I have an idea which seems simple but I’m not sure how easy it would be to implement.
Basically I would like a plugin where the user can connect his discourse profile on my community to an app on his Facebook.
What that app would do is that it would show notifications from Discourse inside Facebook notifications, just like any regular notification from facebook (like, reply, mention, etc).
Then when the person clicks on any of those notifications inside his facebook, it would redirect to the specific topic on my discourse install… and if he’s logged in, would open as normal just as if he has clicked on a notification inside Discourse itself.
BTW, I don’t use Facebook sing in/logon for my community. So it would have to be something as an app that I’d say:
“Click here to connect to your Facebook account.”… then that would open a Facebook window asking for those standard authorizations. After the ok, the app starts to push notifications from Discourse into Facebook.
That’s the overall idea.
So, for that:
- Is it possible to work like that?
- What would the best way to go about it?
- If you are interested in this project, what would the budget be and how long you believe would take to create it?
After we can add here to the plugin section if other people want to use it
