As a developer, I want to build an integration on Dropbox

On Bearer

Clone the template

npm init bearer dropbox -t -d providers/dropbox
cd dropbox

Configure your API credentials

npm run bearer setup:auth
? Enter Dropbox Client ID:
? Enter Dropbox Client Secret:
Setup the integration with your Dropbox OAuth2 credentials. This will allow you to make authenticated API requests. Don't know your Dropbox OAuth2 credentials?

Test the pre-built function

npm run bearer invoke defaultFunction
    "data": [

        "id": "id:9lJjA0g_x6AAAAAAAAAACQ",
        "name": "Get Started with Dropbox Paper.url",
        "path": "/get started with dropbox paper.url",
        "isFolder": false
        "id": "id:9lJjA0g_x6AAAAAAAAAACg",
        "name": "Get Started with Dropbox.pdf",
        "path": "/get started with dropbox.pdf",
        "isFolder": false

Code your own function

npm run bearer generate:function myFunction
create: functions/myFunction.ts
Function generated
✨ Done
Use your function to call any Dropbox endpoint and map the data to your app models.

Deploy your integration

npm run bearer push
Refreshing tokens... done
✓ Generate bundle
✓ Transfer bundle
🐻 Integration successfully pushed.
Once your integration is ready, deploy it on the Bearer platform and you’re good to go!
On Your App

Add a Connect Component

<script src=""></script>
const bearerClient = bearer('BEARER_CLIENT_ID')
Once users log in with their Dropbox account, your functions are able to query the API using their credentials.

Call your functions

<script src=""></script>
const bearerClient = bearer('BEARER_CLIENT_ID')
bearerClient.invoke('INTEGRATION_UUID', 'FUNCTION_NAME', {
query: { params: 'value' }
.then(() => {
console.log('Successfully invoked function')
.catch(() => {
console.log('Something went wrong')
Use our integration clients to call your functions from your app.
