Re: Sync files behavior on android

Sync files behavior on android

Hello. I would like to implement a sync files behavior for my android application using the Dropbox API v2. From the Java documentation and your samples on github I find it hard to understand what steps are needed in order to achieve such a behavior. You have only samples for uploading and downloading a file, but what about synching multiple files? 

Could you please be so kind to provide a basic tutorial doing that or describe in some detail the steps I need to follow in order to implement such functionality for an android app? Thank you!

The Dropbox API v2 Java SDK offers the ability to upload and download files programmatically, but it doesn't offer pre-built "sync" functionality. You'll need to use the uploading and downloading capabilities to develop whatever kind of sync logic you want in your app. I'll send this along as a request for pre-built sync support, or a tutorial, but I can't promise if/when that would be written.

I'll make a note to follow up on this thread if/when something like this is written. (I'm not aware of any current work on anything like this though, so I do recommend working on an implementation in your own app's code.)
