Content with Style: LinkedIn and Zend_Oauth

      Comments Off on Content with Style: LinkedIn and Zend_Oauth

New from the Content with Style blog today there’s a quick tutorial showing how to connect an application to LinkedIn with the Zend_Ouath component.

Matthias has made look into Linkedin and OAuth for a bit. This example was a very interesting read, but I think it’s overcomplicating things slightly. That’s why I want to show a very simple example inspired by what we’ve done for the brand new CwS Author pages.

His example sets up a few options, some for callbacks and others for general settings, and makes a new Zend_Oauth_Consumer object to pull in and connect the LinkedIn API to your application. He also includes a sample client that uses this connection to fetch the current status for the user in question.
