OmniAuth Weibo OAuth2

Weibo OAuth2 Strategy for OmniAuth 1.0.

Read Weibo OAuth2 docs for more details:授权机制


Add to your Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-weibo-oauth2'

Then bundle install.

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install omniauth-weibo-oauth2


OmniAuth::Strategies::Weibo is simply a Rack middleware. Read the OmniAuth 1.0 docs for detailed instructions:

Here's a quick example, adding the middleware to a Rails app in config/initializers/omniauth.rb:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :weibo, ENV['WEIBO_KEY'], ENV['WEIBO_SECRET']


you can set up redirect_uri in omniauth.rb as following:

provider :weibo, ENV['WEIBO_KEY'], ENV['WEIBO_SECRET'],
         token_params: {redirect_uri: "" }

Authentication Option

  • image_size: This option defines the size of the user's image in Authentication Hash (info['image']). Valid options include small (30x30), middle (50x50), large (180x180) and original (the size of the image originally uploaded). Default is middle.
Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :weibo, ENV['WEIBO_KEY'], ENV['WEIBO_SECRET'], :image_size => 'original'

Authentication Hash

Here's an example Authentication Hash available in request.env['omniauth.auth']:

  :provider => 'weibo',
  :uid => '1234567890',
  :info => {
    :nickname => 'beenhero',
    :name => 'beenhero',
    :location => '浙江 杭州',
    :image => '',
    :description => '移步twitter@beenhero',
    :urls => {  :Blog => ''
                :Weibo => ''
  :credentials => {
    :token => '2.00JjgzmBd7F...', # OAuth 2.0 access_token, which you may wish to store
    :expires_at => 1331780640, # when the access token expires (if it expires)
    :expires => true # if you request `offline_access` this will be false
  :extra => {
    :raw_info => {
      ... # data from /2/users/show.json, check by yourself
