It turns out that it's going to be nearly impossible to send Facebook requests without Xaml, partly because xaml integration is the only way to have WebView working. There's no feasible way to render html without it, imo.

From what I've figured out looking at the cmakems/master code, I don't think I can create a Xaml-enabled C++ winrt project from cmake. Is that correct?

I tried simply adding some xaml/.h/.cpp first. Looking at the project properties, there was no "Xaml Compiler" set of options. Then I browsed the code.

Even if possible, it may not be worth the performance hit (CPU&RAM).

What I did was I removed the dependency of the actual .xaml file and instead leveraged plain .cpp and .h files. It took some time to investigate the generated files and cutting and copying some of the required methods to the .cpp and .h files, but the result was that I can easily generate projects which can authenticate with Facebook. I will try to document my findings somehow!

sorry, I wanted to respond earlier but code plea was under maintenance. I have added xaml support to CMake, it is on our new github fork https://github.com/microsoft/cmake and in the current CMake master branch and should be included in their next release.

I got your email, but have been way too busy to manage to pull & build & test that path. I probably won't find the time to try it until it's in a binary release, which is of course likely too late to submit bugs.
