Account details: After adding a Twitter acct, remove password field

Reported by Ron DeVera | June 14th, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | in Version 0.10

When creating a Twitter account via OAuth, Spaz receives an auth token for that account, and no longer needs the plaintext password that the user provided. The account details popbox no longer needs to display the password (in bulleted form), so:

  1. Remove the password field, leaving only the username field.
  2. Remove the plaintext password from the preferences file.

This only affects Twitter accounts (thanks to Spaz's OAuth switch).

    • Assigned user changed from “Ron DeVera” to “Ed Finkler”

    1: Hid the password field when editing a Twitter account; left it visible in all other cases.

    2: Ed, I'm assigning this over to you since you had an idea of where to find the plaintext password in the prefs file. (It may just be leftover in my local prefs from previous builds.)

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    I actually looked for this in my own console output, and I'm 99% sure now it was just a remnant from old prefs, because I didn't have mine anywhere. So I think you can just blow away your old prefs file (or just edit it) and it won't show up anymore.

    I'll resolve this now.
