Social Current

Makes it easy to integrate a social activity stream into your application from third party APIs. Social Current currently only supports GitHub and Twitter but feel free to contribute additional integrations.

Social Current Example


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'social_current'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install social_current


You may use Social Current directly within your view like.

<%{ :twitter => "tristanoneil", :github => "tristanoneil" }).build.each do |item| %>
  <%= item[:message] >
<% end %>

Though it's probably a better idea to add a method to a class or model like.

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  def stream{ :twitter => twitter_username, :github => github_username }).build

Then you can easily access this from within your view like.

<% do |item| %>
  <%= item[:message] %>
<% end %>
