Facebook and Twitter integration

Hey guys,

 

I was wondering if anybody has had any luck integrating Facebook and Twitter into their native applications? Is there an existing API for this or did you roll your own?

 

I don't have a specific feature set that I require yet, but I'm going to eventually need to acomplish integration of these services. At a minimum I need to make a twitter account auto follow a company. Not too sure about facebook, or any other twitter functionality though. Hopefully there will be a silver bullet to take care of everything I require down the road.

I have no idea about FB integration, but for twitter you can use twitcurl. easy to compile and use :smileyhappy:

Re: Facebook and Twitter integration

I'm working on a FB integration. I have the basic connect working. Now need to implement the rest of the API calls and package it into a library (with Cascades UI).

 

FWIW for anyone else working on something similiar or using a WebView. While working on getting the auth through a WebView working, I noticed that the keyboard isn't automatically triggered when a text field on a website is selected. If you show the keyboard through a manual action though (as in a button click), it works fine though.

That's really cool guys. I'll look into twit curl.

@filiussoft: Is your work open source?

@xoorath: yes, I plan on putting it up on GitHub. I'll post back here once an initial version is up.
