  • Hi Ben,

    Sorry for delayed response! Yes, it should be possible to consume OAuth 2.0 services such as Google APIs using Casablanca's http_client. 

    Obviously, this isn't going to be as convenient as using a higher-level library (such as DotNetOpenAuth for .NET), but it should be possible. We might consider adding a higher-level API in the future.

    As to why you're not getting the access_token back -- I suspect your request might be malformed. To troubleshoot this, I would create a simple request using a browser or a web debugger such as Fiddler, and see if that works. Next, do the same using http_client and see if there is a difference.
