Inspired by the creation of the pump.io open, federated social protocol in 2013 [1] and the need to bridge posts between a diversity of social networks (Pump.io, GNU Social [2], Diaspora [3], Twitter, and Facebook), I recently released an alpha version of a social network bridge, named NavierStokes. An homage to the equations at the heart of fluid mechanics, NavierStokes uses external tools to tie together social networks and allow you to distribute posts from one to another.

It is primitive but functional. At least one other person is using it right now for post broadcasting. To learn more about NavierStokes, check out the documentation page (also where you can download it). To install it, you need to be familiar with Python and be able to compile/run C, PHP, Ruby, and Python programs.
