Tweet Lanes has gone open source. After months of trying to decide what to do with the project, creator Chris Lacey has decided to open source the popular twitter application for Android.
Here's Chris Lacey's post on Google+:
A few months ago I announced that I had ceased active development on Tweet Lanes. This was a tough decision for me given how much time and effort I put had put into the project, but given the reality of Twitter's hard 100k user token limit, I felt then (as I do now) that moving on was the right thing for me to do.
But just because I am no longer actively developing Tweet Lanes, doesn't mean that development of the app has to stop.
So with that in mind, I'm pleased to announce that Tweet Lanes has gone open source.
I've released the source code for everything: the Tweet Lanes client, the accompanying SocialNetLib library (which works with Twitter and is 90% done for App.net); and even the AppEngine project for tweetlanes.com.
My sincerest hope is that by releasing this code, the community can give Tweet Lanes the time and attention that it deserves.
Here's a link to project on GitHub.
Here's a video review of Tweetlanes posted in November of 2012:
