addicted to twitter

… a sweet little diddy that helps you twitter your life away

Install

sudo gem install twitter will work just fine. For command line use, you'll need a few other gems: sudo gem install main highline activerecord sqlite3-ruby

Examples

Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').update('watching veronica mars') # or you can use post Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').post('post works too')

# If you also need to use a proxy, you can set those as options
Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password', :proxy_host => 'your-proxy-host.com', :proxy_port => 8080)

puts “Public Timeline”, “=” * 50 Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').timeline(:public).each do |s| puts s.text, s.user.name puts end

puts '', “Friends Timeline”, “=” * 50 Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').timeline.each do |s| puts s.text, s.user.name puts end

puts '', “Friends”, “=” * 50 Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').friends.each do |u| puts u.name, u.status.text puts end

puts '', “Followers”, “=” * 50 Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').followers.each do |u| puts u.name, u.status.text puts end

Search Examples

Twitter::Search.new('httparty').each { |r| puts r.inspect } Twitter::Search.new('httparty').from('jnunemaker').each { |r| puts r.inspect } Twitter::Search.new.from('jnunemaker').to('oaknd1').each { |r| puts r.inspect }

Command Line Use

Note: If you want to use twitter from the command line be sure that sqlite3 and the sqlite3-ruby gem are installed. I removed the sqlite3-ruby gem as a dependency because you shouldn't need that to just use the API wrapper. Eventually I'll move the CLI interface into another gem. $ twitter

Will give you a list of all the commands. You can get the help for each command by running twitter [command] -h.

The first thing you'll want to do is install the database so your account(s) can be stored.

$ twitter install You can always uninstall twitter like this:

$ twitter uninstall Once the twitter database is installed and migrated, you can add accounts like this:

$ twitter add Add New Account: Username: jnunemaker Password (won't be displayed): Account added.

You can also list all the accounts you've added.

$ twitter list Account List * jnunemaker snitch_test

The * means denotes the account that will be used when posting, befriending, defriending, following, leaving or viewing a timeline.

To post using the account marked with the *, simply type the following:

$ twitter post “releasing my new twitter gem”

That is about it. You can do pretty much anything that you can do with twitter from the command line interface.
