Announcing TwitNotes – a Twitter plug-in for Notes 8

The below screenshot should speak for itself but in case it doesn’t let me explain… Last night and tonight I have been writing a Twitter plug-in for the Notes 8 Standard sidebar. I got tired of using BeTwittered and really wanted a real Notes 8 sidebar plug-in as I have some other ideas I want to incorporate. Once I finalize the plug-in tomorrow and get it on an update site you can install it if you’re interested.

Initial features:

  • Pure SWT application
  • Integration with the Accounts API
  • Preferences via Notes 8 Preference pages (auto refresh (yes/no), refresh interval, number of posts to show, refresh after posting).
  • Shows the Twitter profile image of the poster.
  • Posts to Twitter.

  1. Hey, Mikkel. That looks excellent.  I too have given up on BeTwittered and gone back to using Snitter or Twhirl, so I’ll be interested to see how well your plug-in works.


  2. Until now I think I have spent 12-15 hours. Besides needing a Twitter client for Notes 8 I’m going to use it to show of ways of doing stuff in sidebar plug-ins/composite applications so I’m going to spend more time than absolutely necessary.


  3. Ahh now I understand the question… 🙂 Nope – not yet but it’s Expeditor ready so I don’t see why it shouldn’t run there as well. The extension points are all the same. There could be something with the Account API but I don’t think so.


  4. very cool. I have bene in contact with betwittered and he has been updating pieces of code for me and the 801 client.

    But this sounds better let us knwo where to get it or email me.

  5. Will you be including the options to change the ‘twitter api’ url?  For those of use who want to have ‘internal’ twitter clones running twitter standards like ?

    Thanks would be interested in that.
