I did it again.
I added more stuff to iDenTickle, again.


This time, I added the option of updating your gNewBook microblog.

I also added a handy little "clear" button.

Also, the setup and about "windows" are now just frames that appear in the main interface, rather than distinct windows.

Well...I just couldn't leave well enough alone.
Yesterday I released version 1.0 of IdenTickle, my tcl/tk denter/tweeter tool...but I just kept thinking, it could be better.
The interface could be cleaner, with the setup stuff separate.
And, perhaps an about button, as is common, to bring up a little dialog with a bit of info, and direct the user to the homepage.
Plus buttons to open your browser to your identi.ca or twitter feed...stuff like that.

So, today you have IdenTickle version 1.1.


The main interface.


and, when you open the setup tab/frame to enter your setup information.
As you'll recall, v 1.0 was already saving your login data (previous version required entry of said data, every time...annoying).

enjoy

Happily, I have fixed tweeting and denting with Xpostulate so that it is now down with Tcl's own HTTP library.
What this means is, it does not call the external tool, cURL, so that Windows users will not need to install cURL for Windows to use the dent/tweet feature.

Xpostulate is now 100% Tcl, with no need to call external resources.

Tweeting and Denting are now incorporated within the eXpostulate interface, so you can really annoy all your online friends, by x-xposting to 4 distinct blogging services, & denting and tweeting to announce your new articles!

At this moment, the denting/tweeting is still using curl, however, which is only native to * nix systems (should work on lin/bsd/mac without further configuration, but win users will have to install curl, which can be done, of course).

I will be attempting to work out tweeting/denting with tcl's own http post method. I've tried a few times, but unsuccessfully, so far. Need to log on to #tcl at freenode and get some help, or something.

iDenTweetyPie

I hacked up a little more python/tkinter silliness.

iDenTweetyPie sends a dent/tweet(update) to twitter or identi.ca.

That's all, really.

I have no plans to make a full-blown client for either site, just a quick-n-dirty updating tool. I would like, however, to figure out the pubsubhub thingy to send buzzes to google/buzz.

That would take some additionaly work, since, at the moment, iDenTweetyPie tells you that you talk too much and refuses to proceed if your update is longer than 160 characters, which, of course, isn't necessary for buzz, since buzz tolerates longer updates.

I might work on that. I don't know. This was just a little exercise, really.

I had already written a similar little program in tcl/tk, iDenTickle, which initially only did dents, but I have updated that one to send tweets, too.

my dents : my tweets
