Hello friends, I want to upload all images automatically into my dropbox whenever any image upload at this website. For this purpose is there any API, do I need to work in PHP or it can be achieved without any programming skills? please let me know. Waiting for your kind response. (Note: I need to complete this task within 3 days)

Dropbox does offer an API you can use for listing, uploading, and downloading files, among other operations. You can find everything you need to get started with the Dropbox API, including documentation, tutorials, and SDKs here:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers 

For example, for uploading files, you can use the /2/files/upload endpoint:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-upload

You can use the Dropbox API from any platform that can make HTTPS calls, not just PHP. This sort of integration would require some amount of programming though.

If you do want to use PHP, note that we don't have an SDK for PHP in particular, but you can call the HTTPS endpoints directly, as noted above, or use a third party library.

Hello there!

I also have the same question, but for a different purpose. I have a trivia categories quiz site for the users and I want to know if there's any kind of API that can work as dropbox at my site.

@jkniazi Yes, the information in my previous reply on this thread is still accurate. Please refer to that for more information.
