pyTwit 0.2.2

pyTwit version 0.2.2 is out now. I don’t have a Windows executable in this one. The biggest change in this version is coloured text. It really makes quite a big difference. A complete list of changes for this release from the previous release is available here or in the ‘CHANGELOG’ file in the archive which you can download here.

pyTwit 0.2.1

I just uploaded a new version of pyTwit. It fixes a bug in the previous version. The ‘timeline’ command was throwing up an index error so this fixes it. Many thanks to Jeff Dimond for reporting it in the first place.

I’ve decided to call my Twitter app pyTwit. I’ve searched the Twitter Fan Wiki list of apps and there doesn’t seem to be a pyTwit yet so I’ve decided to claim the name (hey it rhymes!)

Anyways, I did a version 0.1.1 which was basically adding the functionality for posting tweets but I’ve also added many more features (like displaying multiple timelines and a command system for using the different features) and redesigned the code structure so I’ve decided to call this one version 0.2

You can check it out here. I’ve also included a compiled Windows executable in the archive for those who are unfortunate enough to be running using Microsuck Windows…me included 🙁

My own Twitter app

OK I know we really don’t need yet another Twitter app but I’m doing this to practice programming in python. This is version 0.1 so I’ll definately add more stuff as I go along.

I’m using the XML feed from the Twitter REST API. I know there are modules to process the XML feed (like minidom and sax) but I decided to write my own method for processing the feed for educational purposes. My method won’t work with any feed (yet) but it’ll work fine for the Twitter feed.

At the moment, the app will only get your friends timeline and display it for you. I’ll add more functionality later this week if I have the time. In the mean time please try it out. All comments/criticism/suggestions/feedback are welcomed.
