dbx-tools (command line tools for Linux)

Helpful | Level 6

Don’t know where else to share this, but I wrote a set of scripts for interfacing with Dropbox via the command line:

 

github.com/feklee/dbx-tools

 

dbx-tools depends on Dropbox’s own tool dbxcli.

 

At the moment, you can download and upload files and directories (recursively), and you can perform deletions. Newly implemented is super primitive sync™, to avoid downloading/uploading the same file twice. See the usage example in README.md.

 

The motivation for writing dbx-tools: I wanted to be able to conveniently interface with Dropbox from within Termux, a terminal emulator for Android.

Hi Chuck, thanks for the invitation to the program!

 

However, please understand that I want to focus on developing the tool that I wrote. Of course, I’m happy to answer questions and react to suggestions and wishes by users, here or via the GitHub issue tracker.
