@djmoch thx for keeping us up to date.

The 410-message reads "The Site Streams and User Streams endpoints have been turned off. Please migrate to alternate APIs. See". More information on the API-deactivation can be found @

Edit: More infos on the future of rainbowstream:

@duffydack is right that the issue is an upstream issue. Nonetheless, as a workaround I was able to copy the module from the 1.3.7 release and host it in this repo. That's the good news.

The bad news is that it appears the API rainbowstream is using has been shut down by Twitter. I'm not able to use rainbowstream anymore, and given the poor level of support from upstream I would not hold my breath that this is resolved anytime soon. Rainbowstream is broken and I don't know if/when it will be fixed.

Same issue with 1.3.8 as @tuqueque. Issue opened on GH

Hello, I get a similar (but not the same) error when I try to run Rainbowstream (1.3.8)... I reinstalled the packages @djmoch recommended and I still get the same, following error:

@djmoch. Thank you a lot. I needed to rebuild the next packages:


Then run it perfectly.

@drguell, you need to rebuild/reinstall after the Python update

I had some problems with the last archlinux update:

Per @zapata's comment, I've disabled the version check in code. You may want to subscribe to notifications of updates to this package instead.

zapata commented on 2018-07-09 17:31

Maybe you can temporarily disable upgrade_center() in (line 242).

I realize everyone gets a notice saying that 1.3.8 is available, but that isn't really true since it is not listed in PyPI or tagged in the official GitHub repo. That to say, upstream has an issue with their version notifications. I don't consider the 1.3.7 PKGBUILD out-of-date until either PyPI is updated or there's an official GitHub release (preferably PyPI).
