Updating your Twitter Avatar from Acorn
I have written a pair of script for Acorn that will allow you to do this.
Warning:I have tested this on Leopard 10.5.2, with ruby 1.8.6. It works for me. YMMV.
- Download the two scripts here, and put them in ~/Library/Application Support/Acorn/Plug-Ins/
The archive contains a python script (which Acorn will load) and a helper ruby script to do the heavy lifting.
- Important! Customize the Twitter.py script with your twitter username and password.
Maybe I will update the script to have a real UI for this, or simply use the keychain. This is a quick-and-dirty hack.
- Install the mechanize ruby gem, if you don’t already have it:
% sudo gem install mechanize
- Launch Acorn. Open an image. Edit it (crop it, etc…). You should be able to send it to Twitter by selecting File->Actions->Save as Twitter Avatar (by default, Control-Command-T).
That’s it! Share and enjoy!
