It has been a long time coming but I am pleased to say tweetable version 1.6 is now available for download. This latest release of the plugin solves many previous issues with cross browser compatibility. the plugin has also been given a face lift to show you just how good it can look.
What is tweetable?
Tweetable is a lightweight jQuery plugin which enables you to display your twitter feed on your site quickly and easily. More than just displaying the feeds you can highlight @replys as well as links being dynamically generated for ease of use.
How to use it
Tweetable version 1.6 has been developed to work with jQuery 1.4.2. Firstly call in the framework and the jquery.tweetable.js file:
Next create an element on your page that you want to call your twitter feed into. For example #tweets
Now you can initiate the plugin by calling tweetable onto your selected element.
Thats all there is to it.
You can add extra parameters to the plugin, to give extra customisation options, simply add these when you call in the plugin.
limit: 5, //number of tweets to show username: 'philipbeel', //@username tweets to display time: false, //display date replies: false, //filter out @replys
Because tweetable outputs the HTML after the DOM has loaded you might need some extra style rules. here is the structure that is output to the page
<ul> <li> <p></p> </li> </ul>
You can download and use this plugin for free, however please be sure to read the instructions above clearly before posting any questions or comments about the plugin.
