We recently received a question asking for advice on how to set up a Dropbox account for an elderly family member. This prompted us to think about the different ways we can make Dropbox more accessible in general, learn about it and add your tips right over here.
Hello, I would like to use Dropbox to store images received on my backend. I would also like to get access to the URL that I can directly use in <image href> in frontend. However, going through /upload API I can't find any property in response that corresponds to a URL.
I am using NodeJS + Express as my backend. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
@benfsmith While the Dropbox API does offer the ability to programmatically create (temporary) direct links, the documentation notes "This URL should not be used to display content directly in the browser.". I can't speak to whether or not this would happen to work for your use case in practice, but Dropbox doesn't officially support it, so we wouldn't be able to offer help with any issues that may arise with that.
