    Wink Hotot: Lightweight Twitter Client

    Has anyone tried the new Hotot? It's a Twitter client; lightweight and has extensions for future extensibilities. It's still new though, but I believe it has the potential to become better as it matures.

    First read about it from WebUpd8. Decided to try it out since there's no other Twitter client that can satisfy me (well, apart from TwitterGadget, that is). Also, one of my Twitter friends have tried it himself and I too agree with him (about the future of it).

    Here is a screenshot of how the interface looks like:


    Installing:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-webkit python-notify python-keybinder mercurial python-distutils-extra
    Code:
    cd
    Code:
    hg clone https://hotot.googlecode.com/hg/ hotot
    Code:
    cd hotot/
    Code:
    python ./hotot/hotot.py
    UPDATE: There's a PPA for Hotot: https://launchpad.net/~jimmyxu/+archive/hotot/ (Thanks, FuturePilot!). You can also try to install from it. It still is the same version.

    If any of you are trying this out, give a shout out here!
