Twitter4R 0.2.0: Twitter API for Ruby
Twitter4R is a Ruby library to access Twitter API functionality developed by Susan Potter. Twitter itself is sort of social network with a differentiation: it allows you to send to and receive updates from your friends instantly.
The recently released major upgrade Twitter4R 0.2.0 offers significant improvements:
- 100% coverage of official Twitter REST API
- RSpec specifications with 100% code coverage
- Cleaning and removal of previously inconsistent API
Here's a simplified example Twitter4R usage:
gem('twitter4r', '>=0.2.0') require('twitter') client = Twitter::Client.new(:login => 'mylogin', :password => 'mypassword') new_message = client.message(:post, 'I am addicted to Twitter', 'myfriendslogin')
To install it:
gem install twitter4r
Note: As an alternative, Twitter gem, as covered previously at Ruby Inside, is also available.
