Subject OAuth example
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2010 01:34:35 GMT
Can anyone point me in the right direction to see an oauth example?

I've seen this page:

...but that doesn't seem to be anything useful.

Web oauth typically works like this:

1) Get a request token.
2) Send the user to a login page and pass the request token.
3) User gets redirected back to a separate url with an authorised request
4) Send the authorised request token in and get an access token.

5+) Send all requests signed by the access token.

I've reviewed the code here:

...and it looks like it does actually check for validly signed requests, but
I don't really get how to:

1) Get a request token.

2) Authorise it.

3) Get an access token.

4) Mark a request as signed via oauth.

I might have misunderstood, but the example seems to assume that you already
know what you access token is before you start and just skipped over steps

Anyone actually managed to get this to work from a desktop / web app,
instead of just that one specific python example?
