  • check oauth client, streamline!?

  • add autocomplete for API commands

  • profile delete and rename

  • history scope of profile name

  • support for urlencoded in post/put body -> set correct mime type

FAQ

What's the difference to the client provided by oauth gem?

problem with oauth cli client provided with the gem is the lack of post request with body content as well as easy usage with repl to have proper CLI options

Are there other clients of similar manner?

Yes: github.com/marcel/twurl Very similar but Twitter specific. I whish I'd spot this project earlier ;-)
