MurmuringSpider is a concise Twitter crawler.
When we write a data-mining / text-mining application based on twitter's timeline, we have to collect and store tweets first.
I am irritated with writing such crawler repeatedly, so I wrote this.
What you have to do is only to add query and to run them periodically.
Thanks to consistent Twitter API and twitter gem, it is quite easy to track various types of timelines (such as user_timeline, home_timeline, search...)
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install murmuring_spider
- Fork it
- Create your feature branch (
git checkout -b my-new-feature)
- Commit your changes (
git commit -am 'Added some feature')
- Push to the branch (
git push origin my-new-feature)
- Create new Pull Request
