    Passport-Dropbox-OAuth2

    Passport strategy for authenticating with Dropbox using the OAuth 2.0 API.

    This module lets you authenticate using Dropbox in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Dropbox authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

    Install

    $ npm install passport-dropbox-oauth2
    

    Usage

    Configure Strategy

    The Dropbox authentication strategy authenticates users using a Dropbox account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a API version, client ID, client secret, and callback URL. The library defaults to version 1 of Dropbox's API.

    passport.use(new DropboxOAuth2Strategy({
        apiVersion: '2',
        clientID: DROPBOX_CLIENT_ID,
        clientSecret: DROPBOX_CLIENT_SECRET,
        callbackURL: "https://www.example.net/auth/dropbox-oauth2/callback"
      },
      function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
        User.findOrCreate({ providerId: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
          return done(err, user);
        });
      }
    ));
    

    Authenticate Requests

    Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'dropbox-oauth2' strategy, to authenticate requests.

    For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

    app.get('/auth/dropbox',
      passport.authenticate('dropbox-oauth2'));
    
    app.get('/auth/dropbox/callback', 
      passport.authenticate('dropbox-oauth2', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
      function(req, res) {
        // Successful authentication, redirect home.
        res.redirect('/');
      });
