Social Media Authentication In Angular


Social login uses existing login information from a social network provider (i.e. Facebook, Linkedin or Google, etc…) The user can sign into a third-party website instead of creating a new account specifically on that website.

Step 1:

Create an you angular app using following command .

Step 2:

Open the above created project in Visual Studio code and install the npm using this command.

“ npm i angular-6-social-login”

Step 3:

Once you install the npm file, add a reference to your app.module.ts file

import {SocialLoginModule, AuthServiceConfig,GoogleLoginProvider,FacebookLoginProvider,}
from "angular-6-social-login";

Once you have credited the app by enabling Gmail, select OAuth client. After generating your client ID, refer to the below screenshot:

Step 4 :

Once you get the Facebook ID and the Google account ID, you can paste the app.module.ts code:

let config = new AuthServiceConfig(
      id: FacebookLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID,
      provider: new FacebookLoginProvider("Your App Id")
      id: GoogleLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID,
      provider: new GoogleLoginProvider("Your Client Id")
  export function getAuthServiceConfigs() {
    return config;

Step 5 :

You can add the service config file provided below.

 providers: [
      provide: AuthServiceConfig,
      useFactory: getAuthServiceConfigs

Providers – Services present in one of the modules which is to be used in the other modules or components. Once a service is included in the providers it becomes accessible in all parts of that application.

Step 6 :

Open your appcomponent.ts, add the reference file using the below code:

import { AuthService,FacebookLoginProvider,GoogleLoginProvider,} from 'angular-6-social-login';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'SocialMediaAuthentication';

Step 7:

The next step is to add an app.component.html file by pasting the below code.

<img src="{{userimage}}">
              <div class="wrap-input100 validate-input m-b-23" data-validate = "Username is reauired">
                  <span class="label-input100">Username</span>
                  <input class="input100" id="name" id="name" type="text" [(ngModel)]="username" name="username" placeholder="Type your username">
                  <span class="focus-input100" data-symbol=""></span>

              <div class="wrap-input100 validate-input" data-validate="Password is required">
                  <span class="label-input100">Password</span>
                  <input class="input100" [(ngModel)]="pass" type="password" name="passd" id="passd" placeholder="Type your password">
                  <span class="focus-input100" data-symbol=""></span>
 <div class="flex-c-m">
                  <a (click)="socialsigin('facebook')"  class="login100-social-item bg1">
                      <i class="fa fa-facebook" style="color: #fff;"></i>
                  <a (click)="socialsigin('google')"  class="login100-social-item bg3">
                      <i class="fa fa-google" style="color: #fff;"></i>

Step 8:

Open app.component.ts, add the sign method using the below code.

        let socialPlatformProvider;  
            socialPlatformProvider = FacebookLoginProvider.PROVIDER_ID;  
        else if(platform=="gmail")  

Step 9:

Once completed up to this step, finally, you can assign the account details for two data binds:
