I'm currently developing a Cascades application but have 1 feature that requires oauth & i'm using a webview to do that, i've got everything working on a computer but not sure how to implement on the device

 

the issue is the redirect_uri, currently set to ripples http://localhost:9910

 

how do i get or find a localhost equvalent for when its actually running on the device, not in chrome, i dont want to have to run a web service for this

Please use plain text.

I'm assuming you just need to check the webview out

 

Go to any website (try one you use seldom - its annoying - I dunno, msbnc)

 

Now click on the Ripple icon in Chrome

 

At the bottom click on Start ripple services

 

This starts up a web server on 9910

 

Now - told you - complicated

 

I hope you're using Win7

 

Take your HTML directory (e.g. harry) and COPY it to C:\Users\<you>\RippleSites

 

Final steps

 

Go to http://localhost:9910/harry/index.html (replace harry with wherever you put it)

 

The DOS box you have open should now produce some output (this is all OK providing index.html gets read)

 

OK - done - Click the Ripple icon again - start Ripple

 

Yippee!

 

First time around is hard - then its easy as all you have to do next time is start services, go to a 9910 and switch to Ripple (nice + easy)

 

As is usual with BB documentation is the least reliable method to get anything working

 

I wish they'd employ some monkeys to write Shakespeare (old quote)

 

I know the dox are bad and easy to fix - I am an independant and abhor low quality (I once documented Wing Commander 4 - boring or what?)

Re: localhost

i've got it working with ripple in chrome, my question was since ripple is initiating the localhost.  how do i get a localhost on the actual device.  the reason for this is, oauth gives me a key & attaches it to the redirect url (oAuth requires it to be http://localhost:XXXX)

 

in my code i set the redirect_uri to http://localhost:9910/oAuth/authtest.html

 

oauth returns http://localhost:9910/oAuth/authtest.html?code=oAuthToken

 

basically the issue is im sure how to have my uri navigate to the html file while on the device
