Tweet from TB
May 27th, 2011, 3:05pm
 
Hello,

I am quite new to TB and the RunCommand actions. I downloaded a file (i.e. named Twitterbox_553.tbx) with some templates showing how to send TB notes to Twitter. However, after changing USERNAMETongueASSWORD with my credentials it simply does not work (no tweets sent on adding notes to the adornment).

Has something changed in Twitter API since that TBX file was created? If so, any idea how to update the RunCommand line to have it working again?

I have XCode 4, X11, and curl installed. Do I have to change something so TB access the Shell?

Thank you very much!!!!

Cheers

Mariano

Yes -- the Twitter API has changed since the demo.  So the general principles apply, but the details have changed.  

If there's interest specifically in Twitter, or perhaps in another Web service, we'll be happy to do a fresh demo.  Perhaps another forum reader has already updated this?

As noted in answer to Mariano's parallel posting on this, I think Twitter recent fiddling around with the way in which you can access Twitter means the method we used to read from/post to Twitter may simply no longer be available.  If so, only twitter can change the API, there's nothing Tinderbox can do.

I'll try and review my old demo next week after the Holiday weekend.

Mariano. I meant to note before, can you email successfully from your command line? You need to verify that *before* trying the demo. I recall now that in going from OS 10.4 -> 10.5 ->10.6 this has become harder to do without fiddling under the hood. I guess it got disabled as a 'safety' measure. If you can't email To get mail working , I'd recommend an OS related forum as it's a whole different area of expertise.
