Programing language: Python
First release: March 16, 2010
Turpial – a light, fast and beautiful microblogging client written in Python which supports 3 different interfaces: Shell, Gtk and Qt.
Turpial is an alternative client for microblogging with multiple interfaces. At the moment it supports Twitter and Identi.ca and works with Gtk and Qt interfaces, but we are still working on more fancy features.
Turpial tries to identify your desktop environment and load the interface that best suit to it. If you use a Gtk based environment then Turpial will load Gtk interface but in a non-Gtk based environment it will load the Qt interface.
Turpial also has desktop integration features like notifications, and themes. It includes convenient features like muting users, and url shorteners.
The project developer is Wil Alvarez.
The last version of Turpial was released in December 2013.
