If you want to use this distribution to create an installation or a twitter wall, just customize bin/index_standalone.html according to your needs. Some caveats: The “showOnlyToday” option does not recognize when you run the installtion for multiple days.

    $twitterURL = ''.str_replace($this->baseURL,'',$this->url['path']);
  • provide a twitterProxyURL parameter pointing to your twitterproxy installation in bin/index.html
  • upload the bin/ directory to your webserver
