twittertron3000

A little Python app to display Tweets on the Display-O-Tron 3000 - a Raspberry Pi add-on board by Pimoroni. A work in progress.

Requirements

Hardware

Software

  • Python 2.7
  • tweepy
  • dot3k

Installation:

sudo apt-get install pip
sudo pip install tweepy dot3k

Also see dot3k's requirements at pimoroni/dot3k

Python 3

Unfortunately the dependencies don't support Python 3. Blame smbus and tweepy. I'm sorry.

Twitter Application Setup

Set up a Twitter application at dev.twitter.com - see instructions at raspi.tv

Then copy the relevant API keys in to the auth.py
