Vincent

A tiny bot for spying and saving tweets you wish.

Run npm install vincent

Vincent uses Firebase for reading and saving tweets.

Step 1: Sign up on Firebase.com

Step 2: Create a new app on Firebase

Step 3: Create database schema like this:

VincentDatabase:
  tweetsAboutNodejs:
    settings:
      queries:
        "query-1":
          lastId: 0
          name: "nodejs.org"

Step 4: Create new JS file and require Vincent

var Vincent = require('vincent');

// Create a new instance of Vincent
var botik = new Vincent.core('YOUR FIREBASE URl');

// Create a new instance of Twitter service
var twitter = new VincentTwitter({
  consumer_key: '...',
  consumer_secret: '...',
  access_token: '...',
  access_token_secret: '...',
});

// Then start to spying like this
botik.start(function(settings) {
  botik.spyOn(function(result) {
    twitter.now(settings, result);
  });
});

// Get all results like this
botik.start(function() {
    var data = botik.getData();
    console.log(data);
});
