#41 Save OAuth token instead of password


If the OAuth tokens have a reasonable expiration time, it would be nice to have NixNote save the OAuth token(s) instead of my password, and only prompt for the password if it cannot renew / extend the OAuth token. That would provide a nicer balance between convenience and security, IMO.


  • Personally, I don't like doing it because it is more complicated & I'm lazy. :-)

    However, Evernote has taken your side & is forcing this. I think I have until November to get this done or Nixnote won't be able to synchronize.

  • The next beta release will have this ability and I'll be asking for volunteers to test it. I'll be posting an announcement on the message boards & via the mailing list, but Evernote needs to correct a problem with OAuth & shared notebooks first.
