In April we announced API v2, a new version of our Dropbox API. Over the past few weeks, we also released preview versions of SDKs for Swift, Python, and .NET that work with API v2. And now we’ve put this all together in a new developer site, specifically for API v2.

The content is mostly the same as our previous blog posts, but now it’s in a single easy-to-find location.
Today we’re announcing the Dropbox.NET SDK, a new SDK that you can use to try out our new API v2 preview. We’ve built this SDK to support the Microsoft development community and we’d love to get your thoughts and feedback.
The Dropbox.NET SDK is a Portable Class Library that works with multiple platforms including Windows, Windows Phone, and Mono.
Please keep in mind that both the SDK and API v2 are in preview mode so please don’t use them for your production apps just yet. We’ll let you know when the final versions are ready.
We’ve been hard at work on API v2, and today we’re releasing a second preview SDK: the Dropbox Python SDK!
It’s no secret that we love Python here at Dropbox, so we hope you’ll try out the SDK and send us your thoughts. This blog post will show you how to install the Python SDK and help you get started making calls using the Dropbox API v2.
If you’re familiar with API v1, you’ll notice a few differences in this new SDK. For more context on v2, including an overview of how we’re updating the Core API,
We’ve recently introduced a new feature to the Dropbox API:
/save_url. This new endpoint lets app developers upload files to Dropbox by just providing a URL, without having to download the file first. It’s analogous to the Dropbox Saver but works without any user interaction.
To try out
/save_url, you’ll first need an OAuth access token, as you would to use any Core API endpoint. There are a number of ways to obtain an access token, and our OAuth guide will help you get started.

A few weeks ago, I gave a talk at the Twilio Signal conference about our new SwiftyDropbox SDK.
I demoed PhotoWatch, a sample app built with SwiftyDropbox that displays photos from your Dropbox on your Apple Watch. PhotoWatch uses two methods from the SwiftyDropbox SDK to interact with Dropbox:
