This application is a simplistic example of consuming the Twitter REST API from a Rails app.
It uses the Twitter gem to fetch tweets from a user's timeline and display them on the page in a basic UI.
git clone https://github.com/turingschool-examples/twitter-demo.git cd twitter-demo bundle rake db:create db:migrate rails s
(Yes, the API credentials are hardcoded in the app. This makes it easier for students to set up.)
Currently this app is being used as a starting point for a Turing lesson on Mocking External APIs.
