The OAuth module provides an
OAuth2::Client as specified
by RFC 6749.
NOTE To use
OAuth2, you must explicitly import it with
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.
