The Datastore API lets you effortlessly sync all of your app's structured data such as contacts, to-do items, and game state. It enables your app to sync data quickly, manage conflicting changes, and even work offline.
Before building an app using the Datastore API, you'll need to create an app on the App Console.
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 API methods.
If you want to see the Datastore API in action, check out the example/datastore_app directory in the SDK bundle. There you can find a simple task tracking web app that uses the Datastore API to save tasks to Dropbox, as well as command-line and Tkinter versions of the same app.
