twoot.py (v1.3.0)

Sync Twitter and Mastodon nicely ― forward tweets to Mastodon and forward toots to Twitter, carefully not to make duplicate posts on a service. Other features of twoot.py:

  • images are also forwarded each other,
  • sync so-called "thread" and "self BT/RT" as well,
  • shortened URLs (such as https://t.co/*) are expanded before posting, and
  • multiple pairs of Mastodon/Twitter accounts are supported.

Requirements

This script is designed to work with Python (3.5 or later).

Installation

All dependencies can be installed by one shot:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Setup running

After installing the script, run twoot.py once by hand and fill the following fields:

$ python twoot.py

All configuration done. Thanks!

When the setup mode is completed successfully, all necessary configuration will be stored under $HOME/.twoot.py. No toots nor tweets are sent within the setup mode.

Note: If you want to change these configuration, execute python twoot.py --setup to start setup mode once again or just edit $HOME/.twoot.py/default.json directly.

Regular running

After the setup running, set cron (or whatever) to run python twoot.py regularly, e.g., running every 15 sec:

* * * * * for i in `seq 0 15 59`;do (sleep ${i}; python /path/to/twoot.py --log=/path/to/twoot.log) & done;

Using profile

You can detect a profile with the command line option --profile (-p) to use this script for multiple accounts. The configuration and the data for a profile NAME are saved to ~/.twoot.py/NAME.json and ~/.twoot.py/NAME.pickle respectively. When you omit the command line option, the "default" profile is automatically selected.
