Rapid App.Net Widget

Display posts from one or more App.net accounts using a WordPress widget.

Can I customise the HTML output?

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

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

Start your file:


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

You can convert App.net 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 App.net 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.
