Facebook has shipped a prototype implementation of the emerging OAuth WRAP specification on FriendFeed. The company says any developers working with RESTful APIs will want to check it out. Facebook’s David Recordon says:
While Facebook Connect and our APIs do not use OAuth today, we’ve been working over the past month to share what we’ve learned with the broader community and shape both the new OAuth WRAP specification and OAuth’s IETF standardization effort. We plan to continue developing OAuth WRAP within the community and incorporate it directly into Facebook Connect next year.
FriendFeed offers OAuth WRAP the following endpoints:
- Authorize URL: https://friendfeed.com/account/wrap/authorize
- Access Token URL: https://friendfeed.com/account/wrap/access_token
Facebook says it wants your feedback on OAUth WRAP in its current form. There are more details about it here.
