Displaying a Twitter feed

In these tutorials I show how to display a Twitter feed via the Twitter API, then cache the output with fragment caching.

You can find all the code behind this tutorial in the GitHub Repo.

Gems

Here are the main gems I used:

  • twitter - The Ruby interface we used to talk to the Twitter API.
  • dotenv-rails - We used this gem to load up our consumer key and secret into our app, so we can access them via ENV['TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY'].
