I’ve been playing with Tweetie 2 for the iPhone this evening. As I was browsing the documentation, I noticed that you can set a custom API root. This means that you can use Tweetie 2 with microblogging services other than Twitter, including identi.ca and status.net (formerly laconi.ca) installations.
I thought I’d give it a go, and it appears to be working rather well. Here’s how to do it:
When adding a new account, click on the gear icon just to the right and under the Password field.
This will take you to the Advanced Settings screen, where you should enter the following details:
- API Root https://identi.ca/api
- Search API http://identi.ca/api
Then simply return to the Add Account screen and add your identi.ca Username and Password.
Most features appear to be working, although I haven’t tested this thoroughly. If you try it, let me know how it goes.
