Way to have a Dropbox folder selector

Level 4

Hi there!

So just wondering if there is a package or feature that can get a user's dropbox folder and upload documents to that file path using an api POST call to upload a document?

For more information a package or function that has a pop up window, allows user to select a folder, then when user uses my app and they decide to upload then it uses that upload path.

Thanks!

Based on your description, the closest thing we offer is the "Dropbox Saver":

If that isn't quite what you're looking for, you'd need to build your own UI for selecting the folder and and code for uploading files using the API.

Thanks for the reply!

Okay, is there a way to get a list of folders for a user's dropbox? say I want to get all folders from a user, is there an api call or any documentation that supports this feature/function?

Thanks Greg

Yes, to list the contents of a connected user's account, you should use the /2/files/list_folder[/continue] methods:

To list the root, use the empty string "" as the path value. 

Note that these methods will also list files too, but you can filter those out client-side.

Those are links to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible:

Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints.
