    Anders,

    I had a quick look at the docs page and did not see pinterest as a service. Is it planned or in a branch somewhere?

    Regards

    Ismail

    Hi Ismail,

    There is currently no support for Pinterest, so there is no code, branches or docs somewhere that you haven't found yet.

    I hadn't any plans for adding support for Pinterest, but since a few users now have asked for this, I just tried implementing the code for authentication (most of the code can be reused from my implementation for other OAuth 2 services) and setting up an authentication page.

    Unfortunately Pinterest seems to have an issue with their developer site at the moment, which means I get an "internal server error" from their server when trying to save my Pinterest app. So for now I'm stuck here.

    Implementing the various endpoints and methods of the Pinterest API will probably take a bit longer. I'm not sure that I have the time at the moment to fully support another service, but I can add Pinterest as another experimental project. If there are any specific parts of the API that you need, I can probably also look a bit into that ;)

    Anders,

    With pinterest when you create app you have to get it approved that may be the issue. I am looking to update my stats app so its getting likes for a given user.

    Regards

    Ismail

    Hi again,

    I have now added Pinterest as an experimental project to the Visual Studio solution. Experimental basically means that I don't have the time to fully support it at the moment (including thoroughly testing and documenting the code properly).

    I have also added a bit of documentation at the Skybrud.Social website ;)

    As the Pinterest has it's own project (and therefore also it's own DLL), you can download the DLL from my Dropbox folder. The DLL should work fine along v0.9.4.1 of Skybrud.Social. I haven't tested it against older versions.

    The DLL supports authentication (yet to be documented) and the users endpoint (for getting information about a given user - including statistics about that user).

    Let me know how this works out for you ;)

    Hi Anders,

    Apologies for reviving a couple old month post!

    Been using your skybrud package and have to say thank you very much for the effort you have put in to it!

    I'm using your experimental pinterest package as well now and attempting to use it to pull through pins from the pinterest site.

    As I can see you have said that currently only the user endpoint is supported - Is there any progress on the other endpoints or perhaps I can help with this? (I have yet to use the source, just using the dropbox dll provided).

    Thanks

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    I have added to issues on GitHub so you can follow the progress:

    https://github.com/abjerner/Skybrud.Social.Pinterest/issues/1 https://github.com/abjerner/Skybrud.Social.Pinterest/issues/2

    Not making any promises, but I may have some time to look at it over the weekend. I don't use the Pinterest part myself, but generally look into new stuff if people request it ;)

    Hi Anders,

    Thats brilliant thank you. I can see the commit you have performed so will give it a pull and a tryout :)

    Thank you

    --EDIT--

    Had a play with the new pinterest pin features and working superbly, Thank you anders.

    I did end up adding in the binds for pin images (Original). Involved two new files to grab these from the API Response.

    Would you like me to pull request these in for you?

    They are relatively generalised.

    Thanks
