FB Bday List



  • Hi,
    Am trying to figure out a module to list out Birthdate list from FB, just like how all my FB friends Bday got synced to my windows phone calendar.!!

    Experts, please advise, am just a beginner.

    Thanks



  • @plybz18 in your fb events, you can copy bday link form bottom right.

    And then add it as a calendar :)

    Hello Can you detail a bit more as I’m unsure what link you mean (facebookcom/events/birthdays ?) , and how to include in my iCal to show in MM… or if you mean to add a seperate calendar just for this to show all birthdays? I do not have FB Birthday events synced to my phone btw. thank you.

    I did not try it with MagicMirror and I don’t have any working copy of it here at the moment, but it should work.
    Log in to facebook on your computer (not a mobile device) and navigate to Events. In events scroll down and look on the right side. There you should see a text block saying “You can add your events to Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, or Apple Calendar.” Underneath there are two links. The second link is for birthdays. Copy this link and add it as a new calendar. The link should look like this:

    webcal://www.facebook.com/ical/b.php?uid=100002xxxxxxxxxx&key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Add it to your config like this:

    		{
    			module: "calendar",
    			header: "My Calendars",
    			position: "top_left",
    			config: {
    				calendars: [
    					{
    						symbol: "calendar-check-o ",
    						url: "webcal://www.calendarlabs.com/templates/ical/US-Holidays.ics"
    					},
    					{
    						symbol: "birthday-cake ",
    						url: "webcal://www.facebook.com/ical/b.php?uid=100002xxxxxxxxxx&key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    					},
    				]
    			}
    		},
    
    


  • @yawns Thank you very much. I will give that a go tonight. ;-)

    	{
    			module: 'calendar',
    			header: 'Family Calendar',
    			position: 'top_right',
    			config: {
                                     maximumEntries: 15,
                                     maximumNumberOfDays: 365,

    				calendars: [
    					{
    						symbol: 'calendar-check-o ',
    						url: 'webcal://www.calendarlabs.com/templates/ical/UK-Holidays.ics'
    					},
                                            {
                                                    symbol: `calendar-check-o `,
                                                    url: "https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/**************************"
                                            },
                                            {
                                                    symbol: "birthday-cake",
                                                    url: "webcal://www.facebook.com/ical/b.php?uid=**********************amp;key=**************************gmqP"
    				},
    

    Edit - It is working now. By comparing the actual link with the one I C&P somehow it included “amp,” before “key” an when I removed that part it shows up as it should, with birthday cake :-)

    Thanks again.
