Lost. Can't find your documentation client2.DropboxAPI

Lost. Can't find your documentation client2.DropboxAPI

Dan R.23

I have an Android app I created using some of the basic examples on the dropbox developers site.  Now I am expanding the app and need to understand the api.  Currently I'm using the client2.DropboxAPI to do stuff like putFileOverwrite and such.  But I cannot find any documentation for this at all besides the simple examples.  Can someone please point me in the right direction. Going in circles, its seems it should be a lot easier to find the documentation.  Thanks.

Moved to the API forum.

Have you looked here yet?

Based on the "putFileOverwrite" method you mentioned, it sounds like you're using API v1 functionality. API v1 is deprecated, but the install page, tutorial, and documentation are still live on the site.

We recommend using API v2 though. For an Android app, you should use the Java SDK for API v2. That page links to an Android sample. There's also the install page, tutorial, and documentation.
