The TwitterFax is a small project done together with Konst & Teknik. It will watch a given Twitter username for mentions and then print it, together with any twitpics or yimg images attached to it.
The code is pretty simple and uses the Twitter gem for communicating with Twitter and Prawn to genereate the PDF’s. I’ve set it up to run every 15 minute using a Cron job.
Check out the full source code. You’ll need to change what typeface to use or get
LucidFaxEFRom.ttf from somewhere else.
So go ahead and mention @konst_teknik to try it out!
