Anyone have a simple step by step guide to setting up an app and getting OAuth working

Unfortunately the information around using OAuth, setting up your apps
and testing with Google Playground are not well written and impossible
to follow as a simple guide.

I’ve developed a really simple C# app that makes an application/xml
content type request to get expense details back in XML format so that
I can do my P11d - unfortunately with API v2 the old method of
authentication won’t work and I need to mess around with OAUTH.

Really just looking for a simple step by step guide with screenshots
explaining how to set it up so that I can get the appropriate
authentication token to allow my C# app to authenticate.

Thanks in advance

Hi Andrew

I’ve been doing a .NET API for FreeAgent, but I’ve been hitting a few
snags (see other posts).

However, for read only, it should work, and the oauth bit DOES work.

It uses RestSharp to do the communication, and at the moment, the
oauth bits (keys, token refresh etc) work, as does contacts. I’ve
mapped most of the models, but not got to the get/post/put/delete for
anything more then contacts, company and project.

If you just needed read-only on some stuff, it wouldn’t be hard to
show-horn it in. I’m trying to get read/write/list/delete/update all
working at the same time.

Give me a yell if you get it working. I’m focused on getting it going
in MonoTouch, but I work on it in both VS2010 at work, and MonoDevelop
at home.
