Django + Tweepy + OAuth

April 4, 2011

There is a lot of information out there that talks about putting Django and Tweepy together to make a Twitter web app. I read a lot of it recently, and although a lot of it is helpful some of it can be quite complicated or out of date.

To make things simple, I thought I’d create an example Django project that just contains the basics needed to get up and running.

The ‘DjangoTweepy’ project, hosted on Github here contains all the code needed to get up and running with a Twitter web app using Django and Tweepy. Download it and follow the instructions to get up and running quickly, or with a bit of hacking add the ‘twitter_auth’ app to your existing projects.
