Twitter suite for Weechat.
- Daniël Franke (@ainmosni) <daniel[at]ams-sec[dot]org>
Welcome to the wonderful world of weetwit, a plugin that will transform weechat to a (soon-to-be) fully-featured twitter client.
- Realtime streaming timeline.
- Updating, replying and retweeting according to Twitter standards.
- Aware of twitter URL shortening.
- Tools to query users and status updates.
- Able to (un-)follow directly from weechat.
- Share updates with IRC.
Before you can use it, you have to “create” a new application at twitter, the reason for this is that I can’t include the application keys without them becoming public knowledge. You can create the application at Twitter. The application needs read/write access.
First we need to install the module:
Installation through pip:
# pip install weetwit $ Copy the plugin to ~/.weechat/python
Installation from source:
# cd /path/to/source/files # pip install tweepy # python setup.py install $ cp plugin/weetwit.py ~/.weechat/python
Configuration of weechat:
] /python load weetwit.py ] /set plugins.var.python.weetwit.access_token access_token_goes_here ] /set plugins.var.python.weetwit.access_token_secret access_token_secret_goes_here ] /set plugins.var.python.weetwit.consumer_key consumer_key_goes_here ] /set plugins.var.python.weetwit.consumer_secret consumer_secret_goes_here ] /python reload weetwit
You should now have a running weetwit.
There are multiple configuration parameters you can alter, here is a short description of them.
- plugins.var.python.weetwit.show_in_current: Show the timeline in the current window.
- plugins.var.python.weetwit.storage_dir: The location of where all the weetwit related files will be kept.
- plugins.var.python.weetwit.timelined_location: The location of the timelined monitoring daemon.
- plugins.var.python.weetwit.trend_woeid: The woeid you want to see trends for, defaults to worldwide.
Many commands take <status identification> as argument, this can either be the ID of the status or a screen_name. In case of the screen_name, we will use the ID of last status by screen_name. (Note: if screen_name hasn’t showed up in your timeline, this won’t work.)
- /tweet <status>
- Update your status, this can be 140 characters long. URLs will be shortened using t.co by twitter.
- /tinfo <status identification>
- Shows more detailed information about a status update.
- /treply [.]<status identification> <message>
- Replies to the relevant status update, this will always start with the @screen_name of the person the status belonged to, if the identification is prefixed with a dot, a dot will be prepended to the message so that your other followers will see it as well.
- /retweet <status identification> [message]
- Retweets the relevant status update, if [message] is present this will prepended to the retweet.
- /tsearch <keywords>
- Opens a new buffer with a realtime search of <keywords>, you can only have a limited amount open of these at one time, opening more might stop already existing searches.
- /tshare <status identification>
- Shares the relevant status update with the current IRC channel.
- /twhois <screen_name>
- Displays information about screen_name.
- /tfollow <screen_name>
- Follows screen_name.
- /tunfollow <screen_name>
- Unfollows screen_name.
- /trending [woeid]
- Displays what’s trending in the location represented by [woeid]. If no woeid present it uses the woeid set at plugins.var.python.weetwit.trend_woeid.
- Displays woeids of available trend locations.
Q: Why does your script spawn an extra python process? A: Because weechat doesn’t support background threads, and blocks on long running operations, this process is what monitors your timeline. Q: I don’t want those ugly STATUSIDs in my weetwit buffer. A: Add a filter like this: “/filter add statusid python.weetwit * \[#STATUSID:” now you can toggle between them hidden and visible, depending on your needs.
