NAME

Facebook::InstantArticle - Helper class for generating Facebook Instant Articles markup.

DESCRIPTION

Facebook::InstantArticle is a simple helper class for generating Facebook Instant Articles markup.

At the moment it doesn't support all of the features, and both the internal and external API are subject to change in upcoming releases, so use with care.

SYNOPSIS

  use Facebook::InstantArticle;
  use DateTime;

  my $now = DateTime->now,

  my $ia = Facebook::InstantArticle->new(
      language          => 'en',
      url               => 'http://www.example.com/2016/08/17/some-article',
      title             => 'Some title',
      subtitle          => 'Got one?',
      kicker            => 'Nobody needs a kicker, but...',
      published         => "$now",
      modified          => "$now",
      auto_ad_placement => 0, # defaults to true
      style             => 'MyStyleName',
  );

  $ia->add_author(
      name        => 'Me Myself',
      description => 'A little bit about myself',
  );

  $ia->add_author(
      name        => 'Someone Else',
      description => 'A little bit about someone else',
  );

  $ia->add_lead_asset_image(
      source  => 'http://www.example.com/some_image.png',
      caption => 'Nice image, eh?',
  );

  # or

  $ia->add_lead_asset_video(
      source  => 'http://www.example.com/some_video.mp4',
      caption => 'Nice video, eh?',
  );

  $ia->add_paragraph(
      'Will be wrapped in a P element, conversion of inner HTML might be
       done, explained later in this documentation.'
  );

  $ia->add_image(
      source          => 'http://www.example.com/some_image.png',
      caption         => 'Nice picture, eh?',
      enable_comments => 1, # default false
      enable_likes    => 1, # default false
  );

  $ia->add_video(
      source  => 'http://www.example.com/some_video.mp4',
      caption => 'Nice video, eh?',
  );

  if ( $ia->is_valid ) {
      say $ia->to_string;
  }
  else {
      # There's probably something wrong with the Instant Article you
      # tried to create.
  }

    $ia->add_slideshow( $ss );

add_credit

Adds a credit to the article.

    $ia->add_credit( 'Thanks for helping me write this article, someone!' );

Adds a copyright to the article.

    $ia->add_copyright( 'Copyright 2016, Fubar Inc.' );

add_list

Adds a Facebook::InstantArticle::List object to the article.

    $ia->add_list(
        ordered  => 1, # default 0
        elements => [ 'Element #1', 'Element #2', 'Element 3' ],

is_valid

Returns true if the Instant Article _seems_ valid. At the moment this method performs very simple checkes, so don't rely 100% on it.

NOTE: Validation is also performed when you create an IA object, because its constructor requires a lot of attributes, and it will barf if you leave anyone of them out.

to_string

Generates the instant article and returns it as a string.
