GetGlue is a leading social network for entertainment. Fans use GetGlue apps to check-in while consuming entertainment to share with friends. I wrote a Python script that enables MythTV to automatically check-in to GetGlue with the recording you are watching.
GetGlue provides an application programming interface (API) that uses OAuth for authorization.
NOTE/RANT: I don't think I'm supposed to share my oAuth developer keys. I don't know how the architects of oAuth expected us to deliver scripts. I guess they assume everything would be web based. Until someone tells me different I'm not going to release my oAuth keys. So, I guess you'll need to apply for developer keys and plug them in to my python script.
To obtain a GetGlue developer key, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, company name, app name, and OAuth callback (not needed for this), as well as a short description of the application.
Below are the high level steps to get this working and its accompanying video tutorial. These steps were performed on an Ubuntu 10.04 MythTV frontend PC.
sudo cp ~/.MythTVGetGlueCheckin /home/mythtv/.
sudo chown mythtv /home/mythtv/.MythTVGetGlueCheckin
sudo chgrp mythtv /home/mythtv/.MythTVGetGlueCheckin
