The package can be installed via Composer by requiring the "philo/laravel5-facebook": "1.0.*" package in your project's composer.json.

    "require": {
        "laravel/framework": "~5.0*",
        "philo/laravel5-facebook": "1.0.*"
    "minimum-stability": "dev"

Next you need to add the service provider to app/config/app.php

'providers' => array(
    // ...

And do the same for the alias:

'aliases' => array(
	// ...
	'Facebook'  => 'Philo\Laravel5Facebook\Facades\Facebook',

Add Facebook to services

Laravel 5 has a new file that contains all third party services (app/config/services.php). Add your client_id and client_secret.


return [

	| Third Party Services
	| This file is for storing the credentials for third party services such
	| as Stripe, Mailgun, Mandrill, and others. This file provides a sane
	| default location for this type of information, allowing packages
	| to have a conventional place to find your various credentials.

	'facebook' => [
		'client_id' => '1234567891234612',
		'client_secret' => 'a837f07gjsoxya721964120z7dkgr',


// Create session
$token = '<facebook access token>';

// Request
$user = Facebook::request('/me')->getGraphObject(GraphUser::className());

I've added a couple shortcuts for the most common graph objects.

$user = Facebook::user();
$location = Facebook::location();
$albums = Facebook::albums();
$album = Facebook::album(1234567890);

If you would like to access the FacebookSession object, call the getSession method.

$session = Facebook::getSession();
$info = $session->getSessionInfo();
