Facebook Token Generator
For server apps which should run in the background without any user interaction, Facebook's policy of expiring access tokens after 60 days is rather inconvenient. This app will generate long-lived tokens by mimicking user interactions in the browser (via PhantomJS) and save the tokens to your local file system.
If you mount your local volume
/path/to/dir into the container, the tokens will be stored at:
$ docker run -e FB_CLIENT_ID=123 -e FB_CLIENT_SECRET=xzy \ -e FB_USER_EMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org -e FB_USER_PASSWORD=secret \ -e FB_SCOPES=email,user_friends \ -v /path/to/dir:/token \ -it moertel/facebook-token-generator
FB_CLIENT_ID: The client ID of your Facebook application
FB_CLIENT_SECRET: The client secret of your Facebook application
FB_SCOPES(optional): Comma-separated list of scopes to request
FB_USER_EMAIL: Email address of Facebook user account for which to obtain an access token
FB_USER_PASSWORD: Password of Facebook user account
Languages other than English
This script assumes that your Facebook language is English. If you use Facebook in another language, you may want to override the button texts:
FB_BUTTON_TEXT_GETTOKEN(optional): Default is "Get Token"
FB_BUTTON_TEXT_GETUSERACCESSTOKEN(optional): Default is "Get User Access Token"
FB_BUTTON_TEXT_GETACCESSTOKEN(optional): Default is "Get Access Token"
