Resolving Twitter Documentation and OAuth Authorization Issues in Xano
In this meeting, the State Changers discuss a problem related to using Twitter's APIs and implementing OAuth1 securely. The key discussion revolves around OAuth1 vs OAuth2 and troubleshooting an API integration issue.
Participant 'Mike' is struggling to work through the Twitter documentation ever since Elon Musk took over due to deprecated functions. The main issue they face is an "unauthorized 401" error when trying to run their code using Zano and OAuth1 to authenticate Twitter's API.
Upon checking his code, the State Changers observe that Mike's authorization header looks odd which might be the source of the problem. Issues regarding timestamp formatting (from milliseconds to seconds) were also identified as a potential cause.
The State Changers suggest that OAuth2 might be a better choice as it is more secure and generally better maintained. They offer to guide Mike in future sessions on using OAuth2.
Key tools mentioned in this discussion are Zano, OAuth1, and OAuth2. The team worked collectively to debug and problem-solve the issues with Mike's code. Future sessions will potentially focus on transitioning from OAuth1 to OAuth2.
