Basic Auth Disabled on Twitter

Sep 4, 2010 at 5:49 PM

This last week Twitter turned off the Basic Authentication api. I think this has affected TweetCraft as it no longer is posting anything.  Are there plans to fix this?

Thanks, we're considering retiring TweetCraft because of low usage, but I still think we can get a fix for this, hopefully sooner versus later

Aww that would make me very sad.  Anything I can do to help? I'm a developer.

Sad you'd kill it for low usage.  I loved this addon!

I love this addon as well.  Allows me to broadcast my activity to social sites like Facebook as well as Twitter.  Rather than retire it, perhaps you should get it a bit more visibility...

 

...and fix the api problem as well.

Any progress on this? I'd really love to be able to broadcast my tweets again.

We're working on a fix right now.

Hey, just wondering how this is going? I see some code has been committed but I am not savy enough to compile and test it out myself :S

I'm looking to incorporate TweetCraft into my Raid Tools addon for updating the guild twitter account with boss kills, loot distribution and a stack of other stuff but at the moment i've bumped it till I can get the TweetCraft client running.

The project is really cool, it's a shame it hasnt gotten the attention the uptake it diserved but hopefully having it in my addon will encourage others to do similar :D

You have two choices.

1) wait until they compile and upload a client themselves. Which may or may not happen

2) Get someone who is familiar with the language Tweetcraft is in, Lua, and Twitter's APIs from your guild to help you.

Sorry folks, there is just way too much on my plate to fix this, plus I personally stopped playing World of Warcraft a while back. We are, however looking for a developer to help ensure that the Twitter updates work and to fix the Lua addin. If you know any addon developers that want to get paid for writing addins, send them to this - http://www.elance.com/j/world-of-warcraft-addon-net-wpf-development/22775379/
