Twitter Ticker Tape

Screens tend to keep me awake in the evening so I wondered if I could print out my Twitter home timeline, live, as I read a book in the evening.

Here’s the final project in action:

A POS58 receipt printer printing out textual tweets

See my blog post for more extensive documentation and a beginner-friendly explanation of the project.


Install

Tested with: Python 3.5.3, Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)

pip3 install -r requirements.txt


Setup

Set your Twitter API keys inside config.py or export them as environmental values.

  • CONSUMER_KEY
  • CONSUMER_SECRET
  • ACCESS_TOKEN
  • ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET

If you're using a different printer to POS58 then export the vendor id and product id as environmental values.

  • ID_VENDOR
  • ID_PRODUCT

Run

python3 poller.py
