That’s right. A Twitter-based ActiveRecord store.
I expect the plugin to work something like this:
development: adapter: mysql database: sockr_development username: root password: host: localhost test: adapter: mysql database: sockr_test username: root password: host: localhost production: adapter: twitter username: sockr_production password: web2point0h
(Note here how I’m still using a traditional RDBMS for development and test environments. Kicking in Twitter here would be quite silly, as we don’t need the scalability for just our local user as we’re developing. We really need it for production!)
That’s it! The plugin would take care of marshaling your ActiveRecord objects into 140 byte chunks and sending it off to Twitter HQ for cold storage.
Keep your eyes peeled for the plugin, coming soon!
