Create/edit documents through API

Create/edit documents through API

Hi,

 

I've submitted a similar Feature Requests months ago and it's been asked also in:

 

They're both marked as solved, but as far as I can tell through the existing APIs is not possible to actually edit or create new documents.

 

Am I missing something?

I also would love the ability to programatically edit Paper documents. I'm trying to build a journal app that syncs text files in a folder that I have with something like Dropbox Paper so I can add to my journal on the iPad, and the ability to save documents into Dropbox is the last missing piece!

Thanks for the request! That's correct, the current Paper API doesn't support creating/editing documents, but we're tracking that as a separate feature request.

The Dropbox API now offers a way to create and update Paper documents programmatically:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#paper-docs-create
https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#paper-docs-update

If you're using an official SDK, there will also be corresponding methods for those endpoints.
Need more support?
