POCO and Twitter

Filed under: Uncategorized by guenter at 21:39

In the upcoming 1.3.4 release there will be a new sample application for the Net library that implements a simple Twitter client that can be used to send status updates to Twitter.

Apart from being fun to implement and providing useful Twitter client functionality, this sample also shows how to combine Poco::Net::HTTPClientSession, Poco::Net::HTMLForm, Poco::Net::HTTPBasicCredentials and the XML library to build a REST client with POCO.

You can find the source code in the Subversion trunk.

In related news, we now have a Twitter account for the POCO project. Follow us for news and announcements.

  1. Hi,

    Thank you for sharing. May I know when Poco 1.3.4 will be released? I think that you Twitter client should make notes like “Send 2 hours ago from POCOTweet” like any other Twitter clientss.

  2. If everything goes well, I will release 1.3.4 next week.
    As for the Twitter thing, this would require cooperation of the Twitter guys – we’d have to register the POCO Twitter client with them (see the FAQ).
