rest-more 0.8.0 – 2011-11-29

Incompatible changes

  • [Facebook::RailsUtil] Some methods are renamed. For example,
    rc_facebook_write_rg_fbs is renamed to rc_facebook_write_fbs.
    All renamed methods are considered private, so we’re not listing
    them here.

  • [Facebook::RailsUtil] rc_facebook_storage_key is changed to:
    "rc_facebook_#{rc_facebook.app_id}", your users might need to
    login again in order to save the access_token into the new place.

Bugs fixes

  • [Github] Fixed usage of Oauth2Query.

  • [Facebook] Now we’re using POST in authorize! to exchange the
    access_token with the code instead of GET. If we’re using GET,
    we would run into a risk where a user might use the code to
    get other people’s access_token via the cache. Using POST would
    prevent this because POSTs are not cached.

  • [Facebook::RailsUtil] Fixed a serious bug. The bug would jump up if
    you’re using :write_session or :write_cookies or :write_handler
    with :auto_authorize, for example:
    rc_facebook_setup(:auto_authorize => true, :write_session => true)
    The problem is that Facebook::RailsUtil is not removing the invalid
    access_token stored in session or cookie, and yet it is considered
    authorized, making redirecting to Facebook and redirecting back
    update the access_token. rc_facebook_cleanup is introduced to
    all invalid access_tokens, which would get called once the user is
    redirected to Facebook, fixing this bug.


  • [Facebook] Now we use default_data to get the default data,
    instead of relying Defaults middleware.

  • [Facebook] Protected methods are changed to private.

  • [Flurry] app_info now accepts opts.

  • [Flurry] event_metrics is renamed to event_summary

  • [Flurry] event_metrics is now the API for accessing ‘eventMetrics/

  • [Flurry] If you didn’t pass dates, now default to for 7 days.

  • [Flurry] Instead of overriding query, defining default_query

  • [Linkedin+Twitter] Removed Defaults middleware because now we’re
    the data from Oauth1Client instead.

  • [Linkedin+Twitter] Removed oauth_token, oauth_token=,
    oauth_token_secret, and oauth_token_secret= because we’re using
    from Oauth1Client instead.

  • [Linkedin+Twitter] Removed set_token because it’s handled in
    Oauth1Client now.

  • [Twitter::RailsUtil] Now rc_twitter_setup accepts options like
    rc_facebook_setup: auto_authorize, ensure_authorized,
    write_session, write_cookies, write_handler, and

  • [Mixi] Removed Defaults middleware in favor of default_data.

  • [Facebook+Github+Mixi+Twitter] Added a me method for accessing
    user information.
