OmniAuth Dropbox

This gem is an OmniAuth 1.0 Strategy for the Dropbox API

It supports version 1 of the Dropbox API which uses OAuth 1.0a.


Add the strategy to your Gemfile alongside omniauth:

gem 'omniauth'
gem 'omniauth-dropbox'

Then integrate the strategy into your middleware:

use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :dropbox, ENV['DROPBOX_KEY'], ENV['DROPBOX_SECRET']

You will have to put in your consumer key and secret (Dropbox refers to them as App Key and App Secret).

For additional information, refer to the OmniAuth wiki.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
