Tuiter 0.1.0

I’ve been working on this node.js twitter library called Tuiter (That’s how Twitter sounds in spanish). I think it’s mature enough to release the first stable version of the module.

Features

For usage and installation steps you can go to the README. This are the most important features:

  • All API methods available (for Search, REST and Streaming APIs)
  • Params preprocessing: Locations as {lat: num,long:num } arrays, allow array params
  • API HTTP Error handling
  • Paging for REST API
  • Custom results for Search API

Demo

Few weeks ago I deployed a demo on Heroku using Tuiter, Google Maps, Socket.IO and ExpressJS. This is just an example of the power of the twitter Streaming API. Can’t wait to see your own demos/apps!

State of the art

I’m working on automatic reconnection for the Streaming API calls for a next version. Another feature I want to add is the possibility to filter by location names (like “Buenos Aires” or “Asia” instead of bounding boxes). Stay tuned.
