Rails 5 Devise Omniauth Bootstrap Base

Want to use Rails 5, Devise, Omniauth, Omniauth-Facebook, and Bootstrap?

I decided to wrap a base app into a repo here on GitHub that out of the box is ready to add your Facebook App API credentials, and hit the ground running. There are some caveats with regards to the Facebook side of setup but nothing overly difficult.

Feel free to fork my repo here

Some notes on the latest Facebook SSL requirements….

You will need to create some certs to allow your Rails localhost server to run in SSL mode. I followed this tutorial and it works like a charm.

More information and a better tutorial will come soon, I’m focused on finishing up with school at the moment. Thanks for stopping by.
