Sometimes manual is till better
A few days ago I wrote about a problem with an oAuth 2 authentication with an API. I sat down again yesterday because the “It doesn’t work” status is completely unacceptable.
This time I did not use an external oAuth library but implemented the whole thing by hand. I was wondering why there should be a library for oAuth because the authentication process is actually super easy. The code that I wrote is only slightly longer than the code with using the library.
I am already looking forward to when I can finally make progress on this small project.
