    Hello!

    I need to scrape public posts and comments from a user and collect it all in text to analyze.
    The plan is to not use the Facebook API since then I need the user to login with their account, I just need to collect what they posted publicly and get it as pure text for analyzing.

    I would be very happy if this could run as a simple PHP for javascript application.

    Do anyone here have any idea on how to do this?

    I can do that but manually, no software or not can be used.
    Let me if this works for you or not.

    The problem is that I need it to happen automatically when someone pushes a button :/
