To make things as easy as possible, we have several platform SDKs you can import into your development environment to get up and running quickly. The SDKs contain platform-specific libraries that wrap the raw HTTP calls to the Dropbox API. They are designed to shorten the distance between your application and integrating Dropbox.
Download and uncompress the Python SDK. To install the
dropbox module and any dependencies, run the setup script (you may need
python setup.py install
Alternatively, you can use
pip to automatically download and install the module.
pip install dropbox
That's it. Once you import the
dropbox module into your app, you'll be able to use all the Core API methods.
For examples of how to use the SDK, explore the scripts in the example folder:
To get these examples running, you'll need to edit each script and enter your app key and secret where indicated. Also make sure that the access type is set to
dropbox as configured for your app.
