Use the identi.ca API to include Identi.ca either as an option in your programs or as the main platform for development. The Identi.ca API supports an API compatible with Twitter's, based on the open source project StatusNet. Identi.ca users can post small (140 chars or less) text notices and also subscribe to others' posts. Also, Identi.ca now supports a full feed of the public timeline via XMPP, which is likely most useful for data aggregators. Identi.ca is different from Twitter, Jaiku, Pownce, Plurk, and others because it is open, transparent, built on free software, and all the data is openly available via the Creative Commons Attribution license.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
