CommandBox Compatible


This CF wrapper can be installed as standalone or as a ColdBox Module. Either approach requires a simple CommandBox command:

box install monkehtweet

Then follow either the standalone or module instructions below.


This wrapper will be installed into a directory called monkehTweet and then can be instantiated via new with the following constructor arguments:

     consumerKey			=	'',
     consumerSecret		=	'',
     oauthToken			=	'',
     oauthTokenSecret	=	'',
     userAccountName    =	'',
     parseResults  =	true

ColdBox Module

This package also is a ColdBox module as well. The module can be configured by creating a `monkehTweeta configuration structure in your application configuration file: config/Coldbox.cfc with the following settings:

monkehTweet = {
     consumerKey			=	'',
     consumerSecret		=	'',
     oauthToken			=	'',
     oauthTokenSecret	=	'',
     userAccountName		=	'',
     parseResults		=	true,

Then you can leverage the CFC via the injection DSL: monkehTweet@MonkehTweet
