FoursquareProvider for SecureSocial and PlayFramework

Last week­end I dis­cov­ered that I needed a Foursquare Provider for the pop­u­lar Play Frame­work Plu­gin Secure Social — so I wrote one!

The biggest chal­lenge was that it is writ­ten in Scala, so I had to use my min­i­mal Scala skills.  It wasn’t that hard, as I was able to use another Oauth2 Provider as a tem­plate, and Jorge Aliss (@jaliss) the Secure Social author was help­ful as well.

So, right now I have sub­mit­ted the pull request on Github:  https://​github​.com/​j​a​l​i​s​s​/​s​e​c​u​r​e​s​o​c​i​a​l​/​p​u​l​l​/​125

UPDATE Feb. 8, 2013:  Jorge has merged (my updated) pull request, so both the Foursquare and XING Providers are on the mas­ter branch of Secure Social, and should be included in the impend­ing Play! 2.1 update.
