Twat

Twat is a barebones cli interface to twitter, to let me tweet from my shell, where I do nearly everything. If it's useful to one person other than me then it's far exceeded my expectations.

Release status

Features are implemented pretty much as I see need for them, and I still haven't put together a test suite so changes may or may not leave the code in an inconsistent state.

Twat is feature complete enough to allow a user to send tweets without editing a config file, but much of it's interface is missing/counterintuitive. Support for sites other than twitter (identi.ca, for example) is planned but not implemented.

Credits and thanks

I used a lot the structure from codeplane to work out how to structure it. It's obviously not as neat, but the gemspec was shamelessly adapted from codeplane

the oauth and Twitter gems saved me from actually having to do much work.
