I have some code lying around for this, that I need to finish and clean up a bit. This is probably something that will be added after the release of v1.0.

Hi. When are you able to release your v.1.0 of Skybrud with implementation of linkedin authentification support?

LinkedIn is currently not an area of focus, since I'm working on improving the implementation for the services already supported instead.

I don't really have a time frame for when v1.0 will be released since I primarily work on this project in my spare time. An optimistic guess is that v1.0 will be out in a couple of months, but LinkedIn support is something that will be introduced after this release.

But as I wrote in my previous comment, I do have some unfinished code for LinkedIn. I will try to find some time to wrap this a bit, and push the code to GitHub ;)

@makdff I have now added a new project to the solution called Skybrud.Social.LinkedIn. I have uploaded this due to requests by a few users, but it will not be officially supported until at least after v1.0, meaning that I wont have the time to document or answer questions.

Anyways, this little snippet might help you out with then authentication using OAuth 2.0:

@using Skybrud.Social.LinkedIn.OAuth2

@model MvcApplication1.Models.TestPage

@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Index";
}

@{

    // Handle input
    string action = Request.QueryString["do"];
    string code = Request.QueryString["code"];
    string state = Request.QueryString["state"];

    // Initialize the OAuth client
    LinkedInOAuthClient oauth = new LinkedInOAuthClient {
        ApiKey = "",
        ApiSecret = "",
        RedirectUri = Model.BaseUrl
    };

    if (action == "login") {

        // Redirect the user to the authentication page at LinkedIn.com
        Response.Redirect(oauth.GetAuthorizationUrl("bacon", "r_basicprofile"));

    } else if (!String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(code)) {

        LinkedInAccessTokenResponse token = oauth.GetAccessTokenFromAuthCode(code);
        oauth.AccessToken = token.AccessToken;

        DateTime expiresAt = DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(token.ExpiresIn.TotalSeconds);

        <table>
            <tr>
                <td style="font-size: 10px; font-weight: bold; text-transform: uppercase; padding-right: 25px;">Expires in</td>
                <td style="font-size: 12px;">
                    @token.ExpiresIn.TotalSeconds
                    (~@token.ExpiresIn.TotalDays days &bull; @expiresAt.ToString("r"))
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td style="font-size: 10px; font-weight: bold; text-transform: uppercase; padding-right: 25px;">Access Token</td>
                <td style="font-size: 12px;">
                    @token.AccessToken
                </td>
            </tr>
        </table>

        <br />

        <a href="@Model.BaseUrl?do=login" class="button">Login again</a>

    } else if (Request.QueryString["error"] != null) {

        <p><b>@Request.QueryString["error"]</b><br />@Request.QueryString["error_description"]</p>

        <a href="@Model.BaseUrl?do=login" class="button">Login with LinkedIn</a>

    } else {

        <a href="@Model.BaseUrl?do=login" class="button">Login with LinkedIn</a>

    }

}

I haven't really updated any of the code, but the LinkedIn implementation now has it's own repository, so you can follow the progress here:

https://github.com/abjerner/Skybrud.Social.LinkedIn

Eventually the LinkedIn project will also be released as it's own NuGet package, although I don't really have a time frame for this.
