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