Now that we have a backbone to our ‘Flitter’ application, we learn how to create the front end and tie it all together. In this screencast, I cover a lot of CSS and getting your site to look good. I apologize for it lasting 1 hour, but I decided it’s better than chopping it up.

We also set up adding and removing friends via the interface. Oh… you hear my baby cry and my sister-in-law call. Fun stuff :D

We’re almost done! The remaining screencasts are already recorded, but not edited yet. To speed things up, I split it up into 3 or 4 screencasts. This one shows how to make the site look and feel like Twitter and also populates the right side column content. A bit of CSS, lots of Rails, and more of my ramblings :D

As I run the final stretch to see if I can get a RubyConf ticket, I decided to create a little tool to help me out. If you visit, you will see that they have a search page that auto updates when new tweets have been posted with certain keywords. I can’t watch the site all day, so I decided to write a little tool that will flash the messages on my screen using Growl. Here’s how I did it.
