I already have two sets of open source Twitter API code: the streaming API framework, and my Engagement Programming book. Both of require a fair amount of setup, and the code is very interrelated. This new project will be a set of individual tools that can be run by themselves or called from any application that seems some Twitter integration.
All you’ll need to run these tools will be a common set of library files, which I’ll document in the next post. The tools will need to be able to connect to database and make API calls with OAuth. I’ll package these together in a single zip to make installation easy.
The next post has download instructions for the common libraries used by all the tools.
