sbt-twt is a twitter command for simple-built-tool (sbt), forked from @n8han's dispatch twine.

install it

add the following to ~/.sbt/plugins/build.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("com.eed3si9n" % "sbt-twt" % "0.2.0")

this adds a new command called twt with tab completion.

for 0.12.0-M2 add the following to ~/.sbt/plugins/build.sbt:

libraryDependencies += Defaults.sbtPluginExtra("com.eed3si9n" % "sbt-twt" % "0.2.1", "0.12.0-M2", "2.9.1")

uninstall it

remove the oauth token:

sbt "twt clearauth"

remove the entry from global build.sbt.


all you have to do now, is start up sbt, and in the console type twt <command>.

> twt
usage: twt <command>
  twt log [-12]             : prints 12 tweets from the timeline.
  twt unread [-100]         : prints unread tweets from the timeline.
  twt grep #scala [-12]     : searches for #scala. also as twt ?
  twt commit "tweet!"       : tweets quoted string. also as twt ci.
  twt re <id> "tweet!"      : tweets quoted string in reply to <id>.
  twt rt 118567297655902208 : retweets the tweet with <id>.
  twt fav <id> [-d]         : faves/unfaves the tweet with  <id>.
  twt pin 1234567           : authorizes twt to access twitter.
  twt clearauth             : clears the authorization.
> twt grep [tab]
grep "#sbt #scala"   grep #scala
> twt grep "#sbt #scala"

since we don't want to either store passwords on machine or send them over wire, it uses OAuth. and because this is not a web app, you'd need to type in a PIN number given to you by twitter.

$ sbt
> twt log
accept the authorization request in your browser, for the fun to begin.
(brower should pop up asking if you want to let sbt-twt access you account)
then run `twt pin <pin>` to complete the process.
> twt pin 8686743


most of the heavy lifting of talking to twitter was done by @n8han's dispatch library.

the Unicode rendering issue (mojibakeh)

you need to add -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 in sbt's launch script to render non-ASCII correctly.
