Python metadata help

In V1 as metadata was returned in a dictionary all i had to do was myMeta.get("name") to get the name of an item for examle.

 

Whats the best way to get direct info in V2

 

 

Do i have to regex the metadata object to get name or content hash or is there better way?

Re: Python metadata help

I'm glad to hear you sorted this out already. Yes, you can directly access those fields like that, no regex necessary.

 

For anyone else looking for this, here's that sample cleaned up:

 

import dropbox

dbx = dropbox.Dropbox("<ACCESS_TOKEN>")

myDir = dbx.files_list_folder("")
for item in myDir.entries:
    if isinstance(item, dropbox.files.FileMetadata):
        name = item.name
        fileID = item.id
        fileHash = item.content_hash
        print(name, fileID, fileHash)
