Placebook

Placebook is a simple API wrapper for the Facebook Places API. It utilizes the Facebook Graph API to pull information about places from Facebook.

Installation

gem install placebook

Usage

Facebook has only exposed a limited feature set for the Places API at the moment. This gem will continue to track Facebook Places development and release new versions for functionality as it comes online.

places = Placebook::Client.new('app_id', 'app_secret', 'access_token')

# Get a specific checkin by ID places.checkin('123') # => <Placebook::Checkin …>

# Get recent checkins for a user, page, or other entity places.checkins_for('mbleigh') # => [checkin, checkin, checkin, …]

# Search for checkins – DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ACTIVE YET # places.search('taco') # => [checkin, checkin, checkin]

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
