Zend Developer Zone:
Getting an OAuth Access Token from the Command Line
June 09, 2011 @ 11:04:29

Tim Lytle has written up a new tutorial for the Zend Developer Zone talking about OAuth and making one of the more difficult parts - getting an access token - a bit simpler using a command-line application.

OAuth is great - there's no need to save users' passwords, it's - in theory - a consistent way to interact with other services, and it's hopefully something that your users are familiar and comfortable using. But if you're not just interacting with your users' accounts - for example, your application uses a single account on a service to broadcast messages, or analyze data - getting or renewing the access token can be painful.

He illustrates the problem with an example connecting to Twitter and even points out a script that makes bridging this gap simpler. Unfortunately, it's not exactly what he needed, so he reworked the idea with a call to the Twitter API using a Zend_Oauth_Consumer and a custom callback. The script is then set up with some command line options for inputting the key and secret information. Also included is functionality letting you define a configuration file. You can see the final result here on github.
