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.
oauth_app(appname, key, secret = NULL)
- 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.
- consumer key (equivalent to a user name)
- consumer secret. This is equivalent to a
password and should not be stored in publicly visible
code. As a convenient shortcut, if
NULL, we'll look in the environment variable
linkedin_app <- oauth_app("linkedin", key = "outmkw3859gy") github_app <- oauth_app("github", "56b637a5baffac62cad9")
