    Hey! Pwytter looks real nice ;)

    Just a quick note, in your screen shot I noticed that you misspelt ‘characters’ down the bottom. I haven’t grabbed Pwytter yet so I don’t know if it’s fixed or not.

    Peppery > thanks ! I’ll correct it for the 0.7 release.

    Great program, but a black background is really hard to read. Any chance of a do-over in the next update. Or perhaps a skin or two?

  4. Phillip Says:

    What if we don’t want the source? I just want the executable! Thanks! :-D

  5. Sean McGee Says:

    Just wondering: Should I have a notice saying “A new Pwytter release is available” when I apparently have the latest version?

    Michael > Pwytter 0.7 will have a themable GUI.

    Phillip > ACtually there is an executable for Windows only. The Mac .app will follow soon.

    Sean> Strange… Are you sure you have the 0.6 running ?

    I’ve tried, and got problem with Thai language.
    I guess that it’s about unicode.

    Good App but can’t use.

    Hi, Pierre,

    How difficult would it be to transform this into a command-line version? The posting would seem to be the easier piece of that; it’s the display of the tweets that might become a little troublesome. I wonder if there’s a way to link irssi to Twitter?


    Thanks for your effort here.

    No idea what or where these are, but none of them are visible anywhere in synaptic on a Feisty ubuntu system. (all software sources, “main”, “universe”, “restricted” and “multiverse” are enabled)

    Adrian > the apt package names are : python-2.4-imaging, python-2.4-imaging-tk, python-2.4-tk

    Apparently this is not yet ready for prime time on Vista because it will not run at all. I get a black screen and nothing else. Eventually the title bar changes to say it is not responding. Nice try though.

    You misspelled ‘caracters’ (sic) in the main dialog of the app (0.6, downloaded from the main site 8/19/07. Nice app though!

    I have the python packages installed in kubuntu but I still can’t figure out how to run it. Could you let me know what I need to do?
