Developers Like Hypermedia, But They Don't Like Web Browsers

Leonard Richardson


Although desktop developers often have trouble consciously understanding RESTful concepts like "hypermedia as the engine of application state", this does not prevent them from intuitively understanding client-side tools based on these concepts. However, I encountered unexpected developer resistance after implementing a security protocol I and other web developers had thought uncontroversial: the most common mechanism for authorizing OAuth request tokens. This developer resistance has implications for many web services that share their authentication credentials with a corresponding website.
