Subject Re: Help! 2-legged OAuth Example Anyone?
Date Sun, 17 Feb 2013 04:36:08 GMT
I have a simple couchapp for managing user tokens and secrets here:

Albeit it does use the BrowserID plugin for CouchDB.

It is specific to our use case however feel free to fork and modify.

There's also, in the same GH project some code the connects with Python via 2-legged OAuth.

Also, I have a Chrome Extension that does all the OAuth client stuff in JS:

Hi All,

I'm using CouchDB 1.2.1 and I want to leverage 2-legged OAuth.

What I want to do is allow a external consumer application to create a
_users document (account) and provide the developer of the consumer app
with a consumer key and secret to protect requests.

I just cant for the life of me get my head around how I create a _user
document for the developer of the consumer application that includes the
allocated consumer key and secret and then can use the _users
authentication and authorization API to validate signed requests.

there is a bit of description here
the structure of the _user document for an oauth user but I dont see
any practicial examples (ideally in php) that show how I can use the
integrated OAuth to authenticate consumer app requests.

Any help would be much appreciated.
