Displaying twitter feeds using javascript

Hi

I want to display twitter data of the users in twitter format. I have an api which returns twitter html's. I make an ajax call in javascript to the api and get the HTML data. But when i set the div innerHTML to the html data it does not display in twitter format. It displays in raw format. If have the same data written in the html directly under the div it displays in  twitter format. I am attaching two files stream_old.html and test.html. In test.html i have copied that html data and it displays in twitter format.

In case of stream_old.html, i have made and ajax call and get the data and then set in the div, but it does not displays in twitter format. In both the files i have included the script <script async src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

stream_old.html hits an api https://stream.alphamaven.com/markets/lse/indices/ftse_100/cashtag_stream/oembed?uid=825060248, this is a continous stream of data. I have another API which returns fixed 3 tweets, even in that it is not displayed in twitter format.

Also attaching the a.js file required for stream_old.html


thanks

At first glance I would say that the CSS from twitter is either not being acquired, or is not being applied.  Without the live page there is no way to determine which case is most likely.

All you are going to get is speculation and guess without a link, and most Experts are going to ignore the question because there is not enough information to work with.

Hi

Can you please let me know what information is required for this. I have send all the files . if you run stream_old.html and test.html you will see the difference and i am sure it will help you decide the exact issue. Please let me know if any more information is required.

thanks

That is not a live page or even a valid page.  All I can confirm from that is what I already know.  You don't have the CSS being applied.

Is there a way we can apply CSS or Js using innerHTML

thanks

Of course not. The styles need to be declared in the head of a valid page.  There are multiple rules the have to be applied to the elements within each tweet.

All you have presented so far is a lot of hacked code.  You are never going to get this sort of thing tp work without valid stable markup.  

If you want further help, then I need a link to the page where you are trying to implement; not hacked fragments.

Thanks but i found the solution. I just included the JS before updating the innerHTML and it worked for me.  Just changed the below line and it worked

a.unshift(b + "<script src='http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js' charset='utf-8'><\/script>");

Then the styling is being generated dynamically from script.  Also a hack, but when you rely on external code that is sometimes all that is available.
