List/Sync Dropbox Files in Drupal 7 Website

List/Sync Dropbox Files in Drupal 7 Website

Suncor J.
New member | Level 1

Would like to store files in Dropbox and automatically sync them to be displayed (as a file list) in my Drupal 7 website. There is a Drupal module that is supposed to do this (https://www.drupal.org/project/dropbox_client) but it does not seem to work.

Any ideas as to how I can accomplish this?

Regards

John

That module is made by a third party, so we can't offer any support for it.

Dropbox does offer an API that enables programmatic listing, uploading, and downloading of files though, so this is possible. You can find everything you need to get started with the Dropbox API, including documentation, tutorials, and SDKs here:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers

You'll need to register an app here:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps/create

App authorization is processed using OAuth. You can find more information about using OAuth here:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/oauthguide

We don't currently have an official PHP SDK for Dropbox API v2, so if you're using PHP, you can either call the API v2 endpoints directly:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation

Or use the official PHP SDK for Dropbox API v1:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers-v1/core/sdks/php
https://www.dropbox.com/developers-v1/core/start/php
https://dropbox.github.io/dropbox-sdk-php/api-docs/v1.1.x/

Ya, way over my head. Thanks anyway. Was just looking to sync files in Dropbox with my Drupal 7 website.

Google Drive may work.

 

thank you
