Facebook Notifier

Posted in Internet by vanbug 2684 days ago

Hola!

I was working on a python script to make facebook notifier and its finally done. Nothing fancy just instant updates of notifications without opening the browser. I am including the facefeed.py script, just grab your notification rss feed from your Facebook account and edit the file and put it there. Also, change the location of facefeed.py in the facefeed.glet so that it runs it. Current refresh time is 60 secs, decrease it if your famous and vice versa. You can also change how many feeds to display at once, just change the range in the python script.

Please let me know any comments, criticism and love.

Thanks

Sukhi

P.S. Extension py is not allowed so I changed it to .txt, just change it to .py.

I used the weather geeklet from here

Hey, facefeed,glet uses the script facefeed.txt (python script), just change first the extension (.txt->py) and then the path where ever you keep this python sctipt in your glet script so that it can access it.

Also, change the notification in the python script with your own facebook notification feed to receive the updates for yourself.

I hope that helps.

the python script imports a module called "feedparser,re" when I try to run it, it says there is no such module. Any help?

Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't have the feedparser script in my documents, my bad.

I hope you have figured it out by now, also you might need to install the modules.
