Fastertweet simple and Fast Twitter client : How to install

Python and Qt

The first reason to create this client was to learn python , and i have learned a lot.
From few days i was searching for a simple twitter client , from simple twitter client i meanwhich one has the function of sending tweets only , my twitter timeline is very fast and don’t want all that notification when i m at work , which hotot or trupial and other clients provide . so I created this software Fastertweet by using Tweepy twitter api , pyhton and pyqt4

 The first reason to create this client was to learn python .

It  is simplest twitter client start the client , type your tweet and hit enter that is it .you can download it from here https://github.com/vzades/Fastertweet/blob/master/Fastertweet/fastertweet.py  .

It can be used in Linux only and here are its dependency

  1. Pyhton
  2. Pygtk 
  3. Tweepy (Twitter Api )

Pyhton and pygtk are installed already in fedora (I am usin fedora 15 )  you can download Tweepy rpm package from here

Because i don’t know how to package a software in RPM or DEB so you will find only executable files so here is the way of how to installing the client

1 Go to terminal and run the onetime.py from following command
python onetime.py
It will open a browser to authenticate your twitter account to my client after authorizing go to the terminal and hit Enter , That is it you are now authorized with this client

2. Make the fasterweet.py file executable  (you can run it from terminal also ) , for right click the file go the permission tab and you will find the option of making the file executable  . Now you can start the client by clicking the Fastertweet.py file

here are  the screenshot of the software
