A .NET SDK for integrating with the Dropbox API v2.

Support Platforms

  • .NET Framework 4+
  • Windows Store Apps
  • Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 Apps
  • Silverlight 5.0


To get started with Dropbox.NET, we recommend you add it to your project using NuGet.

To install Dropbox.Api, run the following command in the Package Manager Console:

PM> Install-Package Dropbox.Api

Creating an application

You need to create an Dropbox Application to make API requests.

Obtaining an access token

All requests need to be made with an OAuth 2 access token. To get started, once you've created an app, you can go to the app's console and generate an access token for your own Dropbox account.
