I am looking for some help with orchestrating downloads from Dropbox to a local filesystem. I have essentially built a file-transfer application which will allow our users to upload large files from Dropbox to our system.
If I have the oauth2 token AND the temporary link, is there a way I can "convert" that to a path which I can use which does not have the time constraint? I'd love to be able to continue using the Chooser, and reverse-engineer the path in the user's Dropbox (to which I will have full access). Is this remotely possible?
That will give you a non-expiring link from which you can directly download the file content.
Things to be aware of however: - these preview links don't expire but can still be revoked at any time by the user - these preview links will be listed in the user's shared links on https://www.dropbox.com/links
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
