Dropbox's custom interpreter

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Apologies if this is not the right forum, but I am interested in using Dropbox's custom python interpreter. I read about it in this paper: https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/woot13/woot13-kholia.pdf

I understand it is not a watertight solution, but it should be good enough for my purposes.

Can anybody point me in the right direction? Does Dropbox license their custom python interpreter for use by third parties?

Thanks,
Vikram

I don't believe we offer access to this, but I'll pass this along as a request to make that available.

Thanks for the response Greg

Is there a name for the custom python interpreter that I could use to refer to it? Also, let me know if I can help in any way to expedite making it available.

Thanks,
Vikram

There isn't a name I'm aware of. (It's not part of the public Dropbox API though, so I'm not very familiar with it.)

In any case, just to be clear, I've sent this along as a request, but I can't promise if or when this would be done.
