#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.

    Closing since this is the way it works now.
