Installing the Latest Tweets plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.
GPM Installation (Preferred)
The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:
bin/gpm install latest-tweets
This will install the Latest Tweets plugin into your
/user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under
To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under
/your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to
latest-tweets. You can find these files on GitHub or via GetGrav.org.
You should now have all the plugin files under
If you use the admin plugin, you can install directly through the admin plugin by browsing the
Plugins tab and clicking on the
Before configuring this plugin, you should copy the
user/config/plugins/latest-tweets.yaml and only edit that copy.
Firstly you will need to register your app / website with Twitters developer site. (https://dev.twitter.com) you will then get your consumer key, consumer secret, access token and your access token secret. You then need to add them to your config file.
Here is the default configuration and an explanation of available options:
enabled: true twitter_id: devlomthemes #twitter screen name, owner in Access Token settings tweets_to_display: 5, # Number of tweets you would like to display. ignore_replies : true # Ignore replies from the timeline. include_rts: true # Include retweets. consumerkey: XXX #Consumer Key (API Key) consumersecret: XXX #Consumer Secret (API Secret) accesstoken: XXX #Access Token accesstokensecret: XXX #Access Token Secret built_in_css: true fontawesome: true
Note that if you use the admin plugin, a file with your configuration, and named latest-tweets.yaml will be saved in the
user/config/plugins/ folder once the configuration is saved in the admin.
Use latest-tweets/templates/partials/latest-tweets.html.twig template with built in styling or build your own theme.
Twitter feeds may contain UTF-8 characters. I have found that running PHP’s utf_decode method on tweets didn’t have the expected result, so my recommendation is to instead set the charset of your HTML page to UTF-8. Really we should all be doing this anyway. (http://www.w3.org/International/O-charset)

Orginally using Pixel Acres script (http://f6design.com/journal/2010/10/07/display-recent-twitter-tweets-using-php/). But since Twitter has retired API v1.0, the script no longer worked because it didn't include authentication. I have now modified the script to include authentication using API v1.1.
