Scrolling Twitter Gadget in Oracle WebCenter in Less than 2 Minutes

In a previous post we saw how to build a twitter portlet using the Fusion Middleware stack in a few minutes. If you’re more on a quick prototyping or proof of concept project, you can do something similar or even more visual without any coding whatsoever. Twitter has a set of gadgets that you can integrate into your Web site. Here are the more-or-less trivial steps:

  1. Find the gadget you want to use: http://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets
    For example, if it’s the search widget, you can customize it by specifying the Search Query, the Title, and the Caption. 


    When done, click the Finish and Grab Code button and copy the source provided.

  2. Create a WebCenter page.
  3. Drop an HTML Markup component on the page and specify the Value field by pasting the code you copied to the clipboard above. The parameters are self-explanatory, modifying them is very straight-forward.
  4. Save your changes, and return to your page. Here is what my scrolling Twitter gadget looks like.
