The FBCMD (Facebook Command Line Interface) project is no longer active. You can still find the lukewarm corpse of the project at the links below.
I stared this project in 2007, when both facebook and I were very different.
- I am now raising a family and have a demanding job. When I do get precious "free" time, there are other projects I'd
rather spend my time on.
- I stopped using FBCMD myself. I log in to facebook once a week and lurk around for a bit, but I rarely interact or share anything.
- Facebook is moving away from apps that have broad access and permissions.
- It was too frustrating to keep up with facebook perpetually depricating features and changing its API.
The straw(s) that broke the camel's back were: depricating API 1.0, removing offline_access and changing the authentication model.
I want to thank the thousands that used FBCMD, the hundreds of people who sent kind words my way, and the dozens of people who contributed.
I have over 300 email messages in a "fbcmd-todo" folder that I will probably never "do". My sincerest apologies.

FBCMD Still exists on the internet:
