Facebook SDK instance and scope object.

login (response[Object]) User logged in. [ * ]
logout (response[Object]) User logged out. [ * ]

[ * ] - Scope component event.

Sdk-Init Event

You can use this event to grab the Facebook SDK instance, but also the underlying component scope object. Using this object, you can control the component empirically, similarly to how you would with ref.

⚠️ The scope reference is not reactive and you cannot relay on it for other than utilizing the scope methods. For reactivity, use the v-model directive.

Sdk-Init Event Example

    <v-facebook-login v-model="model" @sdk-init="handleSdkInit" />
    <button v-if="scope.logout && model.connected" @click="scope.logout">

  export default {
    data: () => ({
      FB: {},
      model: {},
      scope: {}
    methods: {
      handleSdkInit({ FB, scope }) {
        this.FB = FB
        this.scope = scope

Scope Component (Advanced Customization)

If props, slots and events do not provide enough customization, you can use an underlying component called v-fb-login-scope. This component uses the render prop (known as "scoped-slot" in Vue) approach for composition. This means, it does not render any HTML or CSS, but rather expose a scoped-slot with attributes and methods that are committed as API. Read more about scoped slots.

Props and Events

Refer to the tables above for scope component specific props/events.

Scoped-Slot Scope (Attributes and Methods)

Name Type Description
login Function Login handler.
logout Function Logout handler.
toggleLogin Function Toggles login/logout.
idle Boolean No asynchronous operation is taking place.
working Boolean Asynchronous operation is taking place.
connected Boolean User is logged in.
disconnected Boolean User is logged out.
enabled Boolean Button is enabled.
disabled Boolean Button is disabled.

Scope Component Example

The following snippet is a minimal usage example, see source for a full, real-word example.

    <!-- Compose HTML/CSS here, otherwise nothing will be rendered -->
    <button slot-scope="scope">
      <!-- Compose with `scope` here -->

  import { VFBLoginScope } from 'vue-facebook-login-component'

  export default {
    components: {

Loading Facebook SDK

This component embeds the Facebook SDK snippet, so you don't have to do it yourself. However, if you do want to embed it yourself, you can do so and the component will pick up your SDK instance instead.

"Uncaught ReferenceError: regeneratorRuntime is not defined"

This package uses async/await syntax, which is based on generators. In short, if you target old browsers (think about that carefully) you'll have to add regenerator-runtime to your dependencies. See this issue for more details.

npm install --save regenerator-runtime

Then, import it at the topmost of your main.js (or a similar entry-point).

import 'regenerator-runtime'

// of your imports

IE support

Add babel-polyfill to your dependencies. Notice the deprecated method and the newly recommended method.
