= Facebooker
Facebooker is a Ruby wrapper over the Facebook[] {REST API}[]. Its goals are:
* Idiomatic Ruby
* No dependencies outside of the Ruby standard library (This is true with Rails 2.1. Previous Rails versions require the JSON gem)
* Concrete classes and methods modeling the Facebook data, so it's easy for a Rubyist to understand what's available
* Well tested
= Installing (Non Rails)
The best way is:
gem install facebooker
If, for some reason, you can't/won't use RubyGems, you can do:
(sudo) ruby setup.rb
= Installing (Rails)
Facebooker can be installed as a Rails plugin by:
script/plugin install git://
If you don't have git, the plugin can be downloaded from
Once the plugin is installed, you will need to configure your Facebook app in config/facebooker.yml.
Your application users will need to have added the application in facebook to access all of facebooker's features. You enforce this by adding
to your application controller.
== Work in Progress
I'm not saying it meets its goals fully yet. Please help. I'm especially interested in feedback and criticism re: Ruby style and design and testing. RCov has the library (at the time of this writing) at 100% coverage. I take that with a grain of salt, but it's a good start.
== Contribute
Please visit the {RubyForge project page}[] to get the latest source via svn, write some tests, add/fix features, and submit a patch via the tracker. If you submit a good patch, it's likely that I'll add you to the project for commit access if you want to be added.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
