Node.js daemon that publishes a Discourse post to Facebook Group

I am sharing a simple utility I created.

It’s a simple Node.js daemon that publishes a Discourse post to Facebook Group.

This is in use on my jsdev.kr site and will be updated continuously.

It would be an honor if you left the github star.

Thank you.

@engross so every time someone post at Discourse it automatically post to fb group? Or are there any limitations? Thanks. Nice work on this. I hope it’s can be plugin so no need to run a separate app all the time.

@chi There is no limit now.
Authors can edit or delete immediately after writing, only provide POSTED_AFTER_MIN option.

Thanks for creating this… I have a need to publish new topics to a facebook page. How much effort would that require do you think?

or… is it something I can do via webhook?

If I remember correctly, Facebook policies prohibit automatic posting without user consent. The API is to help user publish to Facebook, but the process itself should be accompanied by the user.

Can this be used to poll fb and post on discourse?

By the way, thanks for sharing!
