heroku - AutoTweet from HerokuWe've published the last tutorial in the series. In this opportunity, we show how to fully customize AutoTweetNG to work with your own Facebook App, but hosting it in the Heroku cloud application platform.

Heroku for Facebook Developers: It's the recommended Facebook platform to host Apps. In the App creation work-flow, it's just an option that allows a very simple account creation. So, you upload AutoTweetNG Facebook Connector, and it's ready to authorize your Channel to publish the content.

PRO: Facebook requires a SSL connection (secure) for their Apps. Heroku provides a general SSL hosting. With Heroku, there's no need to purchase and install a SSL certificate in your site.

CON: Heroku is a cloud application platform. It has particular rules. For example, to upload the files, you have to configure a GIT connection to your App. More info about GIT, here and here.

AutoTweetNG in Joomla3

The picture is clear now. Starting in January 2013, we are going to be launching AutoTweetNG and all the extensions in Joomla 3.

  • January 2013, AutoTweetNG v6.4 for Joomla 2.5 / 3 (content plugin only)
  • The current AutoTweetNG v6.3 plugins are going to be code compatible, but we are going to verify each one with the v6.4 seal when we have a working test case in Joomla 3 (not all of the underlying components are available now).
  • SobiPro extensions, we are waiting for the new SobiPro 1.1 with Joomla 3 support to define a roadmap.
  • JomSocial extensions, JomSocial has announced Joomla 3 support for April 2013. We'll have to wait until Q2 2013.

About Joomla 1.5 Support

We will drop Joomla 1.5 support as soon as the Joomla 3 version of the extension is available. Even after the Joomla 3 version comes out, you will still be able to download the old Joomla 1.5 version, but they will not be supported anymore.

Please, let us know if you have any question.
