README.rst

Twoot is a customizable minimal twitter client for WebKit-based SSBs. It is based on jQuery, Fluid and some basic HTML and CSS. The idea is to provide a native-looking application that is easy to customize to your specific needs. The twitter javascript code is inspired by the SeaOfClouds tweet code.

The code seems to work only with Fluid. In Safari, only one tweet appears.

My customization adds a multiline status input field, proper @replies, favoriting, retweeting, and paging back and forth through the tweet history.

Installation

Put all Twoot files in a folder somewhere. Download Fluid and create the Twoot.app by following the instructions here:

Launching the app will prompt you for your username and password on the first run.

Customization

The idea is that you should adapt Twoot to fit your requirements. If you know HTML and CSS it is trivial to add a new style. Create a new folder under the style directory and add all style files (css/images) there. Don't forget to change the stylesheet link in the twoot.htm file.

If you want to modify the way Twoot works, all javascript code is in the twoot.js file.

Currently Twoot has two themes, "Default" and "HUD-black" to match the window styles available in Fluid. To switch theme, edit twoot.htm and point the stylesheet to the correct css file in the styles folder.
