Keep up with Twitter with Rainbow Stream
I like social networking and microblogging. It’s fast, it is easy, and I can share my ideas with the world actually rapidly. The disadvantage is, in fact, that the majority the desktop choices for non-Windows customers are wrappers across the web site. Twitter has a variety of purchasers, however what I actually need is one thing light-weight, straightforward to make use of, and most significantly, enticing.
Rainbow Stream is without doubt one of the prettier Twitter purchasers. It is simple to make use of and installs rapidly with a easy pip3 set up rainbowstream. On the primary run, it’s going to open a browser window and have you ever authorize with Twitter. Once that’s carried out, you land at a immediate, and your Twitter timeline will begin scrolling by.
The most essential instructions to know are p to pause the stream, r to renew the stream, h to get assist, and t to publish a brand new tweet. For instance, h tweets provides you with all of the choices for sending and replying to tweets. Another helpful assist display screen is h messages, which provides the instructions for working with direct messages, which is one thing my spouse and I exploit loads. There are a variety of different instructions, and I refer again to assist loads.
As your timeline scrolls by, you’ll be able to see that it has full UTF-Eight help and, with the correct font, will present indicators for what number of occasions one thing was retweeted and appreciated, in addition to icons and emojis.
One of the greatest issues about Rainbow Stream is that you do not have to surrender on photographs and pictures. This characteristic is off by default, however you’ll be able to attempt it out with the config command.
config IMAGE_ON_TERM = true
This command renders any photos as ASCII artwork. If you will have a photo-heavy stream, this can be a bit a lot, however I prefer it. It has a really retro-1990s BBS really feel, and I did love the BBS scene within the 1990s.
You can even use Rainbow Stream to handle lists, mute folks, block folks, comply with, unfollow, and every little thing else that’s out there with the Twitter API. There can be theme help, so you’ll be able to customise the stream to your favourite colour scheme.
When I am working and do not need to have yet-another-tab open on my browser, Rainbow Stream lets me sustain in a terminal off to the aspect.
