Building mPrints with the mPrinter

For our most recent product, I slapped together a neat little project using

some of the OAuth code that was provided by the mPrinter team. You can easily put together this code on

but it’s a very robust and well documented API (and the first to really do OAuth), so heck, let’s use it. While my code can also be found on my Github, this post will give you a bit of an idea about what’s going on in the code that I set up, and before diving in, we’ll briefly go over how the mPrinter works in its current iteration.

The mPrinter is a cloud-based printer that can either pull html from a website (to be parsed with cheerio) or their OAuth system, which allows you to make API calls using the printer and eventually control the printer through API calls. This data can be gathered in a JavaScript file (usually called main.js) and functions run upon it, after which the code is fed into a template file or simply appended to the HTML

output within the main JavaScript file. However, if you’re outputting more than a few lines of content, it’s best to feed it into a template page so you can better organize your layout in CSS and HTML. Now, let’s talk about the code

that was written using OAuth, Twitter’s API, and the mPrinter and how you can set it up yourself.

Getting a

grasp on OAuth can be a bit of a pain, but the general idea is that you have to prove that device(s) can use your ‘identity’ by providing them authorization. On Twitter’s dev site, create an app that will be for your mPrint. Once the app is created, it will generate a series of keys – the keys you want will be the ‘Consumer Key’ and the ‘Consumer Secret’, which prove to twitter that the mPrinter can use your ‘identity’ given proper authorization. You’ll then want to add a new mPrint on the mPrinter site and add this code to your file ‘main.js’ – this code here will go in the file you create called ‘template’. Remember that while open-sourcing your code is the best code, you don’t want anyone stealing your API keys, so make sure your project is not public. Once you have dropped the code in the two files, remember to insert your keys into the main.js file where instructed. After that, save and reload the page. You should have the option now to authenticate your API (a wild button appears!), and after authenticating, you should be ready to

receive Grand St’s tweets! Appending the auth code in line 20 of main.js and rewriting some of the JSON parsing can easily let you switch from Grand St’s tweets to your own (for example, you could also track your own Twitter mentions this way).

That’s about it. I hope to have some more interesting code out for the mPrinter shortly, but in the mean time, good luck hacking around with it! IF you have any questions or comments, you can always drop us a line at

    It’s too bad that Andrew Muldowney is giving his Kickstarter supporters the shaft. He’s shipping new purchases through his website, not fulfilling the pledge rewards, and ignoring emails. I had high hopes for the mPrinter, but the business side of things is a mess.
