This is an example of Omniauth (1.0) with Twitter integration. It was inspired by a discussion the boston.rb mailing list, specifically:
This is the simplest Rails 3.0 + Omniauth 1.0 app I could come up with. After you authorize, it can tweet a message on your behalf.
- create a twitter application at http://developer.twitter.com
- set callback to be http://127.0.0.1:3000 (assuming you are running it locally)
- copy down the consumer key and consumer secret
- export those values into your shell environment like
- bash: export TWITTER_KEY = ... ; export TWITTER_SECRET = ..
Look at it for the following
- session creation with omniauth
- using the twitter gem to communicate with Twitter
Don't look at it for anything else :) (like testing).
