Why use Scribe?

Dead Simple

Who said OAuth was difficult? Configuring scribe is so easy your grandma can do it! check it out:

OAuthService service = new ServiceBuilder()

That single line (added newlines for readability) is the only thing you need to configure scribe with LinkedIn's OAuth API for example.


Hit Scribe as hard and with many threads as you like.

Supports all major 1.0a and 2.0 OAuth APIs out-of-the-box

  • Google

  • Facebook

  • Yahoo

  • LinkedIn

  • Twitter

  • Foursquare

  • Evernote

  • Vimeo

  • Windows Live

  • and many more! check the examples folder

Small and modular

Scribe's code is small (about 1k LOC) and simple to understand. No smart-ass or "clever" hacks here.


Works out of the box with android(TM) applications.

Stable & bulletproof

Good test coverage to keep you safe from harm.

When something bad actually happens, Scribe's meaningful error messages will tell you exactly what went wrong, when and where.

Pull it from Maven!

You can pull scribe from my maven repository, just add these to your pom.xml file:

<!-- repository -->

<!-- dependency -->

Getting started in less than 2 minutes

Check the Getting Started page and start rocking! Please Read the FAQ before creating an issue :)

Also, remember to read the fantastic tutorial that @akoskm wrote to easily integrate a server side app with an API (twitter in this case).


Feel free to drop me an email, but there's already a StackOverflow tag for scribe you should use. I'm subscribed to it so I'll pick the question immediately.
