Modify Turpial to connect to StatusNet

As I had told you, I am using Hotot to connect to a server StatusNet that we implement in my work network.

The point is, one of the alternatives that I liked the most was Turpial, due to its prestige and interface, but it did not give me extra configuration options, except to connect to Twitter and But then I thought: Turpial es OpenSource and it's written in Python true? Why not modify it so that it connects where I want?

I started looking and found the file I needed, which contains the preferences for en /usr/share/pyshared/turpial/api/protocols/identica/ From that file the only lines that interested me were these:

class Identica(Protocol):
def init(self):
Protocol.init(self, '', '',
'', '',
'', '')

Which of course I modified, leaving it like this:

class Identica(Protocol):
def init(self):
Protocol.init(self, '', 'http://servidor_local/index.php/api',
'http://servidor_local/index.php/api', 'http://servidor_local/index.php/tag/',
'http://servidor_local/index.php/group', 'http://servidor_local/index.php')

Ready. I saved the file (I always made a save before) and executed Turpial. I selected access by, I put my data and voila !!!

    A pity that it is GTK ... if it were Qt I would like it much more 😉
    Maybe I'm more than pleased with Choqok hehe ...

      The same as for TavK7. Although Hotot is not bad either ...
