Summary: Facebook plugin
Plugin to incorporate facebook into pidgin.
Save the file to the libgaim/plugins directory
Go to facebook and create a developer api key and signature: http://developers.facebook.com/account.php?action=add_key Edit the source file and change API_KEY_HERE and SECRET_HERE to your api key and secret. (Around line 36)
run "make facebook.so" in the libgaim/plugins directory and copy the file to your plugins directory
When you load the plugin, you should get a notification telling you to go to a link. Click the link and login to facebook. Then click on Close in the notification window.
Now, if all goes well, you can right click on a buddy and click "Assign Facebook User". A list of users should come up. Pick who it is and click OK.
Now when you either get a tooltip of the buddy (keep the mouse hovered over the buddy) or get the user info (right click, get info) you will see a Facebook Status.
This is still in the works. I plan on adding some other features.
I really, really wanted to pull up a list of screen names from facebook, but the API doesn't let me.
Neither I, or this plugin, are in anyway affiliated with facebook, pidgin, AOL or anyone else who might sue me. And I'm broke, so it's pointless anyway.
