Fileblob not visible with latest version of dropbox api #809

Fileblob not visible with latest version of dropbox api #809

I try to download an image from my dropbox account using the filesDownload method in my vue.js application. But when I try to get the result it does not show me the option to get fileBlob only some metainformation. But I want to download the image directly to a project folder. This is my code with which I try to download it.

 

getImages() {
      const fs = require('fs');
      const Dropbox = require("dropbox").Dropbox;
      let pictures2 = [];
      const dbx = new Dropbox({
        accessToken: '<REDACTED>'
      });
      dbx.filesDownload({
      path: "/test/road-6576857_1920.jpg"
      }).then(function(data) {
        fs.writeFile(data.result.name, data.result.fileBlob, 'binary', (err) => {
        console.log(data.result)
        )},
      )}
      )}
  }

I'll follow up with you on your GitHub issue. For future reference, note that you don't need to post on both the forum and GitHub repo. Either is fine.

 

Also, as noted in an earlier thread, you should not post your access token. I've redacted it from your posts, but you should make sure you revoke it for the sake of your security.
