Tweetkit

Tweetkit is a Ruby wrapper for Twitter's V2 API.

Tweetkit is inspired by the original Twitter gem and the Octokit ecosystem.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tweetkit'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install tweetkit

Usage

  1. Require the gem.
  require 'tweetkit'
  1. Initialize a Tweetkit::Client instance by passing in your Bearer Token to work with Twitter's OAuth 2.0 authorization requirement. You should also pass in your consumer key and token to perform requests that require OAuth 1.0 authorization.

Read more on how to apply and access your Twitter tokens here.

  # Initializing via options
  client = Tweetkit::Client.new(bearer_token: 'YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN_HERE')

  # Initializing via options with OAuth 1.0 credentials
  client = Tweetkit::Client.new(bearer_token: 'YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN_HERE', consumer_key: 'YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY_HERE', consumer_secret: 'YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET_HERE')

  # You can also initialize the client with a block
  client = Tweetkit::Client.new do |config|
    config.bearer_token = 'YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN_HERE'
    config.consumer_key = 'YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY_HERE'
    config.consumer_secret = 'YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET_HERE'
  end
  1. Interact with the Twitter API as needed. Below is an example of fetching a tweet with id 1234567890.
  response = client.tweet(1234567890)

Documentation

Coming soon.

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies.

To run tests, first copy .env.example to .env, and modify it to include a valid Bearer token for the Twitter v2 API. Then, run bundle exec rspec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
