Hi Malte,

I have just downloaded the latest DM 4 snapshot and installed your twitter research plugin version 1.1 from nightly builds. To me it seems that nothing happens when I enter a search. But I don't really know how to use the form and also i could not find any explanation or examples on this. Could you help me please? Thx JuergeN

Hi JuergenN!

Please note: The Twitter-Research Plugin 1.1 (also it's current nighly-builds) are developed to just work with the latest stable version, DeepaMehta 4.1, since the nightly builds of DeepaMehta are undergoing development changes nearly every day. When I release plugins I try to make sure to support (at least) the latest available stable binary release of DM, since for them there shall be migration of end user-data.

The most simple usage, after a successfully installation of the Twitter-Research plugin consists of the following steps:

  1. "Create" -> "Twitter Search" (probably you want to switch to the new "Twitter Research"-workspace before)
  2. Enter "Search Query" into the designated user-input field
  3. Press "Search" (or a button labelled like that)
  4. An "Asking https://search.twitter.com" should appear in DeepaMehta's Page Panel, until the result is returned, (which might take some seconds).

I hope this helps, and tell me where you're stucked, I try to help where I can, and thanks for your report.

I have just copied the plugin to my stable instance of DM 4.1. Same result here. Nothing happens. So I have copied the search string from the log file into my browser:



{"errors": [{"message": "The Twitter REST API v1 is no longer active. Please migrate to API v1.1. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/overview.", "code": 68}]}

Maybe that helps?

Thanks JuergenN for your investigation, this surely helps.

So, as it looks now, the underlying service was moved out of the way by Twitter Inc. faster than I thought it would be.

I will have to adapt the twitter-research plugin to the new version of the Twitter Search-API and luckily, after a first look into the docs there, it' shouldn't be a big switch, but it still is some work.

I will keep you update here when' my work is available in the nightly-build, tested and working with 4.1, resp. 4.1.1-SNAPSHOT (i will let you know then) and sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Malte, I am just curious: Are there any updates on this ticket?

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by Malte

Hey JuergenN, sorry, no update available yet. I'll see how lucky I feel tonight but otherwise I am able for some freestyle-work again after next week. Thanks for asking.

For this applicaton is a major update available by now at https://github.com/mukil/twitter-research which is compatible with DeepaMehta 4.1.2.

Please check the README in the github-repo for all new usage hints and if you need, I can send you some Twitter Application API Credentials (that's the new style there, to authenticate any API Request via OAuth2).

Please report the glitches.

For example: A rendering glitch comes along with the new dm4-caching module. To view updates on a "Twitter Search" topic in DeepaMehtas? "Detail Panel" (e.g. after issueing a "Load More" or "Refresh" command) you have to "SHIFT + RELOAD" the page/selected topic, otherwise the aggregated "Tweets" and the "Search Result Size" one seess rendered in the "Detail Panel" is not the actual one/ is outdated but not served due to the powerful features of DM's caching module.

I'll try to fix this for the final release.

Twitter Research Plugin 1.2-SNAPSHOT Release

Since Jenkins doesnt like my plugin configraition, resp. cannot build a plugin via deepamehta-plugin-parent which is referencing DM 4.1.2, here it is, the first SNAPSHOT buid. I would be happy if you could give it a test-drive soon.

Hi Malte, I have installed your plugin and did some first tests. So far it seems to do what it should do. Btw here is a useful link for newbies like me: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/631 on how to generate the requested key and secret for the app.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Nice JuergenN.

Though I still have an issue that for some "Twitter Searches" the designated multi_renderer for (aggregated) "Tweets" is not showing up at all, I will bundle the 1.2 release soon and consider this as stable.

I will investigate this strange multi_renderer issue with jri at another day and time and close this ticket now.

Thank you very much for giving it a try and your helping hand here.

Hey juergen, I incorporated the discussion link you provided into the projects README-file.

Thank you for your help. Tomorrow the final release will be build and I will then announce it on the developers and/or users-list.
