request: script to update fb status

Post by Was » Mon Jan 16, 2012 7:36 pm

hey, long shot, but I was wondering whether anyone can make a LB script that would allow updating your Facebook status? Similar to the one for Alfred here: http://jdfwarrior.tumblr.com/post/73807 ... -available

You first need to install fbcmd. They offer detailed instructions on their homepage.

  • Instead of the first command on their homepage:

    Code: Select all

    curl -O https://github.com/dtompkins/fbcmd/raw/master/fbcmd_update.php

    Use this one:

    Code: Select all

    curl -O https://raw.github.com/dtompkins/fbcmd/master/fbcmd_update.php

  • If the installation was successful, you need to grant additional permissions, therefore run »fbcmd addperm« in a Terminal window.
  • Now, download the attached AppleScript, unzip it and place it in the following directory:

    Code: Select all

    ~/Library/Application Support/LaunchBar/Actions

  • Update LaunchBar's index by pressing cmd+0

To post a Facebook update
  • Select »Post Facebook Update« in LaunchBar
  • Write the message
  • Press return

The link to the script doesn't work any more. Could you please reup? As far as you know, does it work with fbcmd 2?
