In a previous article we covered User Authentication with Codeigniter 1.7 using Twitter oAuth. In this article by Adam Griffiths, author of CodeIgniter 1.7 Professional Development, we will continue our discussion on how we can utilize third-party authentication methods by using Facebook Connect.
Facebook Connect is just like Twitter oAuth, but for Facebook accounts. It doesn't use the oAuth protocol, so its workings might seem slightly different to developers.

In order to demonstrate Django's rapid development potential, we will begin by constructing a simple, but fully-featured, e-commerce store. The goal is to be up and running with a product catalog and products for sale, including a simple payment processing interface, in about half-an-hour. If this seems ambitious, remember that Django offers a lot of built-in shortcuts for the most common web-related development tasks. We will be taking full advantage of these and there will be side discussions of their general use.
In addition to building our starter storefront, this article aims to demonstrate some other Django tools and techniques. In this article by Jesse Legg, author of Django 1.2 e-commerce, we will:
- Create our Django Product model to take advantage of the automatic admin tool
- Build a flexible but easy to use categorization system, to better organize our catalog of products
- Utilize Django's generic view framework to expose a quick set of views on our catalog data
- Finally, create a simple template for selling products through the Google Checkout API
