Blogger Google Data support?

OK. So I have recently been working to support the new Blogger / Google logins to post to Blogger blogs. I was easily able to register my app to remove the warning on the login page, but they offer no support of how to actually ‘sign’ the request to keep them secure.

I have posted to both the Blogger Data API Group and the Google Accounts API Group but it seems like I am dealing with some kind of ‘dark art’.

I think it’s a good idea to make connection for secure for people, but they are about to ‘force’ their bloggers to the new system, yet offer no support on how application developers like myself are to support this new ‘secureness’.

Even the Zend GData framework, which is available does not appear to handle the secure method required. I also cannot use this without upgrading my PHP and installing some more stuff. But there is no need, as PHP and Curl can do the job required just fine.

For those who may be able to help, here are the docs for the signing I am on about. But there’s just not enough info there on how to do it.

When I get this working, I’ll be happy to share how I did it.

Anyone got any ideas? I have the insecure method working fine.

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
