Twitter Integration

In order for your app to use Twitter you must edit the apps settings and click on the 3rd Party tab and reveal the Social Networks pane. That is where you enter the "Twitter consumer key" and the "Twitter consumer secret". Once you have entered those values, save your settings and your app can now Post to Twitter and use the other Twitter specific actions and View events. The most common actions is Post to Twitter which is useful for sharing. It will prompt the user to log in, and that's why the separate Log into Twitter action is rarely used.


The "Twitter consumer key" and the "Twitter consumer secret" are actually generated on the Twitter Developer site here: https://apps.twitter.com/  You must first create a twitter account if you don't already have one and log into it. Once you log into the https://apps.twitter.com/ site you choose Create New App, and then fill out the simple form: 

Name: Your app's name
Description: A short description of your app
Website: If your app doesn't have a corresponding website you can put anything here as a placeholder (e.g. http://www.placeholder.com)
Callback URL: The callback URL is not relevant to the functioning of your app but is required for Android functionality. Fill out this field with a placeholder such as http://www.twitter.com

After you have filled in all the necessary information, click on the tab that says "Keys and Access Tokens" where you will find the Consumer Key (API Key) and Consumer Secret (API Secret) values. Navigate to the 3rd Party > Social Media section of the Eachscape platform and enter these values in the appropriate fields. The next time you generate a build of our app, your Twitter actions will work as expected.

 

IMPORTANT

This Video Tutorial shows and older version of EachScape.
