MX 17 Repository: The Corebird Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Tue Nov 07, 2017 2:44 pm

The latest Linux Twitter client Corebird 1.7.1 release has now landed in the MX 17 test repository. We couldn't update it any more on the MX 16 platform, since it requires newer gtk versions.

Please give it a try if you use Twitter; perhaps we can add it to the iSO as the default client!

Agreed, it picked up my credentials with no problem and loaded the account quickly.

Do we have it in the 17.1 ISO? It seems like a good addition.

Don't think so, no. I would argue that it belongs in mxpi myself...

I want to express my appreciation to whoever is behind updating Corebird to the most recent 1.74 release (as described here - https://github.com/baedert/corebird/issues/845 )

I use corebird all the time as the best way to read Twitter, but lately it was becoming unusable due to screen refreshes that would cause you to lose your place when reading.

I checked the corebird page and found the commentary on the upgrade, and I see it is already in the MX repo upgrade --

THANK YOU to whoever did that!

Your amazing MX Packagers, that's who!

I use Corebird too, and it works very well.

Jerry are you getting the refresh problems described in this post: https://github.com/baedert/corebird/issues/845

lucaswerkmeister commented 7 days ago
Seconded. I often get this error while I’m still catching up with old tweets (presumably, Corebird keeps polling for new tweets even when I’m currently scrolling through sections of my timeline several hours old), so any change that would just let me keep reading the already loaded timeline (make the error less prominent, ignore it, whatever) would be very highly appreciated.

That said, I can totally understand if there’s not much motivation to continue working on Corebird right now, and want to take this opportunity to thank @baedert for writing an excellent Twitter client, whose user experience I will probably continue to reminisce about for years – it’s not your fault Twitter is xxxxxxx :(


Maybe I misunderstood whether 1.74 has this incorporated or not -- If you're not having that problem then maybe so -- if you are, I may need to try to figure some way to rebuild with that patch.

TWITTER is my primary news source, set up to of course get the feeds I like, and having a distraction free list like Corebird provides is really great. I've been looking for alternatives (even rainbowstream) and I'm not even really that concerned if Twitter breaks the auto-update functionality.

Jerry it sounds like you're probably using it much as I do, so if you find a better alternative please let me know --- thanks!
