Can I use localhost as redirect_uri in production

Can I use localhost as redirect_uri in production

Explorer | Level 3

Hi,

I have desktop application which is using dropbox API. So, to get oauth token, application is opening authorization url in external browser(Safari, Chrome or whatever...). I`m using http://localhost:33221/dropbox/auth as redirect_url. Application is listening port 33221 on local machine to get oauth token. Is it ok for production? I did not find any guides for desktop applications. Only for web - https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/oauth-guide

Thanks.

Yes, Dropbox allows the use of localhost redirect URIs.
