(Objective-C) Facebook Download all Photos to Local Files

Demonstrates how to download all of one's Facebook photos to a local filesystem directory. This sample code keeps a local cache to avoid re-downloading the same photos twice. The program can be run again after a time, and it will download only photos that haven't yet been downloaded.

// This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
// See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

// This example will use a local disk cache to avoid re-fetching the same
// photo id after it's been fetched once.
CkoCache *fbCache = [[CkoCache alloc] init];
// The cache will use 1 level of 256 sub-directories.
fbCache.Level = [NSNumber numberWithInt:1];
// Use a directory path that makes sense on your operating system..
[fbCache AddRoot: @"C:/fbCache"];

// This example assumes a previously obtained an access token
CkoOAuth2 *oauth2 = [[CkoOAuth2 alloc] init];
oauth2.AccessToken = @"FACEBOOK-ACCESS-TOKEN";

// Connect to Facebook.

    return;
}

// Provide the authentication credentials (i.e. the access key)
[rest SetAuthOAuth2: oauth2];

// There are two choices:  
// We can choose to download the photos the person is tagged in or has uploaded
// by setting type to "tagged" or "uploaded".

// To download all photos, we begin with an outer loop that iterates over
// the list of photo nodes in pages.  Each page returned contains a list of 
// photo node ids.  Each photo node id must be retrieved to get the download URL(s)
// of the actual image.

// I don't know the max limit for the number of records that can be downloaded at once.
