Chq.OAuth is a simple C# OAuth library for creating OAuth consumers in Windows 8 Metro applications. This is an early stage project so things will probably change :)

You can grab the latest version on NuGet:


1: Create an OAuthContext object, this holds a whole bunch of informaion about the service that you're communicating with.

var context =  new OAuthContext(ConsumerKey, ConsumerSecret, RequestUrl, AuthorizeUrl, AccessUrl, CallbackUrl);

2: Create a client

var client =  new Client(context);

3: Request a temporary token (The RequestToken) from the OAuth provider

String requestTokenResponse = await client.MakeRequest("GET")
                    .WithParameters( new { scope = "email"} ) //Optional, changes depending on provider
client.RequestToken = TokenContainer.Parse(requestTokenResponse);

4: Authorize with the temporary RequestToken

Uri authorizationUri = client.GetAuthorizationUri();
//Authorize the temporary token using the authorizationUri
//One option is to use the supplied WebAuthenticationBroker
WebAuthenticationResult WebAuthenticationResult = await WebAuthenticationBroker.AuthenticateAsync(WebAuthenticationOptions.None, authorizationUri, client.Context.CallbackUri);

//The verification code could be returned in the response
//i.e. Parse it out of WebAuthenticationResult.ResponseData.ToString();
//Or it could be displayed to the user and they will have to enter it into your application manually
String verificationCode = ... 

5: Exchange the temporary token for an access token

String accessTokenResponse = await client.MakeRequest("GET")
                    .ForAccessToken(client.RequestToken.Token, verificationCode)
client.AccessToken = TokenContainer.Parse(accessTokenResponse);

6: Yay, you're done! Now you can access protected resources.

String getResponse = await client.MakeRequest("GET")
                  .ForResource(client.AccessToken.Token, protectedResourceUri)
                  .WithParameters(new { param = "value" }) //it's important to add the prameters after the resource, internal paramerters reset on ForResource calls
String postResponse = await client.MakeRequest("POST")
                  .ForResource(client.AccessToken.Token, protectedResourceUri)

String postResponse = await client.MakeRequest("POST")
                  .WithFormEncodedData(new {name = "Peter"}) //this will be sent as a key/value in the request body an is included in the OAuth signature
                  .ForResource(client.AccessToken.Token, protectedResourceUri)

7: Fork it, have fun, create a wrapper for your favourite web applications
