> cordova-plugin-inappbrowser support for custom URL schemes, as needed for 
> oAuth
> -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-14013
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-14013
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: cordova-plugin-inappbrowser
>    Affects Versions: cordova@7.0.0
>            Reporter: Steve Podell
>            Priority: Major
>   Original Estimate: 72h
>  Remaining Estimate: 72h
> A very common usage of the inappbrowser is to open a URL to the apps server, 
> as part of the oAuth flow.  After a secure token is created, the final step 
> in the oAuth flow is to redirect back to the Cordova app, to proceed as 
> authenticated.  At the WeVote open source project we use this to authenticate 
> with Twitter and Facebook, other projects want to authenticate with Google, 
> Whatsapp, Skype, etc. 
> There is a package for React Native react-native-oauth that does this, and I 
> was able to get oAuth working for iOS with 
> cordova-plugin-safariviewcontroller, but there is nothing that is stable, 
> maintained, and working that is equivalent for Android.
> A pull request will follow that uses whitelisted schemes to allow the oAuth 
> redirect to complete through the InAppBrowser.  It is a fairly simple code 
> change, that leads to a simple end user implementation, that should be widely 
> appreciated (based on years of mostly unfulfilled Stack Overflow chatter.)
> This PR builds on  
> [https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser/pull/99] and 
> [https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser/pull/261] and builds 
> on a good suggestion from *[NGumby|https://github.com/NGumby]* and comments 
> about viability from *[infil00p|https://github.com/infil00p]*
