Sync public facebook page events to Google Calendar.


Before beginning you will need to create and configure a facebook app and use it to acquire a page access token for Graph API.

You will also need to set up a Google service account to acquire a credentials file to authenticate with Google APIs.


Install fest using pip:

pip install fest

Basic Use

Use clients for facebook's Graph API and Google's Calendar API to create FacebookPage and GoogelCalendar objects, then synchronize:

import facebook
from googleapiclient import discovery

import fest

# Connect to Graph API & Calendar API
graphapi = facebook.GraphAPI('<facebook-page-token>')
calendarapi = discovery.build('calendar', 'v3', cache_discovery=False)

# Get Page/Calendar objects
page = fest.FacebookPage(graphapi, '<facebook-page-name-or-id>')
gcal = fest.GoogleCalendar(calendarapi, '<google-calendar-id>')

# Sync Calendar <= Page
req = gcal.sync(page, time_filter='upcoming')
res = req.execute()
