Just being curious about the design of Google Reader API.
So, for edit actions (edit tag, remove tag, etc), we need a Token for in
the POST request.
In order to get the Token, we need to GET one providing the access_token
*I am just curious, why designing like this? *
The point is that access_token is already a door which the user allows us
to access, why set the second door? If I need something else (other than
access_token) to get the Token, I can understand this design (it is like a
different key for the 2nd door). But I need only access_token (the same key
for 2 doors), so I feel strange about it.
Why not just use access_token for edit actions, like for reading actions?
*This design gives a trouble for using the API. *
I have to regularly update my Token value and also take care of the
possible Token Invalid error. For edit actions, there are chances, I need
two requests to get an action done.
Anyone can explain it to me?
