git repository on Dropbox

git repository on Dropbox

Hello,

I'm a software developer and I have been using Dropbox to keep remote git repositories. So far I have had no problems with this, but I ran across a question on Stack Exchange that gives me pause. See the following link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1960799/using-git-and-dropbox-together-effectively

The suposed issue is the Dropbox client doesn't handle the multi-threaded way git moves files to and from the remote. The post is a few years old so I'n not sure if this is an issue currently.

The solution according to the link is to use git-remote-dropbox. See the Link:

If anyone knows anything about this, please post.

Thanks,

Wayne Anderson

Hi Wayne, it sounds like this isn't about using the Dropbox API in particular, so I'm afraid I can't offer help with this. I just moved your post to the more general "Developers & API > General Discussion" forum section though in case any other developers there have any insight to share.
