- Client ID
- Client Secret
- Where to find them
What this page covers:
- How to create/set up your app
- What information you need from your app to run the keymaker
Create Github App¶
Create a Github application. There is only one thing you are required to set, which is the callback URL.
Set the callback URL to
http://localhost:8000 (no HTTPS!).
Once you create your app, you should see a Client ID and a Client Secret near the top of the page. These two pieces of information are the API keys that the Keymaker needs to start the OAuth process.
Get Client ID and Client Secret¶
Get your application's Client ID and Client Secret.
The eaiest way to set these for embarcadero mind machine
is to use environment variables. You can set the
CLIENT_SECRET variables to
their respective values when you run embarcadero
mind machine scripts:
$ CLIENT_ID="XXX" CLIENT_SECRET="XXXXX" \ python my_github_flock.py
The Keymaker can be configured to obtain the client API keys from these environment variables.
