Facebook API

Access Facebook with Javascript. This module offers high level and low level calls to the graph API.

This is an work in process I will implement features as I need them. If you have something valuable to add, send it to me and I will merge it.

Features

  • view information about entities (users, pages, etc.)
  • get users friends
  • view users wall
  • post on walls
  • users photos
  • users photo albums

Usage

We use the function viewback to display the results of the callbacks

function viewback(err, data) { 
    if(err) { 
        console.log("Error: " + JSON.stringify(err)); 
    } else { 
        console.log("Data: " + JSON.stringify(data)); 
    }
}

Use API without Authorization

var fbapi = require('facebook-api');
var client = fbapi.user(null); // do not set an access token
client.get("btaylor").info(viewback);

> Data: {"id":"220439","name":"Bret Taylor","first_name":"Bret","last_name":"Taylor","link":"http://www.facebook.com/btaylor","gender":"male","locale":"en_US"}

Use API with Authorization

var fbapi = require('facebook-api');
var client = fbapi.user(access_token); // needs a valid access_token
client.me.info(viewback);
client.me.friends(viewback);

Use Raw API

var raw = require('facebook-api').raw;
raw("GET", "cocacola", [], viewback);

> Data: {"id":"40796308305","name":"Coca-Cola" ... }
