A smart and nice Twitter client on terminal.
Terminal-based Twitter Client. Realtime tweetstream, compose, search , favorite … and much more fun directly from terminal.
You will need Python 2.7+ and pip.
sudo pip install rainbowstream
or try with a virtualenv
sudo pip install virtualenv # skip if you already have virtualenv virtualenv venv source venv/bin/activate # use the brand new virtualenv. pip install rainbowstream
and see your stream.
I shipped a feature which can display tweet’s images directly on terminal. You can try it with:
rainbow -iot # Or rainbow --image-on-term
In the first time you will be asked for authorization of Rainbow Stream app at Twitter. Just click the “Authorize access” button and paste PIN number to the terminal, the rainbow will start.
The interactive mode
While your personal stream is continued, you are also ready to tweet, search, reply, retweet… directly from console. Simply type “h” and hit the Enter key to see the help.
Input is in interactive mode. It means that you can use arrow key to move up and down history, tab-autocomplete or 2 tab to view available suggestion. Input history from previous run is available as well.
Available commands are listed in Read The Docs.
Rainbow Stream is shipped with some default themes. You can either change theme by theme command or create your favorite one.
