Delibar has been released and it was awesome for the users who already had a Delicious account, but about a week ago the Delicious Yahoo team decided that new users should authenticate using only their Yahoo account.
After the release many asked for Yahoo accounts support; Delibar was not planned for that, but we thought: “no problem, we will add it in no time”, and we started coding it, but we hit a brick wall:
- there isn’t a LINE of documentation on how to use the new Yahoo OAuth authentication with Delicious (well, in fact there are three lines in a comment on the Delicious blog, but they are quite useless)
- Users needs to enable Delibar to get access to their bookmarks on Delicious, but when we tried to do that this was the result:
Yahoo is forcing us to use OAuth for users with Yahoo accounts, but they are encouraging users to not authorize ANY application using OAuth… We wrote an email to the Delicious support, let’s see if there is something that can be done.
We will keep you updated via Twitter or on our blog.
