Twitter API 1.1 for static sites

  • # June 12, 2013 at 9:10 am

    So Twitter retired API 1 yesterday…meaning every site I’ve incorporated a feed in has stopped working. It would appear that 1.1 can no longer be implemented to a static webpage? php sites have been updated successfully however I can’t find any solution for a basic static html site.

    Any ideas?

    I don’t know much (well, anything) about the Twitter API, but if it’s just a feed of **the site’s** tweets then the Twitter widget would seem appropriate.

    Thanks. The existing sites are main problem as they will all need to be updated with something asap. I don’t really want to go from a custom styled feed to a widget even if it can be customised to a degree… I haven’t seen those timelines before though.

    From memory, you get **limited** options in styling the Widget / Timeline when creating them (limited to height, link color, light or dark theme etc) **BUT** once it’s embedded you can hack at it with CSS override styling.

    It’s been a while though.

    I hear that with the new version of the API requires server-side oauth for just about everything which makes it much more complicated.

    Got my dev to re-write the old code we used to pull tweets through. It does require server-side auth but works a treat. I’ll drop the files over to any who is interested.
