= facebooker
* http://facebooker.rubyforge.org
== DESCRIPTION:
Facebooker is a Ruby wrapper over the Facebook[http://facebook.com] {REST API}[http://developer.facebook.com]. 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
== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:
* Idiomatic Ruby
* No dependencies outside of the Ruby standard library
* Concrete classes and methods modeling the Facebook data, so it's easy for a Rubyist to understand what's available
* Well tested
== SYNOPSIS:
View David Clements' {excellent tutorial}[http://apps.facebook.com/facebooker_tutorial] at {http://apps.facebook.com/facebooker_tutorial/}[http://apps.facebook.com/facebooker_tutorial] or check out {Developing Facebook Platform Applications with Rails}[http://www.pragprog.com/titles/mmfacer].
== REQUIREMENTS:
None
== INSTALL:
* 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
* Rails
Facebooker can be installed as a Rails plugin by:
script/plugin install git://github.com/mmangino/facebooker.git
If you don't have git, the plugin can be downloaded from http://github.com/mmangino/facebooker/tarball/master
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
ensure_application_is_installed_by_facebook_user
to your application controller.
