Getting user's authorization

Before being able to call Tumblr's API you will need to register an application to obtain a Consumer Key and Secret Key. You can register your application here (you will need a Tumblr account): http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/apps

Tumblr allows you to invoke a few methods by using just the application keys however, if you want to access the full functionality (like posting, user dashboard, etc.) you will have to request user's authorization by going through the OAuth flow. Tumblr# provides a handy class called OAuthClient that helps with this process.

Please refer to the following sections for examples on how to perform authorization:
