an inbox for your Dropbox. Try it out at!

By visiting your personal dbinbox url, non-Dropbox users will be able to upload files straight into a special inbox folder in your Dropbox.

This is also quite handy if you need to send yourself a file from someone else's computer but don't want to log into email or remember a tinyurl.

An answer to



Deploying a private instance


To deploy on Heroku's Cedar stack:

  1. Create a new app and add the heroku-postgresql addon:

    heroku apps:create
    heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql
  2. Set BUNDLE_WITHOUT to ignore the sqlite dependencies (this requires enabling the user_env_compile feature flag):

    heroku labs:enable user-env-compile
    heroku config:set BUNDLE_WITHOUT="development:test:sqlite"
  3. Configure your Dropbox key and secret

    heroku config:set DROPBOX_KEY="my-dropbox-key"
    heroku config:set DROPBOX_SECRET="my-dropbox-secret"
  4. Set some Heroku-specific settings

    heroku config:set LOG_TO_STDOUT=true
  5. Push!

    git push heroku master
