Convert a tweet stream to ics calendar

Project description

Tweetcal converts a Twitter feed into .ics (calendar) format.

Install

Install with pip install tweetcal

How to

Tweetcal has two commands. The first converts a Twitter archive to ics, the second saves recent tweets to ics.

Reading an archive

Download your Twitter archive and unzip it. Let’s say it’s in ~/Downloads/archive/. Run this command:

$ tweetcal read-archive ~/Downloads/archive calendar-file.ics

This will create calendar-file.ics. Test it by opening in your favorite calendaring program.

Saving recent tweets

For this section, you’ll need Twitter OAuth credentials.

Save those tokens to a yaml or json file. Use the sample format in the repo as a guide. Let’s say you’ve saved the file to ~/tweetcal.yaml and your username is ‘screen_name1’. Once that’s set up, run:

$ tweetcal stream --config ~/tweetcal.yaml --user screen_name1

Tweetcal leaves a note in ics files it creates to tell it where in an account’s stream to start downloading. Because of this, you should only use a file created by Tweetcal with tweetcal-stream.
