Getting Started

Install facebooklogger with

pip install facebooklogger

To use the Facebook logger, you will need to create a Facebook page and get two pieces of information. A Page Access Token to authenticate as the page, and the User ID you want logs sent to.

Configuration

The logger requires two configuration options set:

  • PAGE_ACCESS_TOKEN
  • FB_USER_ID

They can be provided as environment variables, or by creating a file called .env in the working directory that looks like:

PAGE_ACCESS_TOKEN=ABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefweeaABCDEFGH12345abcefwe
FB_USER_ID=1234567891234567

Replacing the token and user ID with your own obtained below

Page Access Token

Note that to use this logger you DO NOT need to have your app verified by Facebook, you can just stay in development mode.

Follow the getting started section of
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/messenger-platform/getting-started/quick-start

User ID

Facebook Page IDs are unique to the page, and as such if you change page you will need to re-acquire the user id.
Note: You will have to already have the page access token

To get user id, run the following

PAGE_ACCESS_TOKEN=YOURTOKEN python3 -m facebooklogger

and follow the prompts
