Module documentation for 0.2.1.0
Warning: This software is pre 1.0 and thus its API may change very dynamically while updating only minor versions. This package will follow the PVP once it reaches version 1.0.
OAuth is a popular protocol allowing servers to offer resources owned by some user to a series of authorized clients securely. For instance, OAuth lets Twitter provide access to a user's private tweets to the Twitter client registered on their phone.
oauthenticated is a Haskell library implementing OAuth protocols atop the
http-client HTTP client library extracted from
Network.OAuth offers simple functions for signing
Network.HTTP.Client.Requests along with tools for
provides a slightly more heavy-weight interface which manages the necessary state
and configuration using a monad transformer stack.
There's also an implementation of OAuth's three-legged credential acquisition
protocol built atop the
Network.OAuth API. This can be handled in both
conformant and old-style modes: conformant will reject server responses which
are not conformant with RFC 5849 (which builds atop community version OAuth
1.0a) while old-style better allows for less-than-compliant servers. See
Network.OAuth.Types.Params.Version for more details.
oauthenticated only supports OAuth 1.0 and is in alpha. OAuth 2.0
support is a potential goal, but it's unclear if it can be transparently
supported at a similar level of abstraction.
