Simple Facebook FQL queries for Node

node-fql

Jump into the Facebook Graph API with simpler FQL queries for Node.

npm install fql

A basic query to a particular Facebook page can be made like so:

var fql = require('fql');
 
fql.query('SELECT name, fan_count FROM page WHERE page_id = 19292868552', function(errdata) {
if (err) {
throw err;
}
console.log(data); // [ { name: 'Facebook Platform', fan_count: 4549532 } ] 
});

If you need to throw in an access token for non-anonymous queries, just pass it in as an option:

var fql = require('fql');
 
fql({
token: '112341534737288|LbWu8xrqWzW5h40LmTLrbU42Qx8'
}).query('SELECT name FROM user WHERE uid = me()', function(errdata) {
if (err) {
throw err;
}
console.log(data); // [ { name: 'John Doe' } ] 
});

You can make multiple queries in one request by passing a JSON object instead of a string too:

var fql = require('fql');
 
fql.query({
facebook: 'SELECT name FROM page WHERE page_id = 19292868552',
coke: 'SELECT name FROM page WHERE page_id = 40796308305'
}, function(errdata) {
/* `data` should be:
{
coke: [ { name: 'Coca-Cola' } ],
facebook: [ { name: 'Facebook Platform' } ]
}
*/
});
