Twitterchive - Post the day's twits to Livejournal or elsewhere
April 23, 2008
There are services such as LoudTwitter that will submit digests of your twitters to LiveJournal, TypePad, or other blogging service/software. Wordpress has plugins that will do that.
However, my experience with LoudTwitter has been that it is fairly unreliable. Thus, I coded up a fairly rudimentary python script that will grab that day’s twitters and post them to LiveJournal, or elsewhere.
You can find it here: Twitterchive v1.0. Edit the
twitterchive.py file to include your Twitter username and password.
- A POSIX-compliant system (such as Linux or Cygwin)
- Charm, a LJ client in Python. Copy the
ljcharm.pyfiles to the same dir as Twitterchive. Copy the
~/.charmrc. Alternatively, just run
python setup.py install, and edit
twitterchive.pyto change the call to
~/.charmrcto include your livejournal username and password. I recommend you follow the procedures described therein and only use the md5 digest of your password in this file.
