Constructor Details

#initialize(access_token = Koala.config.access_token, app_secret = Koala.config.app_secret) ⇒ Koala::Facebook::API

Note:

If no access token is provided, you can only access some public information.

Creates a new API client.

Parameters:

  • access_token (String) (defaults to: Koala.config.access_token)

    access token

  • app_secret (String) (defaults to: Koala.config.app_secret)

    app secret, for tying your access tokens to your app secret If you provide an app secret, your requests will be signed by default, unless you pass appsecret_proof: false as an option to the API call. (See developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/securing-requests/)

Instance Method Details

#api(path, args = {}, verb = "get", options = {}) ⇒ Object

Note:

You'll rarely need to call this method directly.

Makes a request to the appropriate Facebook API.

Parameters:

  • path

    the server path for this request (leading / is prepended if not present)

  • args (defaults to: {})

    arguments to be sent to Facebook

  • verb (defaults to: "get")

    the HTTP method to use

  • options (defaults to: {})

    request-related options for Koala and Faraday. See github.com/arsduo/koala/wiki/HTTP-Services for additional options.

Options Hash (options):

  • :http_component (Symbol)

    which part of the response (headers, body, or status) to return

  • :format (Symbol)

    which request format to use. Currently, :json is supported

  • :preserve_form_arguments (Symbol)

    preserve arrays in arguments, which are expected by certain FB APIs (see the ads API in particular, developers.facebook.com/docs/marketing-api/adgroup/v2.4)

  • :beta (Boolean)

    use Facebook's beta tier

  • :use_ssl (Boolean)

    force SSL for this request, even if it's tokenless. (All API requests with access tokens use SSL.)

Returns:

  • a Koala::HTTPService::Response object representing the returned Facebook data

Raises:

  result
end

#graph_call(path, args = {}, verb = "get", options = {}) { ... } ⇒ Object

Make a call directly to the Graph API. (See any of the other methods for example invocations.)

Parameters:

  • path

    the Graph API path to query (no leading / needed)

  • verb (defaults to: "get")

    the type of HTTP request to make (get, post, delete, etc.)

Yields:

  • response when making a batch API call, you can pass in a block that parses the results, allowing for cleaner code. The block's return value is returned in the batch results. See the code for GraphAPIMethods#get_picture for examples. (Not needed in regular calls; you'll probably rarely use this.)

Returns:

  • the result from Facebook
