+1 for smart sync CLI. This would allow us as a company to customize our user syncing along exactly the metrics we care about.
I've felt a bit hamstrung by the lack of tuning Dropbox provides, although it's gotten a bit better lately. If I had a smart sync CLI, we could tune the settings exactly how we want. (E.g., no local .rvt files on tablets.) This would be a big quality of life improvement for our firm.
Have Dropbox managed to move this request forward? I’d also find it very useful to automate the process of changing the status of older files into an online status using a script or a built in feature to the GUI interface
It's been more than a year for this request. Why don't you all get some open source repositiories and get help from the community for these things? You can still make sure that any API is as secure or more so than the desktop apps.
Chiming in here - would be amazing to be able to via some API toggle which files should be local/online. RegEX support would be superb, possibly even hidden behind some "advanced features" checkbox so normal users won't accidentaly mess up/get scared.
But a very basic and easily implementable feature would be to add a command line equivalent to right clicking and choosing local/online.
