"""A barebones AppEngine application that uses Facebook for login.

This application uses OAuth 2.0 directly rather than relying on Facebook's
JavaScript SDK for login. It also accesses the Facebook Graph API directly
rather than using the Python SDK. It is designed to illustrate how easy
it is to use the Facebook Platform without any third party code.

See the "appengine" directory for an example using the JavaScript SDK.
Using JavaScript is recommended if it is feasible for your application,
as it handles some complex authentication states that can only be detected
in client-side code.

FACEBOOK_APP_ID = "your app id"
FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET = "your app secret"
