Naming "Dropbox timestamp"

Naming "Dropbox timestamp"

ADoncel
Explorer | Level 4

Hello,

 

I would like to suggest an addition in the Dropbox API documentation, because in nowhere it is clear that the argument is a Dropbox timestamp not a Unix timestamp. Also, there is no documentation about "Dropbox timestamp" or what it refers to, at least not in the Python API, because of this I cannot know the format of it, or accepted values.

 

So, when you try what I know for timestamp, you get this error ValidationError: expected timestamp and got interger, since timestamp is not a type on Python I didn't know what was "timestamp", because for me as for any developer in this world, I suppose, the type timestamp makes reference to Unix timestamp, if you only mention that word, so I would change that ValidationError to be a bit more specific.

 

I just though it was interesting to make it clear for everyone.

 

Thank you for your time.
