Hello There!

At the moment i am trying to get Chirrup (http://
chirrup.angryamoeba.co.uk, a Twitter Comment System) to work. As the
Chirrup Script hasn't been updated since 2008 it has not implemented
the new Authentication method yet. I just tried to figure out how i
could change the Skript to work again.

I have no clue how to reacht my goal, and maybe you can help me.

This is the actual code thats does all the Twitter API stuff right
now, ho can i alter to code to use the new auth?



        // The Twitter class provides an interface for making authenticated
API calls
        // to twitter via curl. Since Chirrup needs only a tiny subset of
        // API methods, although if you wish to extend it the
        // contains pretty much all you need to do so.


        class Twitter {

                // API calls
                function getReplies($since_id=false) {
                        // API documentation
                        // Returns the 20 most recent replies (status updates 
prefixed with
@username posted by users who are friends with the user being replied
                        // to the authenticating user.  Replies are only 
available to the
authenticating user; you can not request a list of replies to another
user whether
                        // public or protected.
                        // URL: http://twitter.com/statuses/replies.format
                        // Formats: xml, json, rss, atom
                        // Parameters:
                        // page.                Optional. Retrieves the 20 next 
most recent replies.
Ex: http://twitter.com/statuses/replies.xml?page=3
                        // since.               Optional.  Narrows the returned 
results to just those
replies created after the specified HTTP-formatted date.
                        //                              The same behavior is 
available by setting an If-Modified-
Since header in your HTTP request.  Ex:
                        // since_id.    Optional.  Returns only statuses with 
an ID greater
than (that is, more recent than) the specified ID.  Ex:
                        $url = "http://twitter.com/statuses/replies.xml";;
                        if($since_id) $url .= "?since_id=".$since_id;
                        return $this->makeAuthenticatedRequest($url);

                function postStatus($username, $password, $status) {
                                $url = 
stripslashes(   urldecode($status)      )       );

                    $curler = curl_init();
                    curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
                    curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);
                    curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
                    curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_USERPWD, 
                    curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_POST, 1);

                    $result = curl_exec($curler);
                    $result_headers = curl_getinfo($curler);


                                // Return false by result code
                                return ($result_headers['http_code'] == "200")? 
true : false;

                // Generic requester

                function makeAuthenticatedRequest($url) {
                        $curler = curl_init();
                        curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
                        curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 2);
                        curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
                        //curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_POST, 0);
                        curl_setopt($curler, CURLOPT_USERPWD,
                        $result = curl_exec($curler);
                        $result_headers = curl_getinfo($curler);
                        // Key by response code to cope with "not modified" 
responses which
                        // technically cause the request to return true. We 
want to return
false in that
                        // instance to signify a general failure to fetch 
anything new.
                        if(!empty($result)) {
                                return $result;
                        } else {
                                return false;



Thanks for your help!
