I noticed recently that the Octopress Twitter plugin for my sidebar was broken. The reason is that Twitter no longer supports the APIs that the plugin accesses. Instead now they have a widget page to generate html code that will embed a list of your tweets on your page.
I created a widget for myself and customised it by adding the
nofooter transparent noheader attributes to
These remove various headings and background colouring so that it blends in with the site a bit more.
To add this to an Octopress site, you replace the code in
source/_includes/asides/twitter.html with this new code.
I also added a follow button which displays a Twitter formatted follow button and a count of your subscribers.
The full code is as follows
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
