Erlang Facebook Code Example

I’ve finally prevented distraction long enough to finish an example use of the Erlang Facebook library I posted earlier.

If you grab the source from the erlang2facebook project, you’ll know find it comes with a bunch of stuff in an “erlprints” directory. The code in “erlprints” is a near literal translation of the “Footprints” app that comes with the standard Facebook PHP library.

It’s not perfect, and there are certainly places where more Erlang-ish style could have been used, but I hope it’s good enough to give people a clue to how to use the library.

You’ll need to setup Erlang, ErlyWeb, and MySQL (not to mention getting a Facebook account and adding the developer app) before starting.

Good luck!
