I have some code that looks like this:
user.google.portable_contacts.all </pre>As long as user.google is a valid token provided by oauth you will get back a list of the user's contacts from gmail. That is unless you have the Fireeagle gem included in your application. In that case you will spend the night swearing like a sailor and then weeping openly like a little girl. If you include fireeagle 0.8.0.1 in your project and make that call you will get an error like this:
ActionView::TemplateError (wrong number of arguments (1 for 0)) on line #7 of /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/muck-invites-0.1.12/app/views/invites/_gmail_oauth.erb: /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/oauth-0.4.0/lib/oauth/consumer.rb:154:in `create_http' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/oauth-0.4.0/lib/oauth/consumer.rb:154:in `request' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/oauth-0.4.0/lib/oauth/tokens/consumer_token.rb:25:in `request' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/oauth-0.4.0/lib/oauth/tokens/access_token.rb:11:in `request' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/oauth-0.4.0/lib/oauth/tokens/access_token.rb:24:in `get' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/portablecontacts-0.1.0/lib/portable_contacts.rb:55:in `get' /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/portablecontacts-0.1.0/lib/portable_contacts.rb:43:in `all' /Users/jbasdf/projects/muck-oauth/app/helpers/muck_oauth_helper.rb:32:in `gmail_contacts' /Users/jbasdf/projects/muck-oauth/app/helpers/muck_oauth_helper.rb:16:in `gmail_contacts_as_array' </pre>Naturally you will follow the stack trace down to the call in the oauth gem to create_http. Then you will look at the call to it and everything will look fine. The oauth gem works for everyone else. Why does it not work? WTF? Stupid code. I should have dropped out of engineering and become a business major. Seriously WTF? This code is never even called. What the hell!!!!! Then you will remember that ruby is the best, most awesome language ever and you can replace methods dynamically on the fly, and you will figure out that the create_http method being called is not the one in the file you are looking at. Next you get to figure out what method is being called. It took a lot of colorful language, some lost hair, my wife almost left me, but by luck I found it:
# FireEagle addition to theDeath to the bastard that wrote that code. Here's what the code inside oauth looks like:
OAuth::Consumerclass class OAuth::Consumer alias_method :create_http_with_verify, :create_http # Monkey patch to silence the SSL warnings def create_http_without_verify #:nodoc: http_object = create_http_with_verify http_object.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE if uri.scheme=="https" http_object end alias_method :create_http, :create_http_without_verify end </pre>
# Instantiates the http object def create_http(_url = nil) if _url.nil? || _url =~ /^\// our_uri = URI.parse(site) else our_uri = URI.parse(_url) end if proxy.nil? http_object = Net::HTTP.new(our_uri.host, our_uri.port) else proxy_uri = proxy.is_a?(URI) ? proxy : URI.parse(proxy) http_object = Net::HTTP.new(our_uri.host, our_uri.port, proxy_uri.host, proxy_uri.port, proxy_uri.user, proxy_uri.password) end http_object.use_ssl = (our_uri.scheme == 'https') if @options[:ca_file] || CA_FILE http_object.ca_file = @options[:ca_file] || CA_FILE http_object.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER http_object.verify_depth = 5 else http_object.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE end http_object end </pre>Notice that the new method in the oauth gem takes optional parameters while the monkey patched version doesn't? MonkeyPatching causes me to use words that destroy my eternal salvation. Stop it. I couldn't figure out why no one else has had this problem. Maybe someone has but it was the combination of gems I was playing with that caused the problem. I dropped fireeagle from the project and everything magically started working.
