Url scheme for a dropbox folder

Url scheme for a dropbox folder

I created a widget that will be placed into iBook Author. The widget can open my Dropbox app which is installed on my ipad, (dbapi-1://) but I am looking to open a specific folder or go to a specific file.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

Unfortunately Dropbox doesn't offer a way to open the app to a specific file or folder, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

@densko No, unfortunately I don't have any news on this.

I did it that way:

dbapi-6://1/viewLink?url= → Shared URL to the Folder

While there may currently be functionality like that, note that it is not officially documented or supported, so I can't recommend relying on that, as it would be subject to change without notice.
