# Mastodon to Twitter bot
This gem uses the Mastodon stream API to replicate your toot on Twitter, handling the "500 to 140 characters limit" conversion.
I advice you to use [rbenv](https://github.com/rbenv/rbenv/) to manage your Ruby environment to not mess up your system.
To use it:
* Clone this repository somewhere (`git clone https://git.imirhil.fr/aeris/cross-post/`)
* Install dependencies with Bundler (`bundler install`)
* Create a `$HOME/.cross-post.yml` configuration file, based on the example available [here](https://git.imirhil.fr/aeris/cross-post/src/master/config.yml)
* Register the app on Twitter (`bundle exec bin/twitter-register`)
* You can reuse my Twitter app OAuth credentials, or register a new app from scratch [here](https://apps.twitter.com/)
* Register the app on Mastodon (`bundle exec bin/mastodon-register`)
* You need to change the consumer key and secret to whaveter your instance have for this app. See with your instance admin for real values.
* If your instance currently doesn't support this app, just remove the consumer part, registration process will create a new app on your instance.
* Start the replication (`bundle exec bin/feed-twitter`)
* Enjoy
If needed, a SystemD unit example is available [here](https://git.imirhil.fr/aeris/cross-post/src/master/mastodon-twitter.service)
