How do you authorize the user to access my account all the time?
I have to authorize the user every time I log in to twitter.
Any answers are welcome!!

Nvm. Solved this using auth 1.0a

When I do User.last.twitter_accounts, I get this:
=> #]>
Why are the name and username nil?
Any advice is hugely appreciated :)

<ActiveRecord::Associations::CollectionProxy [#<TwitterAccount id: 1, user_id: 3, name: nil, username: nil, image: nil, token: [FILTERED]
I get this result by the way

I had the same issue. You need to request Elevated access for the Twitter API via the developer dashboard

Thanks a ton! Will try this

On Rails 7 - to get my "Connect a Twitter Account" button to work correctly, I needed to use the following:

<%= button_to "Connect a Twitter account", "/auth/twitter/", method: :post, :data => { turbo: "false" }, class: "btn btn-primary"%>

I also noticed that on my Disconnect button, the confirm "Are you sure?", would not show. I'm guessing it has to do with the button_to and turbo_confirm or something? If anyone figures this out, would love a reply.

For the disconnect button on Rails 7, I used this and it's working correctly with the confirm now. Hope it helps!

<%= link_to "Disconnect", twitter_account, data: { turbo_method: :delete, turbo_confirm: 'Are you sure?' }, class: "btn btn-danger" %>

Got it to work using this
<%= button_to "Disconnect", twitter_account, method: :delete, form: { data: { turbo_confirm: 'Are you sure?' } }, class:"btn btn-outline-danger" %>. Source is stackoverflow but unfortunately links cannot be added to the comment section so will just copy over the explanation.

`Because you are using Turbo, you need to add the data-turbo-confirm to the form itself, unlike in rails-ujs. Which you would add it to the button.

Keep in mind button_to generated a form unlike link_to`

Thanks so much Alex. You really saved me a lot of time.

Hello geeks
Can someone help me with this episode? I am getting this error. I am new
undefined method `twitter_accounts' for #

Hey I keep getting routing error using omniauth 2.1.1

No route matches [GET] "/auth/twitter"

Reply

solved it link_to on index.html.erb has to be button.to for the route to be found by omniauth 2.1.1

That's awesome news! Thanks for the update. Keeping the content current is so important, especially when it comes to frameworks like Omniauth. Excited to check it out!

For all of us thing to find out why we won't get that popup confirmation,
try adding this at the beginning of index.html.erb:
<%= javascript_include_tag "turbo", type: "module" %>

and change the button code to this:
<%= button_to "Disconnect", twitter_account, method: :delete, data: { turbo_confirm: "Are you sure?" }, class: "btn btn-outline-danger" %>

That will break the Connect Twitter button so you would also need to replace it with (as Alex Lutz noticed earlier):
<%= button_to "Connect Twitter", "/auth/twitter", method: :post, data: { turbo: "false" }, class: "btn btn-primary" %>
