[keycloak-user] Mobile Authentication API

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. The problem we're having is with social logins

When we have to login a user via social links (Google or Facebook) we need
to send him to a webview, because Keycloak communicates with the social
networks via the default flows we already have implemented.

But from a mobile standpoint this could be improved, because the user can
alerady have a Google account and/or a Facebook account on his mobile
device. So that could be used instead of making the user login again on a

The idea is to send the social information we already have on the mobile
device to Keycloak and get a token in return (we can do this with
username/password today).

The ideal thing would be a SDK for this that would (for example) be
instantiated with URI and client_id, and would provide a method for login.
I know this might not be in your roadmap for any time soon, but I'd like to
know if you have thought about any of this.

This provides a very different user experience for the user, and I think
this feature would be appreciated by many.

Thank you all again!
