A tornado based facebook graph api wrapper

Project description

What is it?

The tornado-facebook-sdk is a library that aims to ease the task of writing non-blocking, server side, facebook social graph accessing code. It’s built using tornado. This makes tornado-facebook-sdk a perfect fit if you’re developing an application using tornado.

Installing

The prefered way to install is via pip

$ pip install tornado-facebook-sdk

From github, for the last version

$ pip install git+https://github.com/pauloalem/tornado-facebook-sdk.git

Or you can just download it and install via setup.py, it’s up to you.

Using

Getting facebook’s public page

from tornado import ioloop
from facebook import GraphAPI

ioloop = ioloop.IOLoop.instance()
graph = GraphAPI()

# a simple callback that prints social graph responses
def print_callback(data):
    print data
    ioloop.stop()

graph.get_object('/facebook', callback=print_callback)

ioloop.start()

Authenticating with a user auth token and printing it’s name

graph = GraphAPI(access_token)

#do something with the user's data, like print it's first name
def get_first_name(me):
    print me['first_name']
    ioloop.stop()

result = graph.get_object('/me', callback=get_first_name)
ioloop.start()

Posting on an user’s wall

def callback(response):
    # ...
graph.post_wall("Maoe!", callback=callback)

Which is just a shortcut for

def callback(response):
    # ...
graph.put_object('me', 'feed', message="Maoe!!", callback=callback)

Deleting an object

def callback(response):
    # ...
graph.delete_object(obj_id, callback=callback)

History

This library is based on the facebook-sdk library. Originaly, I was going to use it as it’s simple and has a nice interface, but it’s blocking code makes it a no-no.
