Yes, you can create a shared link for any file or folder using sharingCreateSharedLinkWithSettings:

https://dropbox.github.io/dropbox-sdk-js/Dropbox.html#sharingCreateSharedLinkWithSettings

You can retrieve any existing links using sharingListSharedLinks:

Dear Greg thank you very much for your amazing support. When we go full to production I'll urge my team to continue using dropbox in more use cases.
