Dropbox Python SDK support for Flask applications.

Project description

Dropbox Python SDK support for Flask applications.

Requirements

Installation

$ pip install Flask-Dropbox

License

Flask-Dropbox is licensed under the BSD License.

Configuration

SECRET_KEY

REQUIRED. As token would be stored in Flask’s session instance, you need to configure secret key for your application.

DROPBOX_KEY

REQUIRED. App key from Dropbox developer site.

DROPBOX_SECRET

REQUIRED. Secret key from Dropbox developer site.

DROPBOX_ACCESS_TYPE

REQUIRED. Should be 'dropbox' or 'app_folder' as configured for your app.

DROPBOX_CALLBACK_URL

By default, you don’t need to provide this setting, cause Flask-Dropbox will setup callback URL automaticly usign current host and type of request, but if you don’t trust us, you could to rewrite this setting manually.

DROPBOX_CALLBACK_TEMPLATE

Template to be used for showing errors while trying to process oAuth callback from Dropbox API. By default: 'dropbox/callback.html'.

Next boolean vars could be sent to the template:

  • error_oauth_token - Dropbox API didn’t return oAuth token.
  • error_not_equal_tokens - oAuth token from Dropbox API is not equal to request token stored in Flask session.
  • error_response - Dropbox API returns ErrorResponse instance. Also actual exception as error var would be sent to the template too.

DROPBOX_LOGIN_REDIRECT

Page to redirect to after user successfully logged in with Dropbox account. By default: /.

DROPBOX_LOGOUT_REDIRECT

Page to redirect to after user logged out from authenticated Dropbox session. By default: /.

Usage

app.py:

from flask import Flask
from flask.ext.dropbox import Dropbox, DropboxBlueprint

import settings


app = Flask(__name__)
app.config.from_object(settings)

dropbox = Dropbox(app)
dropbox.register_blueprint(url_prefix='/dropbox')

settings.py:

SECRET_KEY = 'some-secret-key'
DROPBOX_KEY = 'dropbox-app-key'
DROPBOX_SECRET = 'dropbox-app-secret'
DROPBOX_ACCESS_TYPE = 'app_folder'

views.py:

from flask import url_for
from werkzeug import secure_filename

from app import app, dropbox


@app.route('/')
def home():
    return u'Click <a href="%s">here</a> to login with Dropbox.' % \
           dropbox.login_url


@app.route('/success/<path:filename>')
def success(filename):
    return u'File successfully uploaded as /%s' % filename


@app.route('/upload', methods=('GET', 'POST'))
def upload():
    if not dropbox.is_authenticated:
        return redirect(url_for('home'))

    if request.method == 'POST':
        file_obj = request.files['file']

        if file_obj:
            client = dropbox.client
            filename = secure_filename(file.filename)

            # Actual uploading process
            result = client.put_file('/' + filename, file_obj.read())

            path = result['path'].lstrip('/')
            return redirect(url_for('success', filename=path))

    return u'<form action="" method="post">' \
           u'<input name="file" type="file">' \
           u'<input type="submit" value="Upload">' \
           u'</form>'
