If you are a python developer and you tried to develop some application for twitter, you must have came acrossed python-twitter. Which provides you a pythonic interface to twitter, by allowing you to access almost all twitter objects as python objects. python-twitter is still in devleopment, and hence still does not have the OAuth compatibility. I am being a oauth pro, deicided to write a derived class from python-twitter, to allow OAuth to be used as the authentication mechnism for python-twitter.
python-twitter is being developed by our beloved google’s employee: DeWitt Clinton
You can get the python-twitter at: python-twitter
You can get the oauth extension to python-twitter at: oauth-python-twitter
In the next following posts I will posting about how I am using it with Django specifically and how I have writter my TwitterAuthBackend for Django. The whole purpose of publishing the code is to get improvements and reviews on the code, so I have allowed non-members to review the above project on code.google.com, you are more then welcome to post your coments here or review the code on the project. Let me know if you don’t understand anything by asking questions in comments.
P.S I have used the same license as was used for python-twitter.
Happy twittering and developing 🙂
