    Facebook Indicator Applet

    Hello,I'm trying to make an applet for ubuntu 11.04 which can display my facebook's new requests,messages and notifications.I want to employ python for the purpose.I've created a basic interface of the applet(you can have a look at it as i attached a pic here).But now i'm not getting any idea about how to proceed further and how i can fetch new notifications etc from fb profile.Also what technology can i use along with python.

    You could start with the pyfacebook library.

    Also, there is facebook's own python SDK.

    Hope that helps.
