The application is currently in development as I take a five minute break to write this, and I thought I would share a handy shortcut for developing your own SecureSocial apps on your local box.
If you’re using, for example, Twitter to provide your OAuth service then you’ll need to provide a callback URL. Since you’re on your local computer, which doesn’t necessarily have its own external IP address then there are a couple of hacks you can use. One involves changing your hosts file to resolve an external URL to your local server.
Another, far easier – and lazier – method, is to use a URL shortener to provide the same situation. bit.ly doesn’t seem to allow request parameters, but goo.gl does. Simply create a shortened URL for http://localhost:9000/securesocial.securesocial/authenticate?type=twitter (adjust as necessary for port, OAuth provider, etc) and use that as the callback address in the application your register with the OAuth provider.
