Adds OAuth-based authentication to the Spring Security plugin using the OAuth plugin. This plugin provides an OAuth realm that can easily be integrated into existing applications and a host of utility functions to make things like "log in with Twitter" almost trivial.


Add the following to your grails-app/conf/BuildConfig

plugins {
	// …
	// last stable version is 2.0.2
	compile ':spring-security-oauth:2.0.2'
	// 2.1 is under development
	// compile ':spring-security-oauth:2.1.0-SNAPSHOT'
	compile ':spring-security-oauth-facebook:0.1'
	// …
