oauthc was originally developed to test the Qype API. Run these examples agains it:
post /feedbacks '<feedback><link href="http://api.qype.com/v1/reviews/66" rel="http://schemas.qype.com/review"/><comment><![CDATA[This review contains offending text]]></comment></feedback>' post /places/31/checkins '<checkins><point>53.5505,9.93631</point></checkins>' get /positions/53.55224,9.999/recommended_places get /locators/de600-hamburg/feed get /badges get /users/tobiasb/badges get /places/31.json?expand=popular_checkins
make sure to have rlwrap installed, to get CLI history support: utopia.knoware.nl/~hlub/rlwrap (or “port install rlwarp” or “brew install rlwrap”)
Bug reports, suggestions, updates: github.com/rngtng/oauth-cli/issues
check if host is valid
testing + better docs
check oauth client, streamline!?
add autocomplete for API commands
profile delete and rename
history scope of profile name
support for urlencoded in post/put body -> set correct mime type
What's the difference to the client provided by oauth gem?
problem with oauth cli client provided with the gem is the lack of post request with body content as well as easy usage with repl to have proper CLI options
Are there other clients of similar manner?
Yes: github.com/marcel/twurl Very similar but Twitter specific. I whish I'd spot this project earlier ;-)
