Easy Rails Facebook Integration

A while back I released the [Facebook Rails Kit](http://railskits.com/facebook), which made it easy to connect to the (then-new) Graph API. Since then, I’ve done a number of projects that needed to integrate with Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and during those projects I’ve developed some code that makes it easy to interact with those APIs. As a result, I have now released a Kit that replaces the Facebook Rails Kit: the [OAuth Rails Kit](http://railskits.com/oauth).

In addition to showing you how to interact with the Graph API, it also shows you how to connect user accounts to services that support the OAuth protocol (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Github, and many more) and then get info from and push info to those service using OAuth access tokens. In short, if you want to do something like publish to a user’s Facebook profile from your Rails app, the [OAuth Rails Kit](http://railskits.com/oauth) was made for you. It has saved me a ton of time on my projects, and I’m sure it’ll do the same for you.
