I've recently re-organized the source code to make it easier to find what you need. The main folders are Old and New. You'll want to use the New folder because that's where the latest version of LINQ to Twitter is. If you're a beginner or not familiar with
all of the .NET technologies, you'll want to just open a technology specific project. This will help avoid all of the environmental setup issues required for all of the supported technologies. The easiest sample to use is the console sample, located here:
I'm using Visual Studio 2013, with all the latest service packs. If you open the file named
VS will open that in a new solution and you can build. Just add the
keys in the App.config appSettings
After you've got that working, you can open one of the other demos, under \New\Demos
that are more specific to the technology you want to work with. If you're interested, there's also a VB demos project,
that has a few examples to let you see what a translation from C# might look like.
The documentation on
Securing Your Applications
explains OAuth and how it can be used for different technologies in LINQ to Twitter. The documentation on
Making API Calls
shows the values provided by each entity, mapping between LINQ to Twitter and the Twitter API, and examples of commands and queries with LINQ to Twitter. There's also a
LINQ to Twitter FAQ
with an extensive list of things that can go wrong with OAuth and tips for fixing those problems.
