OAuth2 on device with limited input capabilities

OAuth2 on device with limited input capabilities

So I'm looking into options for an embedded device to authenticate a user via OAuth and thus allow access to their stored documents. The issue is the devices don't really have a robust browser, and have limited input capabilities.

 

I know that Google API has something that will work OAuth2ForDevices. Basically as I understand it, you will be given a "User Code". You then go to an actualy PC/Phone/Tablet and use this code to authorize the application.

 

Is there anything comparable to this workflow in the Dropbox API?

No, the Dropbox API doesn't offer anything quite like this, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

Has this changed since the post?  We are looking for the same thing.

No, Dropbox still doesn't offer this flow.
