HOWTO perform dev testing with dropbox API

My development server is a private workstation behind campus firewall. Any callback mechanism from 3rd party API services like Dropbox can’t get through.

I used the following to do development & testing:

  1. Read about the API here
  2. Put the following in your app dir’s Rakefile:
    require "dropbox-api"
    require "dropbox-api/tasks"
  3. Run “rakefile dropbox:authorize”
  4. Obtain session key & token, bypassing the need for your 3rd party to call back into the internal workstation
