Repository for Python scripts to display tweets on a character LCD connected to a Raspberry Pi.

Written by Drew Fustini. Released as public domain.

Blog post:

Displays tweets that contain a specified hashtag


sudo pip install twitter
mkdir ~/python
cd ~/python
git clone
git clone
cd tweetypi

The only required argument for display-hashtag is the hashtag. The '#' prefix should be omitted as it is added by the code. The defaults assume 16x2 char LCD.

sudo ./display-hashtag bears

Here would be the arguments for 20x4 LCD:

sudo ./display-hashtag --verbose --cols 20 --rows 4 --delay 3 bears
