Alternative version of Facebook Python SDK

Project description

Alternative unofficial version of Facebook Python SDK for Facebook Graph API. Based on Requests library. You can read more about the Graph API by accessing its official documentation.


Basic UserAPI usage:

from fblib.core import UserAPI
api = UserAPI(<user_access_token>)
api_user = api.get_objects('me')

Basic AppAPI usage:

from fblib.core import AppAPI
api = fblib.core.AppAPI(app_id=<application_id>, app_secret=<application_key>)
app_token = app_api.get_app_access_token()

Proper usage:

from fblib.core import UserAPI
access_token = <user_access_token>
api = UserAPI(access_token)
    api_user = api.get_objects('me')
except fblib.core.FacebookError:
    <handling exception>
