OAuth 1.0a Request Authorization for Node and Browser

Send OAuth request with your favorite HTTP client (request, jQuery.ajax...) or fetch)

Breaking change

  • v3.0.0
    • Crypto library changed to node's crypto
  • v2.0.0
    • A bug has been discovered in authorize. As it no longer mutate input, the input string no longer get escaped correctly per OAuth spec. To remedy this:
      • If you build POST body yourself, use the buildQueryString method instead of querystring.encode.
      • Otherwise, make sure that your parameters are encoded with percentEncode instead of encodeURIComponent. It is available at require('node-oauth-1.0a/src/utils').percentEncode.

Difference to oauth-1.0a

  • The code is broken down to multiple files and rewritten to a subset of ES6.
    • When node and evergreen browsers starts shipping full ES6 support it is expected that the code will change to full ES6.
  • Use libraries instead of shipping with some common algorithms.
  • Large parts of the API are made private
  • The public API should be compatible with some changes
    • The constructor must be called with new.
    • authorize and its inner methods no longer mutate input.
    • getHeader with the same signature as authorize is added. toHeader is deprecated
