Facepy makes it really easy to use Facebook's Graph API

Project description

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jgorset/facepy/master/docs/banner.png

version pythons downloads build license

Usage

from facepy import GraphAPI

# Initialize the Graph API with a valid access token (optional,
# but will allow you to do all sorts of fun stuff).
graph = GraphAPI(oauth_access_token)

# Get my latest posts
graph.get('me/posts')

# Post a photo of a parrot
graph.post(
    path = 'me/photos',
    source = open('parrot.jpg', 'rb')
)

Facepy can do more than reading your latest posts and posting photographs of parrots, but you’ll have to read the documentation to find out how.

Please note that Facepy does not do authentication with Facebook; it only consumes its API. To get an access token to consume the API on behalf of a user, use a suitable OAuth library for your platform (if you’re using Django, for example, you might use Fandjango).

I love you

Johannes Gorset made this. You should tweet me if you can’t get it to work. In fact, you should tweet me anyway.

I love Schibsted

I work at Schibsted Products & Technology with a bunch of awesome folks who are every bit as passionate about building things as I am. If you’re using Facepy, we probably want to hire you.
