How to use Facebook Instant Games extension?


I managed to learn the basics of Defold. I like it a lot :slight_smile: !
I made myself a simple game.
However, I have a problem with the extension under Facebook.
I don’t understand this description Facebook Instant Games extension

  1. I created myself a new app (game) on
  2. I added APP ID to game.project
  3. I added l fbinstant folder to my project

I don’t know how to implement FB API and run my game.
Can I test such game in IDE or I have to upload game to Facebook ?

Can someone send me a simple example e.g. with a button for facebook ?
The tictactoe example is too difficult for me. I will be grateful
