install Social Auth App Flask

To install Social Auth App Flask, follow these steps:

  1. Open your terminal or command prompt.

  2. Activate your virtual environment (if you're using one) by running the appropriate command. For example, if you're using virtualenv, you can activate it by running:

source <path_to_virtualenv>/bin/activate

  1. Ensure that you have the necessary dependencies installed by running the following command:

pip install flask flask-social

This command installs Flask and Flask-Social, which is the package that provides the social authentication functionality.

  1. Once the installation is complete, you can start using Social Auth in your Flask application by importing the necessary modules and configuring the required settings.

Here's an example of how you can import the necessary modules:

python from flask import Flask from import Social

You can then create an instance of the Social class and configure it with your desired settings. For example:

python app = Flask(__name__) app.config['SOCIAL_AUTH_LOGIN_URL'] = '/login' app.config['SOCIAL_AUTH_LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL'] = '/loggedin' social = Social(app)

In this example, we set the login and redirect URLs for our application.

  1. Finally, you can start implementing social authentication in your Flask application using the social instance.

You can define routes and views to handle the authentication process, and use the provided decorators to protect certain routes. For example:

```python @app.route('/login') def login(): return social.login()

@app.route('/loggedin') def loggedin(): return social.loggedin() ```

In this example, the /login route will initiate the authentication process, and the /loggedin route will be called once the user is successfully logged in.

That's it! You have successfully installed and configured Social Auth App Flask. You can now use it to enable social authentication in your Flask application.
