How to get twitter oauth callback url returned to activity (on Android) when it's a callback url starting with http - or alternatively: how to register a callback url that doesn't start with http?
I want to use signpost/OAuth with Twitter in my native Android app so that I have an activity handling the callback url (and user doesn't need to enter the pin or the pin doesn't need to be screen scraped). I found many posts with samples like: Oauth Callback not found after allowing the app on Twitter. http://dev.bostone.us/2009/07/16/android-oauth-twitter-updates/#idc-cover http://code.google.com/p/agirardello/ and they all use a callback url that doesn't start with http. For example: <data android:scheme="myapp" android:host="twitt"></data> But how to register a callback url in the twitter app settings? I'm always getting 'invalid url format' when submitting the app settings form. I suppose, since I am in the browser already when the twitter site calls the callback url, I cannot just use http as the scheme (I tried to use http://www.mydomain.com and set http as the scheme and www.mydomain.com as the host). At least in my test, I won't be redirected to the app but remain in the browser and the callback url is opened in the browser. (I also cleared the defaults of the browser app before.) <data android:scheme="http" android:host="www.mydomain.com"></data> -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
