18:46 trygvis what's happening?!
18:48 Jefffrey joined #rest
18:54 pdurbin I don't know!
18:55 graste joined #rest
18:55 trygvis you wanted some google auth code, but I don't remember what you really wanted to see
18:55 whartung I wasn't there, I think I missed it
18:55 trygvis I have the app here now if you want something in particular
18:55 trygvis doh!
18:55 whartung we have google auth code here, we use it for 2 factor
18:56 pdurbin trygvis: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse-android/issues/1
18:56 whartung Your first issue!
18:56 pdurbin heh
18:57 pdurbin to be honest, locally, I'm hard-coding my API token for now :)
18:57 pdurbin as I compile that android app
18:57 pdurbin good times
18:57 whartung :)
18:57 trygvis I don't know anything about Shibboleth other than this: https://xkcd.com/806/
18:58 pdurbin trygvis++
18:58 trygvis but I think we talked about how our app is using the phone's google account to authenticate against our server
18:58 pdurbin trygvis: yeah, I want that too
18:58 pdurbin of course, I'll need to support Google accounts on the server side too
18:58 pdurbin I'll need both.
18:59 whartung lol
18:59 pdurbin my work is never done
18:59 pdurbin but it's super neat to point my little android app at production data
19:00 whartung did I mention the hack for authenticating on mobile? was I talking to y'all about it?
19:00 whartung sniffing for a cookie?
19:00 pdurbin nope. well, maybe
19:00 pdurbin tell us again
19:01 whartung basically, you fire up a Web View Thing on your mobile app and send it to thelogin page.
19:01 whartung then, it watches the requests
19:01 whartung when it sees the auth cookie, it grabs it, and then closes the web view
19:01 whartung then it uses the cookie itself to authenticate against the app
19:01 whartung this lets the server control the use rlogin experience.
19:02 trygvis nice.
19:02 trygvis can you get the webview to use the phone's registered accounts?
19:03 whartung I don't know what that means.
19:04 pdurbin on android anyway you can add system-level accounts for google, twitter and probably others
19:04 pdurbin github
19:04 pdurbin those are the three I use
19:04 whartung yea I would't know about that
19:07 trygvis I think we can just conclude that auth is a PITA
19:07 trygvis data just want to be freee!
19:07 pdurbin now you're talkin'
19:07 whartung I post all my secrets on pastebin
19:07 pdurbin make them easier to remember
19:07 whartung si
19:07 whartung afk bbl
19:08 trygvis except that I don't think our clients would want their data to be free.. (we do accouting stuff)
19:14 pdurbin trygvis: speaking of pastebin, want to pastebin some of that sweet, sweet google auth code?
19:17 trygvis it's a lot of code, and it's all a bit all over. is there anything in particular you need?
19:23 trygvis we use google-api-client, 1.19.0 for the token checking
19:23 trygvis where "token" is a string from the mobile app
19:23 shrink0r joined #rest
19:24 trygvis when checking the token we get a email address back which we use to look up google account associations
19:33 pdurbin ok
19:34 pdurbin trygvis: I'm not quite ready for this anyway, hopefully I can ping you in the future about this.
19:35 trygvis sure
19:35 pdurbin trygvis: awesome. thanks

22:36 pdurbin whartung: I converted my local account to Shibboleth in production and it worked. \o/ /cc sfisque
22:36 pdurbin our usability person gave me a high five earlier when she converted hers :)
22:37 whartung so what exactly does that mean?
22:37 pdurbin just that Shibboleth is working in production
