Slides Tweeter Update 2

A short update to my post about tweeting Google Slides presentations after some work this weekend.

  • Working AddOn menu prototyped.
  • Check if a user is logged into Twitter on launch. If not, log them in.
  • The user can append a hashtag to each slide. This is stored in each presentation until the user changes the input.
  • The custom player now launches in a pared-down popup rather than a new tab.
  • Scrolling enabled/disabled.
  • Each slide is posted on advance (slide 1 posted when you move to slide 2) to buy a little time (still laggy).

to do:

  1. Improve the connect to Twitter flow.
  2. Work to improve the tweet posting time.
  3. Confirmation popup when a tweet is posted successfully.
  4. Error handling when a tweet fails to post for some reason.

    This is cool to watch unfold as you blog it, Brian. Thanks for taking it on.

    Have you looked at the way Martin Hawksey handles the Twitter auth on ?

      I haven’t seen the 6.1 updates…I’ll check it out. The main thing I’d like to avoid (if I can) is needing to have people make their own app. I know that can cause issues (key/secret revocation if it is abused) but it would make it much easier to use for more people.
