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#
@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 :)
