SWX and Twitter

November 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Code

While trying to decide whether to use the Twitter AS2 or AS3 API, I stumbled across SWX, This is an AMAZING standard for getting data into Flash from some of the more popular social media APIs. I expect it to be my new best friend. It’s based on some some existing methods for getting Data. Some open source projects have very minimal gearhead websites with download links, roadmaps, and release notes.¬† The SWX website is VERY user friendly for mid-level developers(and well-designed). They¬† host public server-side PHP, so the AS library works right out of the box.

For this project the AS2 API was the easiest to break in and get the data I wanted which lives in the method userTimeline, but I expect to use SWX on future experiments.

    Nice find. Expect I’ll be using it on some future experiments too.

    I especially like the little public Flex app they have setup to test methods, etc.
