Built-in Facebook Application
Laconica's Facebook application allows your users to automatically
update their Facebook statuses with their latest notices, invite
their friends to use the app (and thus your site), view their notice
timelines, and post notices -- all from within Facebook. The application
is built into Laconica and runs on your host. For automatic Facebook
status updating to work you will need to enable queuing and run the
facebookqueuehandler.php daemon (see the "Queues and daemons" section
Quick setup instructions*:
Install the Facebook Developer application on Facebook:
Use it to create a new application and generate an API key and secret.
Uncomment the Facebook app section of your config.php and copy in the
key and secret, e.g.:
# Config section for the built-in Facebook application
$config['facebook']['apikey'] = 'APIKEY';
$config['facebook']['secret'] = 'SECRET';
In Facebook's application editor, specify the following URLs for your app:
- Callback URL: http://example.net/mublog/facebook/
- Post-Remove URL: http://example.net/mublog/facebook/remove
- Post-Add Redirect URL: http://apps.facebook.com/yourapp/
- Canvas URL: http://apps.facebook.com/yourapp/
(Replace 'example.net' with your host's URL, 'mublog' with the path
to your Laconica installation, and 'yourapp' with the name of the
Facebook application you created.)
Additionally, Choose "Web" for Application type in the Advanced tab.
In the "Canvas setting" section, choose the "FBML" for Render Method,
"Smart Size" for IFrame size, and "Full width (760px)" for Canvas Width.
Everything else can be left with default values.
*For more detailed instructions please see the installation guide on the
