Overview

Beautiful Ladybird microblogging client

Beautiful Ladybird is a client application for Twitter and Identi.ca microblogs. It is written in Ada programming language and distributed under ISC license.

Dependencies

Beautiful Ladybird is mostly tested with Janus/Ada and GNAT compilers. Other compilers might work, but at the moment that is not guaranteed.

Building

To build the client with GNAT, you need to first fetch the source code and the dependencies:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tkoskine/ladybird
$ cd ladybird
$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tkoskine/hauki
$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tkoskine/jdaughter
$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tkoskine/curl-ada

Then compile the code:

# curl-ada needs to be build separately first
$ cd curl-ada && make && cd ..

# then the rest
$ make

After a while you should have binary called twit2 in the current directory.
