Integration of MongoDB Realm and Facebook Groups

MongoDB Realm is a NoSQL database that provides an alternative to MongoDB. NoSQL stands for non-relational and it uses a key value store for data storage instead of the tabular form used in relational databases. This guide will focus on how to integrate MongoDB Realm with Facebook Groups.

Integrating MongoDB Realm with Facebook groups is quite easy and it doesn’t require you to develop any mobile app or website. The integration is done by using Facebook SDK. The first thing we need to do is to create a Facebook app. Creating a Facebook app is easy, just go to facebook developers website and create a new app. You can give the app a name you want and make sure the App Display Name is the same as the one you are going to use in your code.

Once the app is created, select the Login Product -> Facebook Login option and choose a tab name (see image below. Then click + Add Product, choose Web, then click Next. Click Create New Domain and enter a name for your domain (see image below. In this tutorial we will call it “facebook_realm”, but you can call it anything you want.

You should now get a screen like this:

Now we need to add some permissions to our Facebook App. Permissions are the things our app needs access to in order to work correctly. On the left side of the page, find the Permissions section and click Add Platform (see image below. Choose OAuth 2.0 on the dropdown menu and then click Add Platform (see image below.

Now scrpl down to the bottom of the page and click on Edit Settings (see image below)

Then select all permissions (see image below), scrpl down to Save Changes and click Save Changes (see image below.

Now you need to create a new Android project and add the Facebook SDK with this line in your build.gradle file. implementation '[insert version here]' . Then add these two lines in your activity file:

Facebook . init ( this , [ insert app id ] , this . ; Facebook . requestPermissions ( this , [ insert permission list ] . ;

where [insert app id] is your app ID and [insert permission list] is the permissions listed on the Facebook Developers Website (image above. Replace [insert permission list] with all permissions for which you've added access in step 13 of this tutorial. If you have finished adding permissions, your Activity file should look like this:

Facebook . init ( this , [ insert app id ] , this . ; Facebook . requestPermissions ( this , [ "email" , "user_birthday" , "user_location" , "user_friends" ] . ; @Override public void onRequestPermissionsResult ( int requestCode , String permissions [ ] ,int [ ] grantResults . { switch ( requestCode . { case 1 . { if ( grantResults . length > 0 && grantResults [ 0 ] == PackageManager . PERMISSION_GRANTED . { Toast . makeText ( getApplicationContext ( . , "permission granted!" ,Toast . LENGTH_SHORT . . show ( . ; } else { Toast . makeText ( getApplicationContext ( . , "permission denied!" , Toast . LENGTH_SHORT . . show ( . ; } break ; } default . { super . onRequestPermissionsResult ( requestCode , permissions , grantResults . ; } } }

In your Activity class, you can now use the Facebook SDK by adding the fplowing lines:

private static final String FB_APP_ID = "your-app-id" ; private static final String FB_APP_SECRET = "your-app-secret" ; private static final String FACEBOOK_AUTH_CALLBACK_URL = "yourauthcallbackurl" ; protected void onCreate ( Bundle savedInstanceState . { super . onCreate ( savedInstanceState . ; setContentView ( R . layout . activity_main . ; FacebookSDK sdk = new FacebookSDK ( this . ; fb = sdk . getFB ( this . ; // you need to create a callback url to be able to recieve // data from facebook using firebase webhooks // see // and sdk . getFBAsync ( FB_APP_ID , FB_APP_SECRET , new FBSDKCallbackHandler ( FACEBOOK_AUTH_CALLBACK_URL . . ; } @Override protected void onActivityResult ( int requestCode , int resultCode , Intent data . { super . onActivityResult ( requestCode , resultCode , data . ; if ( resultCode == RESULT_OK && data != null . { fb = data . getParcelableExtra ( FBSDKFacebookUtil . EXTRA_FB . ; //call your callback method once you recieve data from facebook fb . callBack ( new FBResultCallback < Parcelable > ( . { @Override public void onResponseReceived ( Parcelable response . { } @Override public void onFailure ( Exception e . { } } . ; } }

At this stage, we have integrated the Facebook SDK into our app, but we still can’t send messages between the app and Facebook groups. To do that we need to create a server that can execute javascript code and handle json responses from facebook API calls. We will not cover how to create such server in this tutorial, but you can use any server in any language as long as it has an api that lets you send messages over HTTP and gets json responses from facebook servers back. For example, you can use expressjs or nodejs web server with mongoose or jade templates. Or use any other web framework of your choice and write some code that sends JSON objects back and forth between facebook servers and your custom server. In this tutorial, we will use php + jquery + mongodb database + piwik analytics code as an example of how to do this, but you can use any other combination of technpogies that suits your needs. You can use php code samples provided below as a starting point for creating such server in any other technpogy or language of your choice.
