Dropbox API download errors

Dropbox API download errors

Explorer | Level 3

trying to get the Dropbox API for android studio. i want to download the github repo and run the examples. i ran the following code like the README said:

$git clone

$cd dropbox-sdk-java

$ ./update-submodules

When I then try to run 

$ ./gradlew build

I get a fail with this erro: 

* Where: Script '/Users/G/Desktop/dropbox-sdk-java/stone.gradle' line: 78

* What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':generateStone'.

> Process 'command 'python'' finished with non-zero exit value 1

And I don't know how to fix this.

Re: Dropbox API download errors


Do you need to build from source for some reason, or would the pre-built package be fine? If you don't need to build from source, it would be easier to just use the pre-built package than to debug why the build is failing for you.


For instance, you can replace this 'compile' line in examples/build.gradle with the 'implementation' line from the setup instructions. That would tell gradle to just download the currently latest version of the Dropbox Java SDK to use.

Do you work or study in the creative industry? If so, which area?
If you use Adobe, don't forget to check out our latest integrations update here.
