The functions return the full JSON body of the actual API call to Facebook.

Register for an Access Token

You’ll need to setup a Facebook App, Facebook Page, get the Page Access Token and link the App to the Page before you can really start to use the Send/Receive service.

This quickstart guide should help


pip install pymessenger2


from import Bot

bot = Bot(<access_token>, [optional: app_secret])
bot.send_text_message(recipient_id, message)

Note: From Facebook regarding User IDs

These ids are page-scoped. These ids differ from those returned from Facebook Login apps which are app-scoped. You must use ids retrieved from a Messenger integration for this page in order to function properly.

If app_secret is initialized, an app_secret_proof will be generated and send with every request. Appsecret Proofs helps further secure your client access tokens. You can find out more on the Facebook Docs

Sending a generic template message:

Generic Template Messages allows you to add cool elements like images, text all in a single bubble.
from import Bot
from pymessenger2 import Element
bot = Bot(<access_token>)
elements = []
element = Element(title="test", image_url="<arsenal_logo.png>", subtitle="subtitle", item_url="")

bot.send_generic_message(recipient_id, elements)


Generic Bot Output

Generic Bot Output

Sending an image/video/file using an URL:
