Create an OAuth application.

The OAuth framework doesn't match perfectly to use from R. Each user of the package for a particular OAuth enabled site must create their own application. See the demos for instructions on how to do this for linkedin, twitter, vimeo, facebook, github and google.

Usage
oauth_app(appname, key, secret = NULL)
Arguments
appname
name of the application. This is not used for OAuth, but is used to make it easier to identifier different applications and provide a consistent ways of storing secrets in environmental variables.
key
consumer key (equivalent to a user name)
secret
consumer secret. This is equivalent to a password and should not be stored in publicly visible code. As a convenient shortcut, if secret is NULL, we'll look in the environment variable APPNAME_CONSUMER_SECRET
