Mitter 0.3.0 “On the other side of the screen, it looks so easy” released

Mitter is a simple application to keep your Twitter status up-to-date and to see your friends updates. It aims to be simple and with a small requirement list, while supporting multiple different interfaces.

This release supports a new version of the TTY interface. Besides the normal “call and run” command line, there is a --command option, which will start Mitter TTY interface in a command line interface (something like a shell.)

Also, we fixed some small bugs, so this should be more stable than the 0.2 releases.

Notice that, in this version, we removed the Simple-JSON parser that was packed inside Mitter. Now you need to install python simple-json package to run Mitter.

As usual, downloads are available at the project page.

Mitter gets a facelift

I did a small update in Mitter interface. Now you don’t have the update status window anymore, as it appears in the main window. There are some bits I don’t like about it: the code is using very specific sizes for the window and the entry field and I’m not a fan of hardcoded values. Right now, I’m changing the save preferences function to allow every interface to add their own bits. The motivation for it is the only thing that is holding a formal release: automatic refresh. So the interface can save the time interval and, since things are in place already, I can save window positions too (and everyone is happy.)

After that, I guess I can start hacking the Hildon interface (which was the reason I started Mitter.)
