erlang_facebook is a small, lightweight Facebook Platform API client library. It provides several utility functions for request verification and processing as well.

1> [ApiKey, Secret] = ["aassdd112233", "thisisasecret"].
["aassdd112233", "thisisasecret"].
2> erlang_facebook:custom(ApiKey, Secret, "facebook.users.hasAppPermission", [{"uid", "500025891"}, {"ext_perm", "offline_access"}]).
[true]

This library is developed and updated as needed. To request a feature or if you found a bug, please contact me through GitHub (account is ngerakines) or email me at nick+erlang_facebook@gerakines.net.

Supported Facebook API Methods

Facebook API methods map to module functions directly. The list of supported methods can be obtained by looking at the exported functions as per erlang_facebook:module_info/0.

To use a method that is not defined the erlang_facebook:custom/4 function can be used. When passing the function parameters be sure to include a method tuple naming the API method as well as any additional arguments that may be required.

Dependancies

This module requires MochiWeb, specifically the mochijson2 and mochiweb_util modules.

Acknowledgements

Thanks to Brian Fink (BeerRiot rocks!) for the well made erlang2facebook project. It inspired an entire world of Erlang development and inspired this module. Also, thanks to the MochiWeb guys for giving us developers to tools to create great software.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
