Project 4 - NickTwitter

NickTwitter is a basic twitter app to read and compose tweets the Twitter API.

Time spent: 12 hours spent in total

User Stories

The following required functionality is completed:

  • [X] User can sign in using OAuth login flow
  • [X] User can view last 20 tweets from their home timeline
  • [X] The current signed in user will be persisted across restarts
  • [X] In the home timeline, user can view tweet with the user profile picture, username, tweet text, and timestamp.
  • [X] Retweeting and favoriting should increment the retweet and favorite count.

The following optional features are implemented:

  • [ ] User can load more tweets once they reach the bottom of the feed using infinite loading similar to the actual Twitter client.
  • [X] User should be able to unretweet and unfavorite and should decrement the retweet and favorite count.
  • [X] User can pull to refresh.

The following additional features are implemented:

  • [X] Added the handle to the twitter cell.
  • [X] Added a profile view so you can see information about yourself.
  • [X] Added a loading hud while the table loads.
  • [X] Changed the coloring of the app.
  • [X] Made it a clean flow.

Please list two areas of the assignment you'd like to discuss further with your peers during the next class (examples include better ways to implement something, how to extend your app in certain ways, etc):

  1. How to not exceed the api call limit
  2. How to incrememnt and decrement properly if the uikit stuff is done in the cell's file

Notes

Describe any challenges encountered while building the app.

  • When the user cancels the authorization there is an error.

  • I also did not know the best way to show the incrementing of the score in the demo app. It increments on the actual Twitter correctly but calling the api too much kicks you and reloading the table doesn't have the updated information so it still has not registered that you have favorited or retweeted something in the demo. The pull to refresh was my solution to show it in the demo app.

Please list two areas of the assignment you'd like to discuss further with your peers during the next class (examples include better ways to implement something, how to extend your app in certain ways, etc):
