What pupose does Tweepy serve in WahCade? Why would WahCade want to use Twitter?

Wah!Cade doesn't use Tweepy/Twitter, Mah!Cade does.

There is no real purpose to it, as with every change it is an experiment. Although with the recent policy changes to the twitter api it has become more difficult to to setup a r/w application which is annoying.

Mah!Cade will always be experimental, There has never been any other promise, therefore it will include some things as tests.

You may always return to using stock Wah!Cade, ignore the integration or fork the project yourself.

Well, I have an OwnCloud Server now, what about WahCade sync of Save States and Save games to OwnCloud?

Why would the frontend launcher handle the emulator save states?

There certainly is a need for a program which serves this purpose, i've thought this for years (backing up all saves from games/profiles). To be honest I was thinking of looking at this as a pyqt project but I've simply not had time to map it out. I'd have liked to have owncloud/local dir/dropbox/ftp/ssh integration/.

Wahcade would then offer a return/exit game command which we could use to trigger the sync if not handled by symlinks etc automagically.

Have you tried it with the ownCloud Client running in BlackBox or FluxBox? Often times OwnCloud won't actually load.

random; I know owncloud will error is there is no systray available, on openbox I prioritised the loading until the systray equivilent was active, can recall what that was (tint2?).
