Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
New to this stuff ... developing a new iOS app in swift using the new dropbox sdk.
I don't need to see the users entire dropbox folders. Just specific to the app
Is there an example of how to do this? I think I have seen something about an app specific folder and authentication for dropbox.
Any examples for this please?
It sounds like you want to use the "app folder" permission. You can find more information about the different permissions here:
You can select the permission when registering an app:
When using the API with an app with the app folder permission, you just supply paths such as "/test.txt" and the API will automatically interpret that to mean a file named "test.txt" inside your app's app folder.
Hmm, I need to allow the user to be able to browse their folders and then pick a file that I will download and save on their iOS device.
So the app needs full access to dropbox.
Can you point me to an example of a ios file picker for dropbox please?
It sounds like you may want to use the Dropbox iOS Chooser then:
Alternatively, you can use UIDocumentPickerViewController, for which the Dropbox app supports the modes:
- UIDocumentPickerModeImport- UIDocumentPickerModeExportToService
