Tweeper 1.0.0 released, with PHP composer support

Tweeper is a web scraper which converts Twitter and other social media websites to RSS.

On December 11th 2016 version 1.0.0 of Tweeper has been released. The tweeper Debian package has also been updated.

For PHP composer users there is also ao2/tweeper on packagist, which means that tweeper can be installed and run with these commands:

$ composer global require ao2/tweeper
$ ~/.config/composer/vendor/bin/tweeper

From this release tweeper can also be used as a library in other projects, for an example of how to do that check out tweeper_composer_test.git.

Another notable change is a fix for an information leakage which could allow an attacker to figure out what files were available on a system where tweeper was used via a web server, the bug was caused by the lack of validation of the URL scheme.

Here are the NEWS file entries:

  * Fix information leakage by validating the URL scheme
