@surendrajat Nice article. I should check Hugo someday definitely.

@cos I have already deleted my real account in January. RSS bridge works well for public pages but unfortunately it's not as good with groups yeah.

Phew, yesterday I moved to microg with AICP Android custom ROM using github.com/FriendlyNeighborhoo

Feeling goods after ditching Google play services.

Maybe the next step is to go for nogoolag variant lol.

I really hate Facebook!

I decided to stop working on Facebook2RSS, the tool I was developing because Facebook will end up banning the account that will be used with the tool.

It was a short journey since late January but I enjoyed it.

Now you can use Docker to deploy Facebook2RSS easily! Also, 2FA support has been added and a bunch of improvements and bug fixes.

- Supports using HTTP or SOCKS5 proxies.
- Secure access to the API using your own api_key that can be configured via env file. (Disabled by default)

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to discuss with me or open an issue. Contributions are welcome too!

- Facebook posts can be fetched as HTML (default) or text.
- Append Facebook comments of any post RSS feed. (Disabled by default)
- Easily configure the API as you want either using a custom config.env file or by overriding a certain option using uvicorn.
- RSS feeds are cached by default (for 30 minutes) to not abuse Facebook and trigger any anti-automation mechanisms. This can be configured as you want and also can be ignored by using no_cache=1 parameter with any of the API routes.

My Facebook to RSS open-source project is quite functional now! I have been working on it over this week and I have added some cool stuff.

- Access Facebook pages and public groups feed without using an account.
- Access Facebook profiles, pages, groups, and notifications when running the API with a Facebook account.
- Your login is automatically saved and refreshed on each API request to keep you signed in.

@chrisba Have you tried changing shortcuts mode? Like from GNOME to KDE

@MustafaKulle Well, the tool uses *your* account under the hood and runs on a server to fetch Facebook stuff, but I got a suggestion to add a mode to work without an account too and I will be working on it.

@adnan360 Well, the whole point of the project is to use an account, since RSS Bridge already works without logging in. But I might add this as well depending on how things go.

Under the hood, the tool uses Playwright for browser automation and it seems that it supports HTTP/SOCKS proxy usage. I have opened an issue for this. It should be easy to implement.

@immychan Thanks :D I will try my best to make it functional and stable asap.

@Thibaut It shouldn't be very hard to add so yeah, I have opened an issue for it in the repository here github.com/yshalsager/facebook
