Project description

LittleBird is a Python 3.6+ asynchronous library for accessing twitter utilizing new python features: async generators, type hinting, etc.


Currently only the oauth1 methods are supported (application only authentication, user account access).

import asyncio
import contextlib

from littlebird import LittleBird
from littlebird.web import OAuth1HttpClient

little_bird = LittleBird(OAuth1HttpClient(
    # required for oauth1 signing:
    consumer_key: str,
    consumer_secret: str,
    # optionally necessary for endpoints requiring a user's scope:
    access_token: Optional[str] = None,
    access_token_secret: Optional[str] = None

async def main(little_bird):
    # watch the random sampling of tweets chosen by twitter
    async for tweet in little_bird.sample():

if __name__ == '__main__':
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    with contextlib.suppress(KeyboardInterrupt):
