Hey everyone, I'm one of the collaborators on the MGTwitterEngine project for Mac and iPhone developers. We've finished our initial implementation of OAuth and XAuth support within MGTwitterEngine. This uses the OAuthConsumer framework to handle the business end of OAuth, meaning that there are only a couple new MGTwitterEngine APIs you need to use (and we've got a wiki guide for migrating to OAuth). We expect most users of the framework to want to use XAuth to obtain an access token, so we have a convenience API for handling that (of course, you'll need to obtain the opt-in from Twitter). After getting XAuth access, it shouldn't take more than a half hour to get set up to obtain your access token and start sending requests.
We're also planning on releasing a new version of MGTwitterEngine with support for some new APIs and bug fixes, as well as OAuth. We're hoping to get this out by WWDC, or at least before the OAuth deadline. We're aware of the buffer needed for App Store approval, so we'll be trying to finish this up ASAP. You can grab the code from the project page here: http://github.com/mattgemmell/MGTwitterEngine/ You can read the migration guide here: http://wiki.github.com/mattgemmell/MGTwitterEngine/migrating-from-basic-auth-to-oauthxauth Feedback is always welcome. If you have any issues, please file them in the project issue tracker here: http://github.com/mattgemmell/MGTwitterEngine/issues Now stop using basic auth already. Thanks, Steve
