NAME

AnyEvent::Twitter - A thin wrapper for Twitter API using OAuth

SYNOPSIS

    use utf8;
    use Data::Dumper;
    use AnyEvent;
    use AnyEvent::Twitter;

    my $ua = AnyEvent::Twitter->new(
        consumer_key        => 'consumer_key',
        consumer_secret     => 'consumer_secret',
        access_token        => 'access_token',
        access_token_secret => 'access_token_secret',
    );

    # or

    my $ua = AnyEvent::Twitter->new(
        consumer_key    => 'consumer_key',
        consumer_secret => 'consumer_secret',
        token           => 'access_token',
        token_secret    => 'access_token_secret',
    );

    # or, if you use eg/gen_token.pl, you can write simply as:

    use JSON;
    use Perl6::Slurp;
    my $json_text = slurp 'config.json';
    my $config    = decode_json($json_text);
    my $ua = AnyEvent::Twitter->new(%$config);

        my ($hdr, $res, $reason) = @_;

        say $res->{screen_name};
        $cv->end;
    });

    # GET request with parameters
    $cv->begin;
    $ua->get('account/verify_credentials', {include_entities => 1}, sub {
        my ($hdr, $res, $reason) = @_;

        say $res->{screen_name};
        $cv->end;
    });

    # POST request with parameters

        $cv->end;
    });

    # verbose and old style
    $cv->begin;
    $ua->request(
        method => 'GET',
        api    => 'account/verify_credentials',
        sub {
            my ($hdr, $res, $reason) = @_;

            unless ($res) {
                print $reason, "\n";

                print "ratelimit-remaining : ", $hdr->{'x-ratelimit-remaining'}, "\n",
                      "x-ratelimit-reset   : ", $hdr->{'x-ratelimit-reset'}, "\n",
                      "screen_name         : ", $res->{screen_name}, "\n";
            }
            $cv->end;

DESCRIPTION

AnyEvent::Twitter is a very thin wrapper for Twitter API using OAuth.

METHODS

new

All arguments are required. If you don't know how to obtain these parameters, take a look at eg/gen_token.pl and run it.

consumer_key
consumer_secret
access_token (or token)
access_token_secret (or token_secret)

get

$ua->get($api, sub {})
$ua->get($api, \%params, sub {})
$ua->get($url, sub {})
$ua->get($url, \%params, sub {})

post

$ua->post($api, \%params, sub {})
$ua->post($url, \%params, sub {})

request

These parameters are required.

api or url

The api parameter is a shortcut option.

If you want to specify the API url, the url parameter is good for you. The format should be 'json'.

The api parameter will be internally processed as:

    $url = 'http://api.twitter.com/1/' . $opt{api} . '.json';

You can check the api option at Twitter API Wiki

method and params

Investigate the HTTP method and required parameters of Twitter API that you want to use. Then specify it. GET/POST methods are allowed. You can omit params if Twitter API doesn't requires option.

callback

This module is AnyEvent::HTTP style, so you have to pass the coderef callback.

Passed callback will be called with $hdr, $response and $reason. If something is wrong with the response from Twitter API, $response will be undef. So you can check the value like below.

    sub {
        my ($hdr, $res, $reason) = @_;

        unless ($res) {
            print $reason, "\n";
        } else {
            print $res->{screen_name}, "\n";
        }
    }
