Project Description
Django Facebook Utils
=====================

**License:** MIT

The intent of this project is to provide some very basic utilities related to Facebook.

At the moment there are only two features:

* An utility that forces the update of an URL in the Facebook's share cache.
* A Context Processor that allows you to hide Facebook [Open Graph Protocol](http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraphprotocol/) <meta> tags from other User Agents.


Installation
------------

`pip install django-facebook-utils`

or

`pip install git+http://github.com/caioariede/django-facebook-utils.git#egg=facebook_utils`


How to force an URL to be updated from Facebook's cache
-------------------------------------------------------

1. The `ping_facebook` command:

`python manage.py ping_facebook http://example.com`

See below **How to extend the ping_facebook command** to fit your needs.

2. Calling the `ping_facebook` shortcut:

from facebook_utils.shortcuts import ping_facebook

if ping_facebook('http://example.com'):
print('success')
else:
print('fail')

This shortcut will only return `True` or `False`. If you need more information to debug, you can call `facebook_utils.utils.ping` or use the `ping_facebook` command with `--verbosity=2` (more verbose).

Detecting Facebook requests
---------------------------

1. The `facebookexternalhit` context processor (for templates):

Add `facebook_utils.context_processors.facebookexternalhit` to the [TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSOR](https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#std:setting-TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS) setting in `settings.py`:

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
# .. other stuff
'facebook_utils.context_processors.facebookexternalhit',
)

In the template:

{% if facebookexternalhit %}
<meta property="og:title" content="The Rock"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="movie"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117500/"/>
<meta property="og:image" content="http://ia.media-imdb.com/rock.jpg"/>
{% endif %}

2. The `is_facebookexternalhit` shortcut:

from facebook_utils.shortcuts import is_facebookexternalhit

def some_view(request):
if is_facebookexternalhit(request):
return HttpResponse('Hello, Facebook!')
return HttpResponse('Hello visitor!')

How to extend the ping_facebook command
---------------------------------------

You can easily extend the `ping_facebook` command to fit your needs.

1. First of all, [start writing your own custom command](https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/custom-management-commands/)
2. Now extends the `ping_facebook` command:

from facebook_utils.management.commands import BasePingCommand

3. Finally, extend it to fit your needs:

class Command(BasePingCommand):
help = 'Ping some pages stored in database'

def handle(self, **options):
verbosity = options.get('verbosity')
traceback = options.get('traceback')

for page in Page.objects.all():
page_url = page.get_absolute_url()
self.do_ping(page_url, verbosity, traceback)
