    React Google Contacts

    A Google Button to import user's gmail contacts

    React Google Contacts


    npm install react-google-contacts

    How to use

    import React from 'react';
    import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
    import GoogleContacts from 'react-google-contacts';
    const responseCallback = (response) => {

    Google button without styling or custom button

        render={renderProps => (
          <button onClick={renderProps.onClick}>This is my custom Google button</button>

    onSuccess callback

    If responseType is not 'code', callback will return an array of objects (contacts).

    If responseType is 'code', callback will return the offline token for use on your server.

    If you use the hostedDomain param, make sure to validate the id_token (a JSON web token) returned by Google on your backend server:

    1. In the responseGoogle(response) {...} callback function, you should get back a standard JWT located at response.hg.id_token
    2. Send this token to your server (preferably as an Authorization header)
    3. Have your server decode the id_token by using a common JWT library such as jwt-simple or by sending a GET request to https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/tokeninfo?id_token=YOUR_TOKEN_HERE
    4. The returned decoded token should have an hd key equal to the hosted domain you'd like to restrict to.
