Gowalla OAuth API example
This little app demonstrates how to use Gowalla's OAuth API to authorize an application, fetch user info using that authorization and, if the user has granted permission, check in on behalf of that user.
How to Get It Running
gem install bundler
Open up another terminal tab and do:
API_KEY='your_key' API_SECRET='your_secret' bundle exec shotgun -p 3001
Now open up
http://localhost:3001/ in your browser and everything should be ready to go!
- Check in requires a browser with HTML5 geolocation services
- Safari seems to put on its propellerhead beanie when it asks for location. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
