Graph API And Access To Public Profile Parts

Apr 21, 2010 at 8:45 PM

Has there been any discussion about the Toolkit adding support for the Graph API, specifically the new OAuth support?  (http://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/)

According to the Upgrade Guide (http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/upgrade) applications will be able to read "public" parts of a user's profile after June 1.

That date is not far off and I'd like to have the comfortable feeling that my app isn't going to fall apart because there are no plans to upgrade the Toolkit.

 

Thanks.

I am just finishing up implementation of the graph api.  Will post the code and a build early next week.

Beta 2 of http://facebookgraphtoolkit.codeplex.com/ has been released. You should give it a try if you are starting a new project. It is a much simpler API and fully support Graph, Rest, FQL, etc.

totally appreciate that, i would like to use it BUT how then do i incorporate it back to this toolkit in order to use all the cool controls and exisitng programming i've done- or am i misunderstanding--- is the facebookgraphtooolkit an  extension of the FDK?  Or is there sample code to illustrate interoperability?  Thanks so much!

 oh and sorry but does the facebookgraphtoolkit have actual server controls i can use in my 'connect' (boy talk about outdated terms) website?  Or just for facebook apps or both?

The Facebook Graph Toolkit isn't an extension on Facebook Toolkit. I created FGT because, in my opinion, the Facebook Toolkit is overly complicated and prone to breakage when facebook makes changes to their api. FGT uses the new dynamic feature in C# 4.0 as the return type for all facebook queries and as a result will handle changes to Facebook's api without modifications to the framework. FGT was designed to operate nearly identically to Facebook's official PHP and Javascript SDKs. For example, you can call FB.api("/me") in the javascript SDK and you can app.Api('/me") in FGT in C# and the two libraries will return exactly the same data in the exact format. If you are maintaining an existing project, it may be too much work to switch over. However, my experience is that in the long run you will have much less trouble with the new FGT.

On another note, we are still adding features to the FGT. What types of controls are you using? What controls would you like to see in our toolkit if you were to start using it?
