    getFacebookId.js

    This module is the simplest implementation for retrieving facebook id by username.

    Preface

    Since the API of Facebook removed support for look up of id by username, it became quite inconvenient when our app requires that functionality. So I have created this simple interface for doing that.

    Install

    Local

    > npm install --save get-facebook-id
    

    Global (useful for command line interface)

    > npm install -g get-facebook-id
    

    Command line interface

    get-facebook-ids/get-fb-ids could be called to retrieve an id given username.

    For example:

    > get-facebook-ids ycm.jason
    1311577170
    

    Multiple ids could be fetch at once:

    > get-fb-ids ycm.jason someotheruser nosuchuser
    1311577170
    1234567
    `nosuchuser` not found
    

    Using the API

    The module exports a function that takes in a username and callback.

    getFacebookIds = require('get-facebook-id');
     
    getFacebookIds('ycm.jason', function(ids) {
      // If user is not found, id would be `false`
      console.log(id[0]);
    });

    Multiple ids:

    getFacebookIds = require('get-facebook-id');
     
    getFacebookIds('ycm.jason someotheruser nosuchuser', function(ids) {
      // If user is not found, id would be `false`
      console.log(ids);
    });

    The result of the above script would be [1311577170, 1234567, false].
