I am iterating over twitter using python, the user inputs a topic to search for on twitter and then the location to view on the map in leaflet. The leaflet map is created automatically in the browser. How do I get the marker to show up at the tweet location assuming there is coordinates associated with the tweet which in a lot of cases does not happen. Below is the code I think you need to look into this. Suggestions? Using folium, webbrowser, os, geopy, TwitterSearch modules here.
for tweet in ts.search_tweets_iterable(tso): tweetText = ( '@%s tweeted: %s' % ( tweet['user']['screen_name'], tweet['text'] ) ) print tweetText if tweet['place'] is not None: (lat, lng) = geo(tweet['place']['full_name']) print 'And they said it from (' + str(lat) +', ' +str(lng)+')' else: print "And their place wasn't specified..." Here is the piece for the marker using the folium module for tweetLocation in ts.search_tweets_iterable(tso): folium.Marker([lat, lng], popup='tweetText').add_to(mapLeafletPython)
I originally had the for tweetLocation loop in the for tweet in ts.search...(tso): part but it wouldn't work. Have them pulled apart doesn't help either.
Here is some documentation for folium:
also (looking through this now...)
Let me know if you have questions, I'd be happy to provide additional details.
