Started playing with this today, Contractual brings the concept of Interfaces and Abstract classes to Ruby. I’d started trying to implement this based on an article by Mark Bates , before spotting this gem (ignore the pun) in the comments.
Along with updating to use the latest version of the Twitter Ruby Gem, which now requires authentication, I’ve merged the “Twitter Favourites to The Hit List” and “Twitter Favourites to Reminders” into a single script. This model is more manageable in the future and allows additional applications to be added as configuration options.
Twitter Favourites to List now requires some extra configuration options, one of which determines which application the TODO item will be created in. This script, and the required documentation is now on GitHub here : Twitter Favourites to List. The two previous versions of this script have been removed.
A while ago I made a modified version of the Twitter Favourites to The Hit List script to import in to the Reminders application that ships with Mountain Lion. I have completely moved away from The Hit List due to the lack of updates / support the application is getting. Currently I am using a combination of Due and Reminders for my workflow.
I decided shortly after writing the post “Why it is impossible to get a 5 star review to go ahead and take the gamble and purchase the product. The product had mostly good reviews, except for the silly one detailed in the previous post, and for £2.28 I wouldn’t really feel out of pocket if they did turn out to be rubbish.
On a related note to today’s xkcd comic it is not possible to have multiple reviews, and still have a 5 star rating.
This comment on Amazon says it all:
The product it was for was this set of stylii. At less than £3 for them with free delivery they surely must be worth a gamble!
