Upload a file using c++ via curl

Re: Upload a file using c++ via curl

Helpful | Level 5

@Здравко I have spent some trying to figure the code out and I did, not everything though, but I couldn't apply it to my code. It looks like it is the hard way to do that

@Greg-DB any clue?

@hb_  Yes definitely. You are trying to implement something like new SDK, in fact. That's why I proposed this on the thread! To be more easy, at least for future. May be an easier way would be take a look on some existing SDK (on language familiar to you) and reimplement what's there (at least needed parts).

@Здравко so you are saying that currently there's no way to upload file from my computer to my dropbox account using c++ via curl??

No! Just opposite. Just some more work would be needed, because of missing SDK ready. And Between: again libcurl is C library, not C++, that's why ifstream object can't be 'stream' (i.e. cast) directly. Be careful.

C code still works on C++, so any C code that can do what I am intending to do would be useful to me.

And I need to know that 'some more work' so I can do it

Yes, of course. But there are some differences you have to be aware! In C++ you can use overload functions (for example), but not in C. Again, just be careful.

I have some basic knowledge of C and I am aware of the C limitations

I really thank you @Здравко  for investing so much time trying to help me. I really appreciate it.

I will keep looking for a way to do what I want.
Hopefully @Greg-DB will come with a solution

You're on the right track. That is, you can upload files to Dropbox using HTTPS requests to /2/files/upload, and you have the basic code to do so already. 

It sounds like you're currently working on how to get the data from the local file system though, which isn't specific to Dropbox, so I'm afraid I can't offer much specific help with that in particular, nor do I have a code sample for that in particular. (I'm also certainly not a C expert.)

As I said, I will keep looking

Thank you for your time @Greg-DB 

As for DropBox I will be expecting an official C++ SDK soon 

Edit: As a note I found  a repo on github, a dropbox api c++ library that on looks seems to do what I want but I haven't figure the whole code out and get it to work

@Здравко @Greg-DB  if you guys could check it out some time and try to figure the code out and hit me back that would be awsome nit only for me but for anyone that wants to do what I want to do

Just to be clear, I've sent this along as a feature request, but I can't promise if or when Dropbox would release an official C++ SDK for API v2. (I'm not currently of any such work on one.)
