node-current npm codecov

The offical Dropbox SDK for Javascript.

Documentation can be found on GitHub Pages

Installation

Create an app via the Developer Console

Install via npm

$ npm install --save dropbox

Install from source:

$ git clone https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-js.git
$ cd dropbox-sdk-js
$ npm install

If you are using the repository from the browser, you can use any CDNs that hosts the Dropbox package by including a script tag with the link to the package. However, we highly recommend you do not directly import the latest version and instead choose a specific version. When we update and release a breaking change, this could break production code which we hope to avoid. Note, we follow semver naming conventions which means that any major version update could contain a breaking change.

After installation, follow one of our Examples or read the Documentation.

You can also view our OAuth guide.

Examples

We provide Examples to help get you started with a lot of the basic functionality in the SDK. We provide most examples in both Javascript and Typescript with some having a Node equivalent.
