    use WWW::Foursquare;

    # Create fs object
    my $fs = WWW::Foursquare->new(
        client_id     => 'client_id',
        client_secret => 'client_secret',
        redirect_uri  => 'redirect_uri',
    );

    # Set access_token
    my $access_token = 'XXXX';
    $fs->set_token($access_token);

    # Search users by name
    my $search_users = eval { $fs->users()->search(name => 'Pavel Vlasov') };

    if (not $@) {
    
        # work with result in Perl structure
        # print Dumper($search_users);
    }
    else {

        # process errors
        warn $@ if $@;
    }

DESCRIPTION ^

This wrapper help you send requests to Foursquare API and get result in easy way, OAuth is supported, quick integration with your current project. You can get more information about Foursquare API here: https://developer.foursquare.com/

INTEGRATION ^

How to connect your apps with foursquare via OAuth 2.0.

1. Create foursquare app:

https://foursquare.com/developers/apps

Get Client ID, Client Secret and Callback url

    my $fs = WWW::Foursquare->new(
        client_id     => 'client_id',
        client_secret => 'client_secret',
        redirect_uri  => 'redirect_uri',
    );

2. Get auth url for your apps:

    my $auth_url = $fs->get_auth_url();
    It looks like this: https://foursquare.com/oauth2/authenticate?client_id=client_id&redirect_uri=redirect_url&response_type=code

3. Have a user authorize your app.

Implement callback in your server.

- You click on auth url to go to autorize page. - If authorization is successful you will redirect to callback url and get code. - Then you use this code for getting access_token for Foursquare API

    http://your_server.com/callback&code=XXXXXXX
    my $code = ... # getting code here

Allow app to access to your account in foursquare

    my $access_token = $fs->get_access_token($code);

Background magic will send GET request to Foursquare API

4. Set access_token and using Foursquare API

    $fs->set_access_token($access_token);

For more information I would recommend you visit page https://developer.foursquare.com/overview/auth
