FBEventSync v0.35; Failed to retrieve calendar from Facebook.

in utopian-io •  7 days ago

Project Information

Expected behavior

This app lets me retrieve events from my facebook account and sync them into my local device calendar. I expected that I should be able to retrieve that information using this app.

Actual behavior

When I try to retrieve calendar information from Facebook using the app, it times out and a get a toast notification saying; failed to retrieve calendar export link

How to reproduce

The step to reproduce is very straightforward. To make the app function as intended, you must sync with facebook. To do that on the app;

  • Click the plus (+) sign on the bottom right side of the app.
  • You'd have to add your facebook account, click on event sync for facebook
  • Enter your facebook login details
  • Automatically, the app starts to retrieve your calendar from facebook
  • Wait a little while and you will see the error.
  • Browser/App version: Event sync for facebook v0.35
  • Device/ Operating system: Redmi note 5 pro/ Android 8.1

The cause of this error can be located in the sync log file which I sent to the developer.

Hi @harry-heightz, thanks for making this contribution.

I was able to reproduce the behavior you described. I see in your conversation with the PO, that he has fixed the issue and this should be live in the next release.

  1. The expected and actual behaviors were very well written.
  2. The steps were quite easy to follow. The recording complemented what was written.
  3. I like the correspondence between you and the PO in the comment section of the issue you opened. Good job on your part.

I look forwad to more of your reports :)

Thank you for your review, @fego! Keep up the good work!

I think login token generation needed to sync the calendar.

I don't understand what you mean


You should research mote it looks like

fb_auth = FbGraph::Auth.new(APP_ID, APP_SECRET) client = fb_auth.client client.redirect_uri = "https://www.facebook.com/connect/login_success.html" puts client.authorization_uri( :scope => [:publish_stream, :read_stream] )
