Installation

1. Install via NPM:

npm i --save ngx-facebook

2. Add the Facebook JavaScript SDK to your index.html

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js"></script>

3. Import FacebookModule into your app's root module


import { FacebookModule } from 'ngx-facebook';

@NgModule({
  ...
  imports: [
    FacebookModule.forRoot()
  ],
  ...
})
export class AppModule { }

If you only want to use FacebookService only, without using the other components, then you can import it in your app's module instead of FacebookModule.

4. Inject FacebookService and call the init method (optional):

This method must be called before using login or api methods. It is not required for other methods/components.

import { FacebookService, InitParams } from 'ngx-facebook';

...

export class MyComponentOrService {

  constructor(private fb: FacebookService) {

    let initParams: InitParams = {
      appId: '1234566778',
      xfbml: true,
      version: 'v2.8'
    };

    fb.init(initParams);

  }

}
