OmniAuth WIP

Gem Version

This gem contains the WIP ( strategy for OmniAuth.

Before You Begin

You should have already installed OmniAuth into your app; if not, read the OmniAuth README to get started.

Now sign in into the WIP OAuth Applications page and create an application. Take note of your Application UID and Secret because that is what your web application will use to authenticate against the WIP API. Make sure to set a correct callback URL or else you may get authentication errors. Usually this is something like NOTE: Callback URLs need to use HTTPS, except for localhost.

Using This Strategy

First start by adding this gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-wip'

If you need to use the latest HEAD version, you can do so with:

gem 'omniauth-wip', github: 'marckohlbrugge/omniauth-wip'

Next, tell OmniAuth about this provider. For a Rails app, your config/initializers/omniauth.rb file should look like this:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :wip, "APPLICATION_UID", "SECRET"

Replace "APPLICATION_UID" and "SECRET" with the appropriate values you obtained earlier.

Authentication Hash

An example auth hash available in request.env['omniauth.auth']:

  :provider => "wip",
  :uid => "1",
  :info => {
    :name => "Marc Köhlbrugge",
    :username => "marc",
    :url => ""
  :credentials => {
    :token => "a1b2c3d4...", # The OAuth 2.0 access token
    :secret => "abcdef1234"
  :extra => {
    :access_token => "", # An OAuth::AccessToken object
    :raw_info => {
      :name => "Marc Köhlbrugge",
      :username => "marc",
      :url => ""
You can’t perform that action at this time.
