Facebot

Send facebook message to person or group

Graph API doesn't provide function for sending message, so I write one.

You can write a bot to talk with you, or send notification to your co-workers group if one of your server is down.

Feel free to open issue or PR!

Installation

pip install facebot

or

python setup.py install

Usage

Initiate a facebook instance:

	>>> from facebot import Facebook
	>>> f = Facebook('<USERNAME>', '<PASSWORD>')

Listen for messages:

  1. Fill in USERNAME and PASSWORD in listener.py
  2. Then type python listener.py.
  3. Have fun seeing friends sending you messages.

Ping:

If you want to write a long-running script, you should frequently call ping to tell facebook that you are alive.

	# play ping pong with facebook
	>>> f.ping()

Send message to a person:

	# send a text message
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>') 
	
	# send message with photo
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>', pic='http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/python.png')
	
	# send message with sticker
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>', sticker='392309754199670')
	
	# send message with like gesture only available in mobile app
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>', like='l') # large one
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>', like='m') # medium one
	>>> f.send_person('<USER_ID>', '<BODY>', like='s') # small one

Send message to the group:

How to find thread id?

Select See Full Conversaction in the group dialog, and the last part of url should be conversaction-123456789, so 123456789 is the thread id.

	# send a text message
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>') 
	
	# send message with photo
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>', pic='http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/python.png')
	
	# send message with sticker
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>', sticker='392309754199670')
	
	# send message with like gesture only available in mobile app
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>', like='l') # large one
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>', like='m') # medium one
	>>> f.send_group('<THREAD_ID>', '<BODY>', like='s') # small one

Read the conversation:

	# read all the messages in this conversation
	>>> f.read('<THREAD_ID>')

Typing:

	# send typing status to the group
	>>> f.group_typing('<THREAD_ID>')

	# send typing status to the user
	>>> f.person_typing('<USER_ID>')

Get access token:

	# default using Graph API Explorer
	>>> f.get_access_token()
	
	# retrieve other app's access token
	>>> f.get_access_token('<APP_ID>')
