twitter_instapaper

by Brad Bollenbach

twitter_instapaper extracts links from favourited tweets and sends them to Instapaper.

Install

Grab the gem:

$ gem install twitter_instapaper

Set it up:

$ twit_inst --configure
Twitter username: 30sleeps
Instapaper username: bradb@30sleeps.com
Instapaper password: somepass
Configuration saved successfully.

Then install twit_inst into your crontab:

$ crontab -e

To poll your Twitter feed every 5 minutes for new favourites:

# This is what works for my rvm-based setup!
*/5 * * * * bash --login -c twit_inst

twit_inst only polls your latest 20 favourites each time, so you should ensure your cron job is set at a reasonable enough interval that no favourites will be missed.

Please email any feedback or bug reports to bradb@30sleeps.com.
