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
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
- 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
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
