The Tweepository plugin enables the repository to harvest a stream of tweets from a twitter search.
The following perl libraries must be installed on the server before the Bazaar package will function.
Date::Calc Date::Parse Encode HTML::Entities JSON LWP::UserAgent URI URI::Find
Install through the EPrints Bazaar
To create a new tweetstream, click on 'Manage Records', then on 'Twitter Feed', and then on the 'Create new Item' button. A new tweetstream object will be created, and you will need to enter two parameters:
- Search String: Passed directly to Twitter as the search parameter.
- Expiry Date: The date on which to stop harvesting this stream.
Once these fields have been completed, click 'Save and Return'.
