Transform Facebook JSON exports to MF2 JSON
#!/usr/bin/env python
'''
Usage:
./transform <path-to-facebook-export.json>
This will transform everything using granary and then place
individual files into a directory called "mf2."
You can generate a full export from Facebook using this project:
https://github.com/danburzo/fb-export
Happy freedom from Facebook :)

for post in posts:
mf2 = microformats2.object_to_json(facebook.post_to_object(post))
mf2_json = json.dumps(mf2, indent=2)
with open('mf2/%s.json' % mf2['properties']['published'][0], 'wb') as mf2_file:
mf2_file.write(mf2_json)
