Twitter4R Announcements

Written on 8:46:00 PM by S. Potter

First off I have been meaning to post an entry letting people know of a recently released Rails application written by Sergio Santos called TwitterNotes that is using the Twitter4R gem. Thanks Sergio (and anyone else that worked on the project - sorry if I left you off). Also Sergio emailed yesterday requesting message paging support with a suggested patch (thanks for contributing back - muchas gracias). This evening I released Twitter4R version 0.2.5 that incorporates the necessary code changes for this support. What does this mean? Previously you would have only been able to get the last 20 sent/received direct messages from the Twitter4R bindings doing something like the following:

messages = client.messages(:sent)
Now you can request specific pages like so:

messages = client.messages(:sent, :page => 2)
The same is true for the :received case. To install the Twitter4R RubyGem simply run the following in your terminal/console:
$ sudo gem install twitter4r
Give the Rubyforge mirrors a few hours to sync if you are only getting Twitter4R v0.2.4. Thanks and enjoy!

    Thanks for mentioning the TwitterNotes application and for releasing the patch so quickly.

    Oh and I'm Portuguese so the thank you expression is 'Obrigado' ;)

    Sorry Sérgio. And Obrigado! Which in babelfish translates to "debtor", which actually makes a lot of sense.

    Thanks again:)
