Authentication: Google / Facebook / Github / Linkedin / DropBox / Windows / VK / Battle.net authentication
This plugin adds the "Sign-in with Google / Facebook / Github / Linkedin / Windows Live / VK / Battle.net" buttons on the login page. The first time a user login, a new Moodle account is created.
- add the plugin into /auth/googleoauth2/
- in the Moodle administration, enable the plugin (Admin block > Plugins > Authentication)
- in the plugin admin page, follow the displayed instructions.
I also created a free mini-course on how to install a Moodle plugin using Oauth2 plugin as example.

Facebook API 2.8 breaking changes
Unfortunately Facebook changed the API in its 2.8 version and it is not compatible with the plugin. So if you don't have an old Facebook API key, if you create a new key for Facebook, then it won't work with this plugin. I hope to get it in the next big update for the plugin 3.0 version but for the moment I can not set any date on when it will be released. Any financial help from big company/university using the plugin is more than welcome. We have a lot to do on the plugin from fixing Facebook, security issue, upgrading to the last maintained PHPleague Oauth2 clients lib, making it look better on Moodle 3.2 Boost theme... Cheers, Jerome.
