App::Twirc::Plugin::SecondaryAccount - Cross post updates (DEPRECATED)
# in config (.yml in this example) plugins: - SecondaryAccount username: my_other_screen_name password: my_other_twitter_password option: fb - SecondaryAccount username: yet_another_screen_name password: yet_another_password net_twitter_options: apiurl: http://identi.ca/api # In your IRC client... # ...post to your primary account *and* yet_another_screen_name post Hello, world! # ...post to your primary account and both secondary accounts post -fb Hello, universe! # ... post to my_other_screen name, only post -fbonly Hello, alternate reality.
This plugin allows cross-posting messages to multiple accounts. In configuration, you can provide an
option value. When used as an option to
post, your message will be cross-posted to your primary account and the secondary account with that
option value. If you do not provide an
option value, all messages are cross-posted to the secondary account.
only to the
option value, your status will only be posted to the the account with that
I use a configuration similar to the one in the synopsis to cross-post my Twitter status updates to Identi.ca, and optionally to Facebook. My Twitter screen name is
semifor. I created an account with screen name
semifor_fb and registered it with Twitter's Facebook application. In the
twirc configuration file, I assigned
fb to the account.
I created another secondary account with my Identi.ca screen name. In
twirc configuration, I used the
net_twitter_options to specify Identi.ca's
Now, when I post a normal status update, it is posted to
semifor on both Twitter and Identi.ca. If I include a
-fb option to post, my status update is posted to Twitter, Identi.ca, and Facebook. If I add a
-fbonly option to
post, my status update is only posted to the Facebook account.
This module relies on username/password authentication, which Twitter dropped ages ago. The author isn't using this plugin, personally, and suspects no one else is, either. So, if you are using it, file an issue, or better---a pull request. Otherwise, it will get silently dropped in a future release.
