Tweetify

Tiny JavaScript library to linkify urls, hashes and usernames of a tweet. Latest version is always at github.com/localhost/tweetify.

Uses the JSpec framework for BDD testing (only required for Tweetify development).

Usage

Include tweetify.js (or tweetify.min.js) via the script tag in your project and tweetify (or just linkify / hashify / userify) strings e.g. like this: "This is just some #Tweet".tweetify()

<script>
  // quick example using jQuery to fetch tweets
  $.getJSON('http://twitter.com/status/user_timeline/localhost.json?count=5&callback=?', function(json) {
    var tweets = $('#twitter ul.tweets');
    tweets.empty();
    $.each(json, function(i, tweet) {
      tweets.append('<li class="tweet">' + tweet.text.tweetify() + '</li>');
    }
  }
</script>

Note: You also override the Tweetify object with custom Twitter links and regexes.
