I just released Joggle version 0.1.0. Joggle is a Jabber to
Twitter relay; tweets show up as instant messages, and instant
messages are posted as tweets.
Setting up Joggle is easy; all you need is Ruby, five minutes, and a
spare Jabber account:
# install joggle, create joggle directory
sudo gem install joggle
# create joggle config file
# (replace firstname.lastname@example.org and abc123 with your spare jabber
# account and password, respectively)
echo -e "jabber.user email@example.com\njabber.pass abc123" > ~/.joggle/joggle.cfg
# run joggle in the background
joggle --daemon --config ~/.joggle/joggle.cfg
Next, add the specified Jabber account (
firstname.lastname@example.org, in the
example above) to the buddy list in your Jabber client.
Finally, register your twitter username and password with Joggle by
sending an instant message like this:
.register TWITTER_USER TWITTER_PASS
TWITTER_PASS with your Twitter username
You can also share your Joggle installation with your friends; have them
add the Jabber account to their buddy list and send a
See the README file for detailed installation instructions and a
full list of configuration options.
