Welcome to the home of ScribeJava, the simple OAuth client Java lib!

Why use ScribeJava?

Dead Simple

Who said OAuth/OAuth2 was difficult? Configuring ScribeJava is so easy your grandma can do it! check it out:

OAuthService service = new ServiceBuilder(YOUR_CLIENT_ID)

That single line (added newlines for readability) is the only thing you need to configure ScribeJava with LinkedIn's OAuth API for example.

Working executable examples are here Common usage: example


Hit ScribeJava as hard and with many threads as you like.

Java 7 compatible

That's it. You can use it in old environments and in android apps. note: To compile from sources you will need Java 9 or newer

Async and other HTTP clients

ScribeJava support out-of-box several HTTP clients:

  • ning async http client 1.9.x (maven module scribejava-httpclient-ning) example
  • Async Http Client asynchttpclient 2.x (maven module scribejava-httpclient-ahc) example
  • OkHttp (maven module scribejava-httpclient-okhttp) example
  • Apache HttpComponents HttpClient (maven module scribejava-httpclient-apache) example
  • Armeria HTTP client (required >= java 8) example
  • any externally created HTTP client example

just add corresponding maven modules to your pom

Supports many flows and additional features

Supports all (50+) major 1.0a and 2.0 OAuth APIs out-of-the-box

Small and modular

ScribeJava's code is small (about 1k LOC) and simple to understand. No smart-ass or "clever" hacks here. You can use only 'core' or 'with apis' maven modules


Works out of the box with android(TM) applications.

Stable & bulletproof

Good test coverage to keep you safe from harm.

When something bad actually happens, ScribeJava's meaningful error messages will tell you exactly what went wrong, when and where.

Pull it from Maven Central!

You can pull ScribeJava from the central maven repository, just add these to your pom.xml file:


And in case you need just core classes (that's it, without any external API (FB, VK, GitHub, Google etc) specific code), you could pull just 'core' artifact.


How can I help ScribeJava

First of all, Pull Requests are welcome, the second option is donations.

When will ScribeJava support XXX (new RFC, custom functionality, new API etc.)

When you will send the pull request. That's the way for a majority of changes here. Or you can ask someone to make the paid job for you. In some cases, when I'm interested in changes (technically or financially), I can implement the request myself.

Paid consulting

If you or your business depends on the Scribejava and you need any specific improvement or new feature not currently implemented in the Scribejava, consider contacting me about a paid job.
