A local callback server for oAuth web-flow.


clavem allows you to handle a full oAuth authentication flow directly from the console.

Simply instantiate the authorizer and run the authorize method with the URL:

require "clavem"

# Initialize your oAuth access.

authorizer =

# Get the token
# You can also handle callback parameter by yourself.
# url += "?oauth_callback=" + authorizer.callback_url
# authorizer.authorize(url, false)

if authorizer.succeeded? then
  access_token = authorizer.token

  # Go on!
  # Authorization denied or failed

Alternatively, you can also specify a timeout and a block to the constructor to customizer the response handling.

See the documentation for more information.

Use on jRuby

To use on jRuby, you need to install a gem with C extensions which must be compiled.

See jRuby documentation to see how to enabled extensions compilation.

Contributing to clavem

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet.
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it.
  • Fork the project.
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch.
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution.
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
