Advanced use of kQOAuth

Posted by kypeli

In my previous post I introduced the kQOAuth library and how to use its convenient authorization process. I believe this is what 90% of the users want to do anyway, but I also wanted to write about the rest of the features the library provides so that you can be in total control of what is going on. Also, if you are interested in custom reply parameters sent by the service, you need to connect to some signals to retrieve them.

Introducing kQOAuth – Easy and Powerful OAuth library for Qt

Posted by kypeli

kQOAuth is a powerful yet easy way to integrate OAuth authentication to your Qt application. kQOAuth handles OAuth request signing, request submitting and reply parsing for you. It also provides an easy way to retrieve user authorization to protected resources with a built in HTTP server.

This also means that the library works fully asynchronously. kQOAuth is licensed under the LGPL license. You can read more about kQOAuth usage in my next post: Advanced use of kQOAuth. There is now also an official web page for kQOAuth: If you are unfamiliar with OAuth, it is worth first checking out some tutorials:
