Play 2 Framework and Secure Social Example Setup


If you want to add Authen­ti­ca­tion to a Play! Frame­work 2 project, Secure Social is the way to go.  I had some prob­lems installing it despite the doc­u­men­ta­tion and exam­ples.  Here are my tips based on what I learned:



Secure­So­cial allows you to add an authen­ti­ca­tion UI to your app that works with ser­vices based on OAuth1, OAuth2 and OpenID pro­to­cols. Secure­So­cial pro­vides Scala and Java APIs so you can inte­grate it using your pre­ferred language.


1. You also need to add the depen­dency for:
“com.typesafe” %% “play-plugins-mailer” % “2.0.4″



2. The Provider Sec­tion is part of the Secure Social — make sure it is a “sub-section” of the “secure­so­cial” section

The con­fig­u­ra­tion for each provider goes within the secure­so­cial sec­tion as well.
