make tweets from your shell
Small node.js cli tool that allows to tweet from bash, zsh, whatever..
Install module globally:
npm install -g node-tweet-cli
You will be able to use
tweet command in your shell.
Start with authorizing your twitter account and start tweeting :)
There are description of available commands here:
tweet login command manages authorization flow. It redirects you to
http://twitter.com/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=.. where you need to login and get a PIN. Enter PIN in the terminal prompt and "voilà!" - you are able to tweet from your terminal.
tweet logout command unauthorizes your twitter account from node-tweet-cli.
tweet create command allows you to post tweets into your twitter account. You will be prompted to type a message.
tweet read command posts message to twitter but reads it from
stdin, enabling use with scripting.
echo "your tweet message" | tweet read
tweet read < yourInputFile
tweet whoami command shows current twitter account name.
Streams tweets to the console, optionally as json.
tweet stream twitter
tweet stream twitter --json
Warning The latter option dumps a lot of json in your console. Make sure your console is able to keep up, or (preferably) pipe to another utility. The latter is actually the use case this option is designed for.
Streams your timeline to the console, optionally as json.
tweet timeline --json
