Gutter

Gutter is a free Twitter client written in Shoes for Ruby (www.shoooes.net)

Why

I wrote this to better understand Shoes, and more importantly, packaging applications with Shoes.

The exact same codebase works in Linux, OSX and hopefully Windows (tested in Windows 7).

Install

In Linux:

* http://github.com/toothrot/gutter/downloads
* ./gutter-(version).run

In OSX:

* http://github.com/toothrot/gutter/downloads
* gutter-version.dmg

In Windows:

* Install Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/)
* Install Shoes (http://shoooes.net/)
* Download the latest Gutter .shy (http://github.com/toothrot/gutter/downloads)
* Open the .shy from inside Shoes!

Features

* Built-in Twitpic viewing
* Anti-Social Networking:
  * Hide posts from a User
  * Hide posts matching a Regular Expression
* Basic theme support
* More...

Things

* Use Shoes 2 from http://www.shoooes.net
* Growl/Libnotify: install "growlnotify" or "notify-send" (if you want it).
* Windows support coming soon.

TODO

* Direct messaging needs to work.
* add images to growl/libnotify
* multiple accounts
* handle failed connections/timeouts better

Also

* Icons are from the Silk Icon set (http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/)
* Gutter is GPLv3
