API v2 objective-c rate limit error hadling configuration?

API v2 objective-c rate limit error hadling configuration?

Hi, I was wandering if Dropbox Objective C V2 library has a built-in way transparently handling retries when it gets rate limit errors.

 

If not, what do you suggest I do to handle the case?

The SDK doesn't offer a way to automatically retry these requests for you, but you can catch them as shown here, in the isRateLimitError line:

https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-obj-c#generic-network-request-errors

You can have your app decide what to do there, e.g., retry or not, depending on what you want your app to do.

I see, that sounds like a great item for feature request. (I actually would like that better than being able to batch thumbnail requests).

 

Also, what about the rate limit on production-approved apps? Is that the same rate as ones in development?

Thanks, I'll file that as a feature request.

The rate limit is the same for production apps as apps in development.
