ctwitter

ctwitter is a client-side twitter 'streaming' library. It doesn't actually use the Twitter Streaming API, it uses JSONP polling of the Search API. It integrates with Processing.js so that twitter data can be used without writing any external JavaScript or server-side code.

Use Cases

ctwitter is designed to be used in client-side web development courses to give students some experience with real-time data before they learn about client side data.

It also can be used to create prototype processing.js sketches that utilize 'real-time' twitter streaming.

API

Documentation coming soon. In the meantime, take a look at the examples in the examples folder. It's designed to be very similar to the Node.js ntwitter library.

Example

var twitter = new ctwitter.CTwitter();
twitter.stream("statuses/filter", { lang:"en", track:["node.js", "javascript"] }, function (stream) {
    stream.on("data", function (tweet) {
        console.log(tweet.text);
    });
});
