Facebook App Starter Kit – Now on GitHub

I recently moved my Facebook App Starter Kit (FASK) from Google Projects to GitHub. The move was mainly to play with GitHub but also to take advantage of their packaging and downloading features. FASK provides a ready made starting point for building facebook apps using the facebook javascript api. It’s built on the HTML5 Boilerplate and provides javascript functions for the most commonly used facebook features. A lot has been added to the project in recent months:

  • Greatly improved Login system.
  • Two Like Gate methods, one for tab apps and the other for stand-alone apps and sites.
  • “Add To Page” – easy installation of tab apps.
  • “Post To Page” – post to your brand pages as the app.

Check out the project page on GitHub and the demo app on Facebook.
