The first version of a Facebook Open Graph Library for Ruby. Require HTTParty to function.

For documentation on the Open Graph Library, see:

Quick Start:

Add config.gem "mogli" to environment.rb

For Rails: create a controller like the following:

class OauthController < ApplicationController

def new session[:at]=nil redirect_to authenticator.authorize_url(:scope => 'publish_stream', :display => 'page') end

def create
mogli_client = Mogli::Client.create_from_code_and_authenticator(params[:code],authenticator) session[:at]=mogli_client.access_token redirect_to "/" end

def index redirect_to new_oauth_path and return unless session[:at] user = Mogli::User.find("me",[:at])) @user = user @posts = user.posts end

def authenticator @authenticator ||='client_id', 'secret', oauth_callback_url) end end

with routes:

map.resource :oauth, :controller=>"oauth" map.root :controller=>"oauth" map.oauth_callback "/oauth/create", :controller=>"oauth", :action=>"create"

Viewing / should redirect you to the login page, and then redirect back to your app to show your recent posts

From the console, you can create a client with the stored access token:

require "rubygems" require "mogli" client ="your_access_token")

You can now fetch users with the client, for example:

myself = Mogli::User.find("me",client)


mikemangino = Mogli::User.find(12451752,client)

When you fetch yourself, you can look at your posts and other information:


You can also fetch other objects by ID, for example:

album = Mogli::Album.find(99394368305)

If the object requires a client, just pass one in:

album = Mogli::Album.find(99394368305,client)

You can also upload photos using httmultiparty: facebook_access_token = "..." client ="me/photos", nil, {:source =>"myphoto.jpg")})


1) fork the repo 2) Add tests for a missing method, such as 3) implement missing method 4) send me a pull request.

Feel free to add missing associations if you see them as well. My goal is to get a readonly API in place first, and then move on to the read/write API


Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
