Has anyone done anything with Google App Script and the Dropbox API (and has code to share)?

- I was thinking of adding Dropbox support to one of my projects but chose Drive instead at the end. From the coding point of view, it's pretty straightforward: OAuth authorization and REST API calls. Regarding the API access in general it's trickier since an explicit approve needed for apps that are willing to work with all user files, not just a single folder.
If someone's willing to work on a library together, I'll gladly join.Jan 20, 2013
- Started looking at this but changes in Public folders and the way folders are shared meant I stuck with Google Drive [worked out how to do site publishing http://mashe.hawksey.info/2013/01/sync-twitter-archive-with-google-drive/ ;) ]Jan 22, 2013
- Apps Script doesn't support natively the flavor of OAuth Dropbox is using. You have to handle it manually.Feb 24, 2013

- Unfortunately, this code is not going to work. Dropbox uses plain text OAuth authentication with a bit different flow than Apps Script supports. I was experimenting with it too and got it working but it's very dirty at the moment. Again, if you're willing to work on this I'd love to collaborate.Feb 24, 2013
- Added my 5 cents. I'll clean up my code later and share it.Feb 25, 2013
- You should pass these parameters in payload object inside parameters object.Mar 5, 2013
- There's no way to share folders using Dropbox API for now, so it won't be 1:1 to DocListApp in terms of features.Mar 5, 2013
