i’ve been using and following all of the buzz around twitter recently, and all of the desktop clients cropping up for it are pretty cool. My only complaint, though, is that they’re another program to be running, either silently or in my menubar. I’ve already got a tool that does input and system notifications, and it’s quicksilver.
So, says me to myself, why not have a quicksilver plugin that does twitter-stuff? Shouldnt it be able to use its own notifications (like the itunes track change), and it’s handy text to anything functionality to post that info through twitter’s API?
Here’s the challenge, at least from my angle. I don’t know a lick of objective c, or anything about the xcode development environment in general. Web is a little different than desktop…but that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to learn. If any of my readership has resources on getting started with objective c, xcode, or something as specific as quicksilver plugins (though i did find a pretty bitchin’ resource on that), please contribute either in my comments or to the twitter wiki page about my “project”.
Oh yeah, and wish me luck.
