Developers

Can my website or app work with MFBStaging?
Yes.  MFBStaging uses the oAuth2 protocol, which allows a user to grant permissions for a 3rd party site to perform various actions on MFBStaging without revealing their username or password to the 3rd party site.  (This is the same way that MFBStaging can work with Dropbox or Google Drive without getting your passwords to those services).  See the web service wiki for more information, or contact us; we're always happy to help.  When you're ready to get started, visit our developer page to get an oAuth client set up.
