Follow All

Build Status Dependency Status Coverage Status

Follow All allows you to select a Twitter list and follow all of its members.


Follow All


You can see a running version of the application at


git clone git://
cd follow-all
bundle install


Running your own instance of Follow All requires you to register an app with Twitter to obtain OAuth credentials. After you register your app, go to the "Settings" tab, set a Callback URL in the "Application Type" section, and click "Update this Twitter application's settings." It doesn't matter what the URL is, as long as one is set.

Once you obtain credentials, substitute your consumer key and secret into the command below. You can find your consumer key and secret in your Twitter app's "Keys and Access Tokens" section.

Submitting an Issue

We use the GitHub issue tracker to track bugs and features. Before submitting a bug report or feature request, check to make sure it hasn't already been submitted. When submitting a bug report, please include a Gist that includes a stack trace and any details that may be necessary to reproduce the bug, including your gem version, Ruby version, and operating system. Ideally, a bug report should include a pull request with failing specs.

Submitting a Pull Request

  1. Fork the repository.
  2. Create a topic branch.
  3. Add specs for your unimplemented feature or bug fix.
  4. Run bundle exec rake test. If your specs pass, return to step 3.
  5. Implement your feature or bug fix.
  6. Run bundle exec rake test. If your specs fail, return to step 5.
  7. Run open coverage/index.html. If your changes are not completely covered by your tests, return to step 3.
  8. Add, commit, and push your changes.
  9. Submit a pull request.

Supported Ruby Version

This library aims to support and is tested against Ruby version 1.9.3.

If something doesn't work on this version, it should be considered a bug.

This library may inadvertently work (or seem to work) on other Ruby implementations, however support will only be provided for the version above.

If you would like this library to support another Ruby version, you may volunteer to be a maintainer. Being a maintainer entails making sure all tests run and pass on that implementation. When something breaks on your implementation, you will be personally responsible for providing patches in a timely fashion. If critical issues for a particular implementation exist at the time of a major release, support for that Ruby version may be dropped.
