omniauth-dropbox (Under Development!)
This gem contains the Dropbox strategy for OmniAuth.
Dropbox uses the OAuth 1.0a flow, you can read about it here: www.dropbox.com/developers/start/authentication#ruby
How To Use It
Usage is as per any other OmniAuth 1.0 strategy. So let's say you're using Rails, you need to add the strategy to your Gemfile:
You can pull them in directly from github e.g.:
gem 'omniauth-dropbox', :git => 'https://github.com/metamn/omniauth-dropbox.git'
Once these are in, you need to add the following to your config/initializers/omniauth.rb:
Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do provider :dropbox, "app_key", "app_secret" end
You will obviously have to put in your key and secret, which you get when you register your app with Dropbox.
If you are using Devise check out the wiki: github.com/plataformatec/devise/wiki/OmniAuth:-Overview
Now just follow the README at: github.com/intridea/omniauth

Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
