Tweeper 0.6 released, Twitter to RSS, with images
Tweeper is a web scraper which converts Twitter and other sites to RSS.
A snippet from the NEWS file:
News for v0.6: ============== * Fix support for Facebook.com public pages * Fix support for Dilbert.com * Major code cleanup (coding style, functions naming) * Fix indentation when generating the element * Support generating enclosure for "image/png" links * Major improvements for Twitter.com: - embed images directly in the item description, linking to the original versions uploaded by the user; - use direct links instead of ones pointing to the t.co redirector; - show explicitly if the attached media is a video; - add enclosure element support for attached images. * Minor improvements for Instagram.com: - fix the channel link; - make images adapt to the feed reader view, this avoids horizontal scrolling if the image is too big. * Support generating enclosure for images on Dilbert.com * Support generating enclosure for images on Pump.io sites * Misc fixes to code and documentation
The most prominent change is that images attached to tweets can now be seen directly in the feed reader with no need to visit the Twitter web page, the images will also link to the full-size files originally uploaded by the user.
