Tweetuoso is a very light Twitter Command-line client developed in Python.
Tweetuoso is a very light Twitter Command-line client developed in Python. The main goal of Tweetuoso is to become a fully-fledged twitter client with the same functions as the online version.
For now, it allows you to:
- check your timeline
- post tweets
- show tweets that mentionned you
- retweet a tweet
- get your profile details
- follow or unfollow people
- search for ‘query’
- stalk people (or yourself)
- show current trends
- automatically followback your followers
- Archive all your tweets to a text file
- stream tweets (sample or filter mode)
- send / read direct messages
More is still to come…
- Python 2.6+ (not tested with Python 3+)
- tweepy >= 2.1 (for a Twitter API connection, obviously)
- GitPython 0.3.2 (if you wish to use tweet_commit)
- requests 1.1.0
- colorama 0.2.5
- Working API keys from Twitter
Remember to configure Tweetuoso’s config.py file before installing!
Get the latest version (from GitHub):
$ wget -O /tmp/tweetuoso-master.zip https://github.com/c0ding/tweetuoso/archive/master.zip $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-tweepy python-requests python-colorama python-pytz $ cd /tmp $ unzip tweetuoso-master.zip $ chmod -R 777 tweetuoso-master $ cd tweetuoso-master $ nano /tweetuoso/config.py (edit variables) $ python setup.py install
$ pip install tweetuoso
Step 1: Register a new client app with Twitter
Navigate to https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new. You might have to log into the Twitter Developers site first, if you’‘re not already. Fill in the registration fields.
Note: whatever you specify for Application Name will be the via
name your followers see in the details of tweets issued from your command line app.
Step 2: OAuth settings
Next, the app needs to be authorized to connect to your account so it can send tweets under your name. Paste the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret into config.py file. Then save and run Tweetuoso on your system.
You should see a prompt like this:
$ Please visit this url to get your access keys: <url> $ PIN:
Open that URL in your browser. You should see the standard OAuth Twitter connection screen. Click Allow.
Twitter will then provide you with a PIN code that authenticates the connection between the client app and your Twitter account.
Enter this PIN into the Tweetuoso prompt:
$ PIN: 2781961
Tweetuoso will then print out another key/secret pair: (The values will be different each time!)
$ access_token = '124242RCyi3g0cZ4r5BWL047rsh0S0yv5VxAGwTKCOsHAb' $ access_secret = 'kaTXiC489qo8y6haTBSlwOqR1syG83tzPG2StdQ'
Keep this information on your screen because well need it in the next step.
Step 3: Paste the keys into Tweetuoso
Paste the Access Token and Access Secret from the end of step 2 into the auth.py file, filling the access_token and access_secret constants.
Step 4: Application Type
On the Twitter Developer website, navigate to the Settings tab. Allow your application Read, Write and direct messages access.
Finally, were all set up. Our command line app is registered as a Twitter client and the app is connected to our Twitter user account.
Simply follow the steps above, edit the config.py file to suit your needs and launch tweetuoso.py. Enjoy!
