Go, Twitter, json, twitterfetcher, anaconda, twittergo

Looking to choose a twitter api

  gockel – a Twitter client for text terminals –

  twitterfetcher – A tool to make Twitter API requests using the Application-only authentication –

  Digestw – A Web Application – Twitter’s Timeline Digest –

  webtf – Web app to graphical visualization of twitter timelines using the HTML5 – – Interesting

  anaconda – Client library for the Twitter 1.1 API –

  twittergo – Client library for Twitter’s API –

Tweet – #golang twitter api recommendations / experiences? twitterfetcher, anaconda, twittergo? Thinking twittergo – more examples. Thoughts?

@rndmio -> @sharpic I’ve used anaconda a couple of times, I prefer functions to crafting URLs and having to parse the results (twittergo).

So on this advice I think I’ll use anaconda.

Probably need to use json for data saving and exchanging – spec at and go package at: import “encoding/json” more at – go encoding in general looks interesting
