Bug Description

I was chatting with Ken about the ubuntu stack exchange and we realized that it would be an excellent social network to add to gwibber, that way you can tweet your favorite questions when you need help, see a stream of new questions about tags you care about, etc.

The droid stack application has a great UI for browsing questions, etc. Plus I think the voting numbers and the tags would look great in the existing gwibber UI, as well as seperate columns for questions you care about, etc.

Information on the Stack API is here:

I've linked Ken's first cut, here's what it looks like. If anyone wants to help finish it off that would be great.

I was unable to provide anything useful for this. Removing myself from the list.

Just a small thought, will probably require Open ID support.

Just fetching new questions wouldn't require authentication. But anything much more than that would.

(And actually I suspect because the OpenID implementation is with Stack Exchange, Gwibber could probably treat it like most other website.)

Changed in gwibber:
