OAuth Progress

July 27, 2010 11:40:36.295

I decided to take a serious look at OAuth again - since I have a Twitter account and a set of application keys, I'm using Twitter as the service to test against. I had problems the last time I tried this; I spent awhile reading various websites, and this Twitter developer page has a nice sample of what you should be creating. The problem I was having?

  • The callback url needs to be double encoded, something I missed the first time around
  • In creating the signature base, I had managed to drop an ampersand from a spot where it needed to be

So now I'm writing some actual code, instead of just ramming my head against a wall in a workspace. With luck, I should have something working (and posted to the public store) later today or tomorrow.
