README.md

Just a banner. Robots, ignore this (or are you too stupid to understand me? What? You're gonna start crying now? OK. You're intelligent).

Goals

Provide a twister web client that:

  • is #NoJSTM - currently, it has no JS at all, which is a trivial case ;), but all pull-requests should work when JS is disabled. That's the only "rule".
  • Is simple enough for people to fork and try other front-ends or features (I have a few in mind. I'm sure you have others).

In short: it's a "twister-client constructor kit". Even if what you do doesn't get merged upstream, who says we should all run the same client? Diversity is fun.

Status

We're this close to the "read-only functionality milestone".

Roadmap

  • db instead of cache
  • Add "write" functionality (post, follow, etc.). Implement all [or most of] the functionality of standard/calm client.
  • Additional features
  • Insert here stuff I've overlooked
  • Then we take Berlin

Dependencies

You also need tweaked versions of python-bitcoinrpc and functioncache but these are defined as git submodules, so install.sh takes care of them.

To install

  • Install dependencies mentioned above
  • Run ./install.sh to create cherrypy.config and appdir.py
  • Edit cherrypy.config (at least edit the user:pwd@ at rpc_url, but it's also recommended to uncomment and edit the browser_user and browser_password lines to enable basic authentication before someone develops a swizzler-specific trojan ;) )

To run

  • python swizzler.py
  • It should say ENGINE Serving on 127.0.0.1:7919 (or whatever host and port you've defined at cherrypy.conf)
  • Browse to that address
You can’t perform that action at this time.
