Flutter is a light-weight iGoogle Twitter client and is the first of a number of small personal development projects I intend to release in the coming weeks and months.
It is offered as an alternative to the fairly heavy-weight user experiences offered by many of the existing iGoogle-based solutions. All tweets, including replies and direct messages are re-threaded into a single feed to avoid switching between multiple tabs:
As the post title suggests, Flutter is currently in beta and, while I encourage everyone to give it a try, do expect to find a few pesky little bugs. I look forward to hearing about all such occurrences and will endeavour to fix them as soon as humanly possible.
Currently authentication is performed by passing users' credentials directly through a POST request to Twitter via the server hosting jbmorley.co.uk. I am well aware this is exceptionally in-elegant; it merely serves as an interim solution until OAuth support has been implemented so please bear with me.
Suggestions and recommendations are always gratefully received. I am personally considering providing TweetDeck-like behaviour in the Canvas view, but this will require some internal rearchitecting so it’s some ways off right now…
