I have seen a lot of people writing pretty messy code to integrate social logins in rails or get confused to integrate multiple social logins in rails. In order to help them, I have written a small application having integrations with Twitter + Facebook + Linkedin + Google + Github.
I am using devise gem in this application. Few things to note in this:
There are two models in this application a user model and an authorizations model and a user has_many authorizations.
User can link to multiple social accounts from edit profile
Once social accounts are linked, the user can log in from any connected social network.
If the user tries to create an account with a different social network while in the logged out state. System maps it to the same account if that email address exists in the database else it will create a new account.
Twitter doesn’t provide an email address of the user, nothing I can do about it.
There are a lot of other commented out gems in the Gemfile. Those are the gems that I use a lot in my various projects. I will strongly suggest you check out those gems.
