Obtain access tokens to Stack Exchange accounts with Handshake.

How it works

With your instance deployed, simply redirect users to:


Where HANDLER_ID is either stackexchange or the value passed to the optional id argument of the StackExchange() factory. (See Usage below.)

Handshake will take the user through the Stack Exchange OAuth flow and redirect them back to the URL specified by the callback_uri query parameter.


Modify your app/options.ts file to include the StackExchange() handler like so:

import { StackExchange, HandshakeOptions } from "handshake";
const config: HandshakeOptions = {
  handlers: [
      clientId: string,
      clientSecret: string,
// ...

Consult the reference to learn about HandshakeOptions.
