Rapid App.Net Widget


Display your latest posts in a WordPress widget without slowing your

The Rapid Widget doesn’t apply any styling to your website, giving
you complete control over the look.

Posts and your content are loaded separately to ensure a delayed response
from doesn’t slow down your website.

Based upon Rapid Twitter Widget.

Development on GitHub

Development of this plugin is taking place in a
GitHub repository.

Only tagged releases will be added to the svn repository.


Can I customise the HTML output?

Yes, you can create the JavaScript function RapidADN.generate_html and
the Rapid Widget will defer to your custom script.

Your custom function will need to be defined prior to the Rapid
Widget JavaScript file loading.

Start your file:


RapidADN.generate_html = function (screen_name, posts) {
    return '<li>Hello</li>';

You can convert entities by calling the
function RapidADN.process_entities( post ) and obtain the relative time
with the function RapidADN.relative_time(time).

Can multiple instances of the widget be used?


I see less than the requested number of posts displayed

The Rapid widget may return less than the requested number of
posts if the requested account has a high number of reposts in its timeline.

What’s with the strange class names like .adn__mention and .adn__mention–reply?

The widget uses the BEM naming convention for class names, which has been
nicely summarised by Nicolas Gallagher.

They’re a little strange at first but I find them surprisingly useful.
