Facebook::Graph News

By far my most popular module on CPAN has to be Facebook::Graph, and this is an interesting week for Facebook::Graph, so I thought I'd post a little blog about it.

First, my first of many (I hope) articles about Facebook::Graph is on perl.com today.

Second, 1.0200 has been released to CPAN. New features include posting Facebook location checkins, only loading Digest::SHA when needed, and some updated documentation for using Facebook Graph relationships.

Third, Michael Alan Dorman released a wrapper for Facebook::Graph for Dancer called Dancer::Plugin::Facebook, which makes it a bit easier to use Facebook::Graph in Dancer.

That's quite a bit of news for one silly module! =)


Great post on Perl.com - thanks

Thanks for all your work on Facebook::Graph, JT.

Quick question: Facebook says all apps need to use OAuth 2.0 by Sept 1 -- does Facebook::Graph need to be updated, or is it go to go?

Reading the FB docs it says the postback needs to be https://, but I notice on your perl.com article there is no mention of SSL. Have I misunderstood?

I have just tried the Facebook::Graph api with dancer, but I am getting

"Error 404
Unable to process your query
The page you requested is not available
Powered by Dancer 1.3111"

and the found the following from dancer log.
