Enabling Twitter/Identica OAuth in psyced
For you to be able to use these functions you need register your server with them. Works like this:
- Go to https://twitter.com/apps
- We recommend using your psyc: server uniform as the app name to avoid collisions with other PSYC gateways.
- Choose app type "browser".
- Put something into callback url - it will not be used.
- Access type: read/write
You will be given a key and a secret for your application to publish on Twitter/Identica. In the case of Twitter, you need to put the following #define's into local.h
#define TWITTER_KEY "<whateverKey>" #define TWITTER_SECRET "<whateverSecret>"
Now you are ready to post via OAuth. See Microblogging for the details.
