DCTAuth

A library for performing authorised web requests to services using OAuth, OAuth 2.0 and basic authentiaction.

Documentation

DCTAuth is fully documented and there is a feed for the docset that you can add to Xcode.

Known working services

While the implementations should work for all services using that standard, I can confirm that they work for the following providers:

OAuth

OAuth 2.0

Basic Authentication

Service Notes

Facebook

Facebook require the callback URL to be in the format fbXXX://blah/ where XXX is your app ID.

Windows Live

Microsoft have enforced that the callback URL (redirect URI) must have a scheme of HTTP or HTTPS, so to authorise with Windows Live you should set your own URL handler on the DCTAuth class to open the authorization URL in a web view inside the app. This does go against general OAuth practice, but DCTAuth allows it. Setting a callback URL with http:// as the scheme will result in working authentication to Windows Live. As far as I can tell you should use at least `wl.signin` as the scope.
