Is it possible to connect to the new Twitter streaming API using ColdFusion?
I'm referring to the service documented here: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/streaming_api
I've been able to connect to it using curl.exe and a batch file and data file (see below). Is it possible to get ColdFusion to do the same thing, just capturing the JSON data that's being sent? Once it's captured, it should be easy enough to de-serialize the JSON with CF functions and go to town.
Test.bat: (replace "AnyTwitterAccount:Passwor
d" with a twitter account and password)
curl -d @following.txt http://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/filter.json
I'm looking for the mechanism to establish the connection, and capture the JSON data that streams through. After that, no problem.
