List files and folders api

List files and folders api

"https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder" and 
"https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder/continue" endpoints lists all the contents inside the directory. But I want to list all the contents but first priority should be of subfolders. Which means if I have used pagination and requesting first 15 items then response should fetch all the directories first and then include files if any. Which simply means I wanted filter/ parameter in which I must be able to set orderby which takes some values like files/folders etc according to which it should fetch the contents. Is there any parameter in above endpoint which I am missing which will help me complete my goal? Any help would be great...

These endpoints don't offer a way to have subfolders listed first, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

Do you have other any api which will satisfy my condition, which I can use?

No, the API doesn't offer anything else quite like that. You'll need to retrieve all of the results and apply whatever sorting you want client-side.
