include it optionally to use the AngularJS service $cordovaFacebook.

First include it in your index.html using the following:

<script src="facebookConnect.js"></script>

Then use it in your controllers (after including for your module) like so:

angular.module('starter.controllers', ['ngCordova.plugins.facebookConnect'])
.controller('DashCtrl', function($scope, $cordovaFacebook) {

    $scope.login = function() {
        $cordovaFacebook.init({ appId: "441248765970485", status: true, xfbml: true, version: 'v2.0'}).then(function(data) {
            alert('fb init: ' + data);
        }, function(error) {
            alert('fb fail: ' + error);

        $cordovaFacebook.login({scope: 'email, publish_stream, read_stream, photo_upload, xmpp_login'}).then(function(response){
            alert('login: ' + response);
        }, function(error) {
            alert('login error: ' + error);

    $scope.status = function status() {
        $cordovaFacebook.getLoginStatus().then(function(status) {
