Setup Facebook

Welcome to the tutorial on how to integrate Google AppEngine and Facebook Applications.

This blog will cover the final step in integrating Google AppEngine and Facebook. Proceed to Facebook Developers website and set up new application.

Pick an Application name and expand the Optional Fields. For the purpose of this tutorial, I am going to use the Application Id provided by Google AppEngine as "application-id".

Here are some of the boxes you have to fill up:
Callback URL:
Canvas Page URL: pick one with more than 7 chars and this will be your application page. You can change this later if you wish but try not to.
Can your application be added on Facebook? Yes
Post-Add URL: Same as your canvas page URL
Post-Authorize URL:
Post-Authorize Redirect URL: Same as your canvas page URL

That finishes all the setup needed to integrate Google AppEngine and Facebook. This setup for Facebook is the bare minimum setup. For further details on other settings, check the developer docs, blogs and forums on Facebook.
