How do i integrate Dropbox chooser with Angular app?

How do i integrate Dropbox chooser with Angular app?

I am using angular v 7 which is currently stable angular version. I would like to use angular chooser in my application. I have used it with JavaScript/AngularJS . There i can import script with my app key. Here in angular 7, i need it to work with typescript. How do i do that? If chooser is not available in this scenario, how can i mimic it's functionality?

The Dropbox Chooser isn't officially supported in Angular unfortunately, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. 

If you wanted to replicate the functionality using the Dropbox API, you could do so using the following endpoints (or corresponding methods in an SDK/library), but it would be substantially more work:

Thanks @Greg-DB for quick reply.

What i need is link of users file, which is returned by chooser. i will try to find alternative way to do it.

If you use the Dropbox API, the /2/sharing/create_shared_link_with_settings and /2/files/get_temporary_link endpoints can be used to retrieve links equivalent to "preview" or "direct" links from the Chooser, respectively.
