Is there any way for app to have read-only permission on all dropbox files?

Level 2

Hey guys, I want to develop app for embedding dropbox file previews into web pages, however it looks like my app will need 'Full Dropbox' file type permission which I don't really need.

I was wondering whenever there is (even undocumented) way to have app with read-only permission to dropbox files.

The closest analogy would be read only scope on google drive api (https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.readonly onto https://developers.google.com/drive/web/scopes))

No, the permissions are documented here, and we don't have a read-only permission.
