1. Install GNU social with _fancy urls_ enabled (if your instance has
"index.php" in its URLs, Qvitter will not work properly) and HTTPS enabled (it's
always best to use HTTPS from the beginning, there will be issues with federation
if you choose to enable HTTPS later)

The settings should be self-explanatory. In doubt, ask in the !qvitter group on, or email
6. For better performance, disable checkschema (instructions in GNU social's config.php),
but don't forget to run it when updating plugins (including Qvitter).
7. To change the logo, edit /img/sprite.png. For easier git-updates, put it in GNU social's locale folder, and edit the sprite path setting above.
1. Translation files reside in /locale and /doc folders.
2. When translating .json files, don't translate the placeholder strings inside curly brackets {}
Qvitter uses GNU social's built in "twitter compatible" API. The API was designed to be
compatible with Twitter's API v1.0. Some documentation is here: <>
Twitter's API v1.1 documentation is also useful, but may be partly incorrect.
Qvitter extends this API in a few undocumented ways. Check onRouterInitialized() in QvitterPlugin.php
for ideas about paths for the API extensions.
