(Node.js) Dropbox: OAuth2 Authorization to Obtain an Access Token

Demonstrates how to get a Dropbox OAuth2 access token from a desktop application or script.

This example runs the OAuth 2.0 authorization flow that lets the user sign in to Dropbox and authorize your app.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.66 or greater to work properly.

Install Chilkat for Node.js and Electron using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js

Chilkat npm packages for Electron

on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, and ARM

var os = require('os');
if (os.platform() == 'win32') {  
    var chilkat = require('chilkat_node10_win32'); 
} else if (os.platform() == 'linux') {
    if (os.arch() == 'arm') {
        var chilkat = require('chilkat_node10_arm');
    } else if (os.arch() == 'x86') {
