    Google-tokens

    Tool for getting Google Cloud API OAuth tokens (refresh token)

    Why?

    Getting started

    1. Sign-up for a Google Cloud API account.
    2. Create an API project with an OAuth client id and add a 'Authorized redirect URI' of http://localhost:3000/callback.
    3. Obtain your client_id & client_secret from the credentials JSON file from the console

    Steps to generate .gtokens.json

    1. git clone https://github.com/bradoyler/google-tokens.git
    2. copy .gtokens.example.json to .gtokens.json
    3. fill in client_id and client_secret
    4. install & run
    npm install
    npm start
    
    1. follow prompt and copy refresh_token to your '.gtokens.json'

    API

    const GoogleTokens = require('google-tokens')
    const tokens = new GoogleTokens({ client_id, client_secret }) // OAuth credentials 
     
    const scope = [
      'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive',
      'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.readonly'
    ]
     
    tokens.authPrompt({ scope }) // required to pass API scope
      .then(tokens => console.log('OAuthTokens:', tokens))
      .catch(console.error)
    NOTE: you will only get a refresh_token the first-time you authenticate, but you can force to get new tokens by using the 'prompt' option, like so:
    tokens.authPrompt({ scope, prompt: 'consent' })
      .then(tokens => console.log('OAuthTokens:', tokens))

    TODOs:

    • add CLI support
    • allow for using shortnames (ie. auth/drive ) in scope
    • tests for all options

    Install
