NAME

Tinder::API - Unofficial internal Tinder's API calls.

SYNOPSIS

        C<< my $API= new Tinder::API('facebookAuthToken',"Id"); >>

DESCRIPTION

This module was orginally the first Perl library to interract with Tinder app. As you may know, Tinder uses a series of non encrypted API calls in order to make the client-server possible. Those calls are greatly documented in -https://gist.github.com/rtt/10403467 repo. You can use Fiddler , install the trust certificate on your mobile device and use your Fiddler sniffer as a proxy for all traffic. Then you will get more or less the same pattern as the repo above. In the current library, I aim to provide an easy access to the calls. Please note that you will need a FaceBook Authentication Token for Tinder::API to work! You can get it by going on -https://www.facebook.com/dialog/oauth?client_id=464891386855067&redirect_uri=https://www.facebook.com/connect/login_success.html&scope=basic_info,email,public_profile,user_about_me,user_activities,user_birthday,user_education_history,user_friends,user_interests,user_likes,user_location,user_photos,user_relationship_details&response_type=token.
