Appwrite Etsy OAuth Integration

Appwrite 1.0 is out now! We have released some amazing features, and also added a few more OAuth2 providers, one of which is Etsy. Let’s go ahead and learn how to set up Etsy authentication in our applications using Appwrite.

About Appwrite

Appwrite is a self-hosted backend-as-a-service platform that provides developers with all the core APIs required to build any application. Appwrite provides you with a set of APIs, tools, and a management console UI to help you build your apps a lot faster and in a much more secure way.

πŸ“ƒPrerequisites

To follow along with this tutorial, you’ll need access to an Appwrite project or permissions to create one. If you don’t already have an Appwrite server running, follow the official installation tutorial to set one up. Once you create a project on the Appwrite Console, you can head over to Users β†’Settings to find the list of all supported OAuth2 providers. This is where we will set up the Etsy OAuth provider.

You will also need an account at Etsy, so if you don’t have one, you can easily create one for free from here.

πŸ” Configure Etsy OAuth

Once our Appwrite project is up and running, we must create an app at Etsy. After signing in, head over to https://www.etsy.com/developers/register and create a new application.

🀝Enable Etsy in Appwrite

  1. To enable Etsy in Appwrite, visit the Appwrite Dashboard and head over to Users→Settings.
  2. From the list of providers, choose Etsy and enter the App ID and App Secret from the previous step (i.e., the Client Id and Client Secret).

  1. Make sure you copy the redirect URL from Appwrite’s Etsy OAuth Setting dialog and paste it to your Etsy app’s Callback URL.

Follow the Getting Started for Web guide for detailed instruction on how to use Appwrite with your web application.

Import {Client, Account} from β€˜appwrite’;

const client = newClient();

appwrite
  .setEndpoint('[YOUR_END_POINT]')
  .setProject('[YOUR_PROJECT_ID]');

    await appwrite.account.createOAuth2Session(
        "Etsy",
        "[YOUR_END_POINT]/auth/oauth2/success",
        "[YOUR_END_POINT]/auth/oauth2/failure",
    );

const account = new Account(client);
account.createOAuth2Session();

Flutter

For Flutter, in Android, to properly handle redirecting your users back to your mobile application after completion of the OAuth flow, you need to set the following in your AndroidManifest.xml file.

<manifest ...>
  ...
  <application ...>
    ...
    <!-- Add this inside the `<application>` tag, along side the existing `<activity>` tags -->
    <activity android:name="com.linusu.flutter_web_auth.CallbackActivity" android:exported="true">
      <intent-filter android:label="flutter_web_auth">
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
        <data android:scheme="appwrite-callback-[PROJECT_ID]" />
      </intent-filter>
    </activity>
  </application>
</manifest>

You also need to add the Flutter platform to your project from the Appwrite console. Adding Flutter platforms allows Appwrite to validate the request it receives and prevents requests from unknown applications. On the project settings page, click on Add Platform button and select New Flutter App. In the dialog box that appears, select the appropriate Flutter platform, give a recognizable name to your platform and add the application ID or package name based on the platform. You need to follow this step for each Flutter platform you will build your application for.

For more detailed instructions on getting started with Appwrite for Flutter developers, follow our official Getting Started for Flutter guide. Finally, you can call account.createOAuth2Session from your application as shown below.

import 'package:appwrite/appwrite.dart';

void main() async {
    final client = new Client();

    client
    .setEndpoint('YOUR_END_POINT')
    .setProject('YOUR_PROJECT_ID');

    final account = Account(client);

    try {
        await account.createOAuth2Session(
            provider: "Etsy"
        );
    } catch (error) {
        throw error;
    }
}

<manifest ...>
  ...
  <application ...>
    ...
    <!-- Add this inside the `<application>` tag, along side the existing `<activity>` tags -->
    <activity android:name="io.appwrite.views.CallbackActivity" android:exported="true">
      <intent-filter android:label="android_web_auth">
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
        <data android:scheme="appwrite-callback-[PROJECT_ID]" />

You also need to add the Android platform to your project from the Appwrite console. Adding Android platforms allows Appwrite to validate the request it receives and also prevents requests from unknown applications. On the project settings page, click on Add Platform button and select New Android App. In the dialog box that appears, give your platform a recognizable name and add the package name of your application.

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity
import android.os.Bundle
import kotlinx.coroutines.GlobalScope
import kotlinx.coroutines.launch
import io.appwrite.Client
import io.appwrite.services.Account

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)

        val client = Client(applicationContext)
            .setEndpoint("https://[HOSTNAME_OR_IP]/v1") // Your API Endpoint
            .setProject("5df5acd0d48c2") // Your project ID

        val account = Account(client)

        GlobalScope.launch {
            account.createOAuth2Session(
                activity = this@MainActivity,
                provider = "Etsy"
            )

        }
    }

Apple

To capture the Appwrite OAuth callback URL, the following URL scheme needs to add to your Info.plist.

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
<dict>
    <key>CFBundleTypeRole</key>
    <string>Editor</string>
    <key>CFBundleURLName</key>
    <string>io.appwrite</string>
