Simple client Dropbox (which uses API v2)

Simple client Dropbox (which uses API v2)

Where can I get a simple client to synchronize one folder on the computer. Need to constantly sync only one folder. in the folder change files and need to constantly sync. The standard client is very large and consumes a lot of RAM.

 

Please help to find a simple client for Windows.  :slight_smile:

We don't have a pre-built sync client that uses API v2 like that, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

 

If you want to implement one, you can use the API to list, upload, and download files as necessary.

1) how long you will use API v1? There is a possibility that after some time the access to the API v1 will be closed?

 

2) if there is a simple client written for API v1, please tell me where to download it?

1. Yes, API v1 is being retired in June. You can find more information here:

https://blogs.dropbox.com/developers/2016/06/api-v1-deprecated/

2. No, unfortunately I don't have anything like this for API v1 to reccomend.

If it helps, this example app for the Python API v2 SDK may be close to what you're looking for, but note that it is only an example app:

Tanja_S, I am currently developing such a client for macOS and Linux. If you have some experience with Python development and are interested in porting it to Windows, let me know!
