Facebook Registration Widget and Ruby on Rails

I have successfully integrated:

  • the Facebook Registration Plugin/Widget
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Devise

The existing websites that talk about how to integrate these widgets include:

What's missing from these articles is what happens after you decode the signed_request using Veerasundaravel's Rails plugin.  Namely:

  • How to use the signed request in a controller for registration
  • What is a good strategy for unit testing
  • How to handle integration with an authentication system, like Devise
  • How to handle both facebook and non-facebook (local) users
  • How to perform functional testing

I have performed the above tasks, and intend to write them up shortly.  If you need help in a particular area, make a request and I can write the articles by answering your questions.
