CharBotGreen for Identica

CharBotGreen is stilll suspended on Twitter but fortunately she’s still announcing away on

It’s trivial to move a bot from one to the other. In the source for CharBotGreen there’s a line

u = ""

Using the Twitter-compatible Identica API you I can just replace that line with:

u = ""

The only thing to watch for is that Identica stores names as lowercase and the authorisation fails if you don’t send it in lowercase.

Doesn’t work in

req.basic_auth 'CharBotGreen', 'sekret'

works in

req.basic_auth 'charbotgreen', 'sekret'

Thats it though – easy!
