Fableau is a Tableau Web Data Connector for the Facebook Graph API which I’ve now released the Alpha version for. Tableau, for those who don’t know, is a very powerful data visualisation and analysis tool, and over the last few months I’ve been doing a great deal of work on Tableau API integrations.
reduce(). This code is then compiled using a combination of Laravel Mix, Webpack and Babel. One note on the build is that the Tableau client is not the most up to date, so Babel was used to polyfill certain things like Promises.
You can use Fableau to pull Facebook data by visiting the Fableau.io website I have set up. Alternatively if you’d like to setup and use Fableau on your own server you will need NodeJs and NPM installed along with Yarn. And to compile simply run Yarn followed by Webpack. You will also need to set up your own Facebook app and swap out the client id.
yarn npm run webpack
Obviously this is the Alpha release of this codebase, so it is by no means perfect. I need to tidy it up a little, add more comments and test it further. It should though provide a good building block from which to build more advanced Tableau Web Data Connectors and start visualising data in Tableau. I will appreciate any feedback you can provide.
