The number of libraries, APIs available today to perform variegated tasks is profuse. Despite the abundance, sometimes alternatives are minimal and from these scarce resources, a solution that fits our specific needs are inconsequential. Lately working on
OAuth for a project based on OpenStreetMap, I could not find a convenient guide to understand and implement. Persevering on making it functional, I authorized my Android application the access to OSM servers.
By the use of Signpost, things became a little simpler. Use of Twitter API, Facebook API with signpost is all over the web. A novice developer of Android like me cannot go on without a little fretting. Further in this post, I am sharing the screenshots of the authentication and authorization.
The screenshots are self-describing. In an upcoming post, I will write a tutorial on how to execute this task.
