More checkmarks are green today!
I will continue with something homegrown for users and individual tweets, but I'm thinking if I should add a dependency on nitter to fetch timelines 🤔
The lead dev has timelines working again already: https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/issues/983#issuecomment-1684070343
While having everything built-in is neat, strategies to crawl are getting more complicated and it's starting to take a lot of time to re-implement things in C#
So they are all green right now, and the fetching tweets part works from my computer and CI, but not from any of the servers... The approach of fetching tweets from the embeds doesn't seem to work....
FML, and back to the drawing board!
And we are back*, baby!
* with the limitation on popular tweets for now
And no retweets, but I did notice I can get pinned tweets though
@vincent Agreed, I'd love to at least have a link to Nitter from the page, if not just have the web link for the post go directly to nitter
@vincent if you’re going to introduce a dependency, might as well leverage it for as much as you can? Let nitter do as much of the heavy lifting as possible.
I haven’t looked at nitter before, but looks like you can self-host it on your new k8s cluster. At that point you can claim bird uses a microservice architecture :)
@vincent Have you reached out to @sportsbots.xyz seems to still be functioning fine? Also, I’ve gotten a small handful of bird.makeup tweets in the last couple days randomly, so seems like you’ve had it working at least a couple times.. thanks for your work on this, it is so much appreciated!
@vincent Thanks for working on this!
@vincent your hard work is appreciated o7
@vincent Thank you for trying to keep it up!!!
@vincent You are truly a hero, sir!! Congrats!!
@vincent I’m still getting the development mode error.
@vincent You dropped this 👑
@vincent I still have yet to see a single one since then. Do we need to unfollow and refollow them? Or is it just going to take some time to catch up?
4 posts from a person followed by 15 people via bird.makeup recently appeared in my feed. All 4 posts were 8-10 days old, and the person has definitely tweeted more recently than that.
I also follow other, presumably more popular people via bird.makeup, and no posts from them have appeared in my feed.
