OmniAuth Shopify Strategy

Strategy for authenticating to Shopify API using OmniAuth.

Build Status


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-shopify'


First, you will need to register an application with Shopify and obtain an API key. Once you do that, you can use it like so:

use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :shopify, 'api_key', 'shared_secret'

Auth Hash Schema

The following information is provided back to you for this provider:

  uid: 'some-store',
  info: {
    name: 'some-store',
    urls: { site: '' }
  credentials: { # basic auth
    username: 'api_key',
    password: 'password'


examples/ directory contains few simple sinatra apps:

  • auth_hash.rb - displays auth hash schema
  • api_consumer.rb - consuming api with httparty

So, make sure you have sinatra and httparty gems and run it as follow:

SHOPIFY_KEY="apikey" SHOPIFY_SECRET="secret" ruby auth_hash.rb
