A couple of days ago, I wrote a script that would tweet anything you plurked. Thanks to some code from Neville Newey (based on PHP code by Charl van Niekerk), the plurk.py script I wrote has been updated to both plurk your tweets and tweet your plurks. This should work on both windows and linux machines. If you have access to a linux machine, I suggest setting up a cron job to take care of this. As I mentioned in the previous post, if you set up a cron job, be sure to change the path to plurkdb.dat to an absolute path. I have done the most testing on this with python 2.4 in linux.
This code is open source under the Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution license that this blog uses Creative Commons BSD license. Neville’s code appears to be under CC:Attribution 2.5 for South Africa, by what I could glean from his site. I have considered making this an open source project under Google code but have yet to take it all the way. Google sets a lifetime limit of 10 projects, so I will continue to hoard those against future need. If you make modifications to the code, please let me know and I will probably post them here and in the code for future releases, so we all win.
Note that the command line parameters have changed:
plurk.py <twitter username> <twitter password> <plurk username> <plurk password>
And of course, as with all software, use at your own risk.
