Application: Pwytter
Category: Internet
Description: Pwytter is an Open Source Twitter application that allows you to send and receive tweets (messages on Twitter) to and from your friends. It is in development currently, so features are being added and perfected.

Help needed
When you download the app, it's going to become apparent that the icon needs some work. It's really small and basic, and needs to be replaced. If anyone would be so gracious to create a new icon, that would be great. Thanks.

    Interesting looking.

    I'll check it out.
    Please don't reply so I can edit with the results.

    Insert original signature here with Greasemonkey Script.

    Errorez. : - )

    First run, I received an error when attempting to launch:

    ---------------------------
    Errors occurred
    ---------------------------
    See the logfile 'D:\PortableApps\PwytterPortable\App\pwytter\pwytter.exe.log' for details
    ---------------------------
    OK   
    ---------------------------
    

    And here is the logfile contents:|

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "pwytter.py", line 964, in ?
      File "Tkinter.pyc", line 1448, in wm_iconbitmap
    _tkinter.TclError: bitmap "media\pwytter.ico" not defined
    

    Give me a moment. I'll check something. Yup, that's it, just add a SetOutPath "$EXEDIR\App\pwytter" before each ExecWait. Did you try it before releasing. ;P

    And now for the rest of the usuals. I'll go create a Twitter account after this. Smiling

    • help.html -> General Pwytter Issues is bulletless. Shocked
    • help.html -> 'Go to the MediaCoder Portable Homepage >>'
    • FTR, all apps are going full out case for all directories now App\'Appname', John mentioned it in the Specs thread too.
    • We need to think of a standard to & Contributors, and contributors, and Contributors, etc. The menu about uses & Contributors, but the installer uses and contributors. I like & Contributors. Smiling
    • Other\Source\Readme.txt is for MediaCoder.
    • You have a lot of unneeded includes. I think all of them, actually.
    • appinfo.ini -> I do not believe Multimedia is a category. Smiling
    • We'll need to add in the language switching by Environment Variable, I can help! Smiling

    That's it! Nicely done, and nice app choice. I hope it doesn't get be hooked on Twitter. Smiling

    Okay.

    I tried it out, yes. Sticking out tongue It worked just fine for me. I'll take a look at it, but I had no problems.

    I thought I did a pretty good job of cleaning everything up, but I'll fix all that. Thanks for cleaning up my act.

    BTW, do you have a cold or something? "I hope it doesn't get be hooked on Twitter." Sticking out tongue In case you try Twitter out, follow me. Smiling

    Lmao

    That's funny, because I actually do have a cold. Sticking out tongue

    just installed it...

    I just got the same 'See logfile...'

    Log reads:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "pwytter.py", line 964, in ?
    File "Tkinter.pyc", line 1448, in wm_iconbitmap

    Yes

    I've fixed that, and hopefully I'll be able to upload development test 2 later today.

    Hurry!

    I wanna test this and see if it's any better than Snitter. Sticking out tongue

    DT2

    Development test 2 has been released. This release should fix all bugs, and it adds some features in the launcher not previously available. Thanks for any feedback.

    Pwytter - nice program

    I like this client. I use Twhirl usually which at times can have too many features. Keep it simple and focused on Twitter. Nice if it could be minimized to the tool tray.

    Been using this test release

    for 5 minutes or so now, and I love it! Sure it could use a little polishing up, but lightweight and effective.

    Trying Pwytter 0.8

    It's working for me (only at home). Firewall at work seems to block the refreshing so some proxy setting options would be helpful since this is meant to be portable. I wish it would minimize to the system tray and could monitor multiple twitter accounts but overall it works nicely. thx!

    Broken link?

    The link provided does not get me to the download.

    everything on that server was

    everything on that server was temporarily messed up. the owner is working to fix the issue

    The developer formerly known as ZGitRDun8705

    It works!

    I was just able to download the install file. Thanks!

    Proxy?

    A good deal of the time ppl run portable apps because they are in IT lockdown. In order to do this, we need to be able to add a proxy for Pwytter to go through. Will this be available in the future?

    Pwytter developers

    I can't really do anything about that. I didn't develop Pwytter, I just made the app portable. I can't say whether that feature will be added in the future though.

    And if you're interested in other Twitter apps, I'm looking for alternatives to Pwytter, because it seems to be out of development now.

    Sweet - like a dream - thanks a lot man ;0)

    Hey Kevin - I'm over the moon, it worked like a dream ;0) Your A rising Star & Genius. I've followed you on twitter! same name as above take care. peace.

    Will

    Thank you. :-)

    Thanks very much, I'm flattered. Eye-wink

    Personalization

    Just installed 0.8 Test 2 on my micro Cruzer drive.

    I can not manage to get the portable app to start with my personal Twitter username/password. The contents of the pwytter.xml are not being picked up. I am assuming there must be some sort of path error in the INI or somewhere but I have not been smart enough to chase it down.

    Twitter API

    Twitter changed their API around a few days ago, and if I'm correct Pwytter will no longer work. The Pwytter website looks rather dead, so I'm going to have to abandon this project until anyone can find a good open source Twitter client. The actual Twitter site will have to suffice for now, unfortunately.

    Mitter

    Julio is actively working on rewriting Mitter with some awesome multi-network support. When it's released, it's all yours.

    Excellent

    I'll keep an eye out for the release.

    works fine for me so far...

    just loaded it for the first time just a few minutes ago, and it worked fine for me, i use vista, on this specific computer which is not my own, its home premium, and loaded fine, no errors, and love it so far...very nice theme, the black one... i will definately be using this quite often when im at school...ROFL...heres hoping its not blocked, so in case it is, if you can and might consider it, could you possible configure it to run using a proxy maybe... just a thought... and if you could also make it so that you can view twitter somehow within it, like maybe using a tab... i dont know, but i think that might be nice...your choice...

    overall i love the app so far...GREAT WORK..
    5/5

    please and thank you...

    Glad you like it, but I

    Glad you like it, but I didn't write the app, I just made it portable. Smiling

    As I said earlier, the actual Pwytter project (not the portable project) seems to be dead, so I'm looking around for alternatives that will hopefully be a bit better and more appealing than Pwytter.

    Logo

    Look promising

    It really look promising... Still now works fine... I hope that in future it will have functionality like TweetDeck or Seesmic
    Now I'm using TweetDeck for normal use and Pwytter for testing... So will update if will have any issues.

    EDIT: Does anybody is still working on this app?
