Yes, you can do this with epiTwitter (php) or twitter (ruby) gem, etc, etc, to do that. Once you develop the code via localhost, you then set it up on the Internet with your code to authorize with twitter, exchanging request tokens for access tokens, if you want different users to use your program, saving their tokens to session variables or a database for further calls.
You need to initialize your given library's oauth object with consumer key, consumer secret, and access token and access secret. Recently, for example, I was trying to figure out how to do a localhost setup with ruby twitter_oauth, but I couldn't figure it out. But I did get it working with the "twitter" ruby gem instead. I guess I will just use that gem instead of "twitter_oauth" gem. ~Patrick On Feb 3, 3:57 am, Ashim <ashimkap...@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear All, > > I wish to try Oauth on Mediawiki.
