To Authenticate Dropbox with Twitter OAuth, book a demo with DreamFactory. DreamFactory is an open source API gateway that can handle all of your customized integrations.
What is DreamFactory?
DreamFactory is the premier API lifecycle management platform.
It eliminates duplication of effort in code development, documentation, and testing by allowing you to model your application easily and create fully-documented REST API.
This enables agile application developers to build, deploy and maintain new applications faster.
DreamFactory's capabilities go well beyond integrating APIs with a wide range of authentication providers. Additional security-related features include:
- Automated API key management
- Granular role-based access controls, allowing you to restrict APIs to specific endpoints and even limit access by HTTP method
- Request volume limiting on a per-service, per-user, and even a per-endpoint basis
- The ability to extend endpoints using custom scripting, allowing for data masking, input validation, geofencing, and much more
What is Dropbox?
With Dropbox, you can create your own private space in the cloud and share files with friends, family, and colleagues.
This online space works seamlessly across all devices, so users can easily share a photo from Smartphones or make edits to a presentation from Tablets or Laptops.
Dropbox for Business offers powerful team collaboration features. These include setting up shared folders within Dropbox, tracking file changes and additions in real time.
The Dropbox API can be used to build powerful integrations for users. Dropbox offers a webhook system, perform atomic file operations with built-in versioning, and can pull data about users across your organization.
What is Twitter OAuth?
Twitter's three-legged OAuth flow allows your application to obtain an access token and access token secret by redirecting a user to Twitter and having them authorize your application. This flow is almost identical to the flow described in implementing Log in with Twitter, except that it uses a full URL to pass state through the redirect URI so that you can get back a valid set of credentials.
