We use Cyfe to check facebook analytics. I'd like to pull the checkin number from a page and using arduino, post the checkins for the last 7 days in our store.

The url for Cyfe is:
I followed and pulled the xpath, but all I get is an error "Error parsing document, try a different parse string"

Any ideas would be amazing.

It looks like the Cyfe page is dynamically populated by Javascript using jQuery.

curl ""

for example does not contain the XPath to the element that contains the number.

Is there an API you can use that directly gets you the data, rather than go through Cyfe? For example, can you use one of Facebook's APIs to retrieve the information directly? If so, can you use that in a ThingHTTP?

Thx fore reply'n Vinod! Honestly I'm not a coder, just tinerking. I'll look at FB again to see if I can find it. I think the problem I was running into is that FB gives the data, but then I have to find a way to use that data to get the info. I'll look into it a bit more. Nevertheless, thanks for the nudge in the right direction!
