If you read one of my old posts, I showed you how to thank your friends when they wished you on your birthday on your facebook wall. Now I will show you how to wish your facebook friends on their birthdays programatically.
Before you get started, you need the following setup on your machine:
Get the Facebook access token: Head to this link and get the api token. Select
friends_birthdays' anduser_about_me` options when obtaining the API token.
Install the facepy python library from here
Download my app from github
In the script
fb_bday_wisher.pyreplace FB_API_KEY with the key you generated in step 1
Now run your application
- Run the app
This is a very simple app and the code is self explanatory.
- Support exceptions. You may not want to wish a specific friend :D
- Wish people on their anniversaries and other life events and make the app more generic
