I was inspired to build this project as I love building new things to incorporate into my daily terminal routine. Creating your own tools is always fun, particularly if other people get some enjoyment out of them.

What it does

Slice Of ML creates a nice slice of the week's top tweets from the Machine Learning community on Twitter. Just call it from the terminal and have a nice TUI to explore your tweets.

How we built it

We built the library using Python, and you can follow along with how we built it here.

Challenges we ran into

Keeping a CLI persistently authenticated between usages is tough if you don't have the right tools!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of the fact that this project should enable many other people to build their own mini Twitter universe.

What we learned

We learnt lots about how to get the best out of the Twitter API and how authentication has been done since the 1970s! (Yes, .netrc is that old!)

What's next for Slice Of ML

We hope that someone comes along and extends it further for their own preferences and then tells us about it! It's great seeing others building upon what you've done.
