Twitter plugin for django-blog-zinnia

Project description

Zinnia-twitter is a package putting your entries on Twitter.

Installation

  • Install the package on your system:

    $ pip install zinnia-twitter
    

    Tweepy will also be installed as a dependency.

  • Register the 'zinnia_twitter' in your INSTALLED_APPS after the 'zinnia' application.

  • Define these following settings with your credentials:

    • TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY
    • TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET
    • TWITTER_ACCESS_KEY
    • TWITTER_ACCESS_SECRET

Note that the authentification for Twitter has changed since September 2010. The actual authentification system is based on oAuth. That’s why now you need to set these 4 settings. If you don’t know how to get these information, follow this excellent tutorial at:

http://talkfast.org/2010/05/31/twitter-from-the-command-line-in-python-using-oauth/

You can replace the script mentionned in the step 3 of the tutorial by the get_twitter_access management command provided by the application, once you have your CONSUMER_KEY and CONSUMER_SECRET.

Now in the admin, you can post an update containing your entry’s title and the shortened URL of your entry.
