Performing HTTP client requests with OAuth2 authentication
Assuming you have an access token, you can setup an
to be authenticated with OAuth2 using this code:
require "http/client" require "oauth2" # Here we use a bearer token, but it could be a mac token. We also set the # expires in value to 172,800 seconds, or 48 hours access_token = OAuth2::AccessToken::Bearer.new("some_access_token", 172_800) # Create an HTTP::Client client = HTTP::Client.new("api.example.com", tls: true) # Prepare it for using OAuth2 authentication access_token.authenticate(client) # Execute requests as usual: they will be authenticated client.get("/some_path")
This is implemented with
HTTP::Client#before_request to add an authorization
header to every request.
Obtaining access tokens
OAuth2::Client for an example.
