Hosted services

This is a list of our hosted services. We are expanding this list as new tools or services are being developed. Some of these resources might require you to log in using RUC credentials.

DMI-TCAT-user
Track Twitter-users and save their tweets. Tweets are saved in real time. Please contact us to set up a harvest. To set up a harvest, we need the user ID’s you want to track as a commaseparated string (for instance: 15698, 15678845, 121245454 etc.). Please use a converter to convert handles to ID’s.  If you need to convert many users often, you might consider installing a Python-environment on your own device to run a script that does the conversion in bulk. You can’t set up new searches yourself, however you can access saved searches using these credentials: [username: tcat] [password: eaLso3uf85wAnoxdszrKQuFPeTG73K22XnKAQHCEE]. You need to be on RUC campus or log on to RUC VPN to access service. Analysis generates various files that typically can be analysed using visualization tools. Please reference our external resources for hints on visualization.

DMI-TCAT-topic
Track Twitter-content by selection of keywords, hashtags or geo-location and save tweets. Tweets are saved in real time. Please contact us to set up a harvest. To set up a harvest, we need the keywords or hashtags, you want to track. You can’t set up new searches yourself, however you can access saved searches using these credentials: [username: tcat] [password: BTC9Xau5oCDeGzmGoJm6z4eHzpxypgjodBzSg]. You need to be on RUC campus or log on to RUC VPN to access service. Analysis generates various files that typically can be analysed using visualization tools. Please reference our external resources for hints on visualization. Please also note, that legacy content from Your Twapper Keeper transferred to this platform does not include long tweets (+140 characters), as YTK API did not support this.

YTK (Your-twapper-keeper) (Retired)
This service has been retired, and its’ content transferred to DMI-TCAT-topic. For legacy access, the collected material can still be accessed until January 2019. Please migrate your data need to the TCAT-topic service instead.
Like DMI-TCAT-topic, this service tracks and saves content from Twitter. Saved data can be exported to Excel/JSON/RSS/HTML/SIMPLETABLE. Please note that YTK does not save tweets longer than 140 characters.

Five Filters Full-Text RSS Feeds (TBA: Coming as hosted service)
Full-Text RSS is a PHP application to help you extract article content from web pages. Extract from a standard HTML page or transform partial feeds to full text. The point of the software is to supply an URL with a webpage. The returned RSS-feed is then a “clean” version of the webpage with no ads and so. FiveFilters could then be used to extract text only from for instance news articles, and the content can thus easily be saved to a database. DiMeLab will be supplying the service as hosted service with the possibility to call the service via API. For now, we are referring to the suppliers online version, with limited functions.
