Kanca is an application to analyze Facebook Group activity. Its key features are:

  • Open sourced, as you can see here.
  • Fully client side, hosted on GitHub pages (zero cost, no data persisted on server).
  • Analyze user FB group feed behavior like most active users, most liked posts, etc.
  • Analyze FB group user engagement like new users, user retention, etc.

Local Development


  1. Node.js 6+
  2. Facebook Developer's Application, create it at https://developers.facebook.com for free
  3. Make sure you enabled Facebook Login feature and put http://localhost:3000 exist in your Valid OAuth redirect URIs (Facebook Login -> Settings)


  1. Go to project root directory, copy .env.template to .env (edit it as you need, look at description below)
  2. Install its dependencies $ npm install or $ yarn install

IDE/ Text Editor/ OS Configuration

Since this project uses Flow, and some environment specific configuration, some IDE or Text Editors needs additional configuration.


Please use Bash on Ubuntu on Windows or Windows Subsystem Linux for local development.


Add "javascript.validate.enable": false on your VSCode config (.vscode/settings.json).

It would be better if you install this Flow plugin as well.


  1. Run $ npm start or $ yarn start
  2. Open browser at http://localhost:3000
