Tweet is a simple desktop client for the Twitter messaging
service. Tweet is written in C using GNOME platform libraries like:
and other GNOME-related libraries like:
Tweet uses Clutter as an hardware accelerated canvas for parts of its
user interface; this requires a working OpenGL implementation.
Note: currently needs clutter-gtk-devel=0.6.1 from Rawhide, so you'd need to pull it from the Rawhide repo. There's a repaint bug on Intel hardware if compositing is enabled (Metacity w/compositing, Compiz or kwin with desktop effects), according to upstream it's an Intel driver issue.
Package is split into tweet, twitter-glib and twitter-glib-devel, the latter two are designed to be usable from other programs.
This shouldn't go into Fedora yet, since upstream is reluctant to see it in
distos while it's still in alpha release.
From upstream: '@luca: thanks for the package; I’m not entirely confident in
having Tweet in the NEW queue - not until it hits a beta stage, after GUADEC
when it’ll depend on Clutter 0.8 and friends.'
Easy enough to remove it from the queue; just clear the whiteboard when it's ready.
It looks like Emmanuele stopped developing Tweet, but he did remove twitter-glib from the project and he just did a release (0.9.2) of that 2 days ago that would probably be worthwhile to add to Fedora if your interested.
any progress on this package?
SPEC/SRPM is not available on provided links.
I think that this could be considered as stalled review and closed if there is no progress or plans for working on tweet package.
This has been NotReady for more than half a year now, and there's been no response to commentary in 3.5 months. I'm closing this out.
