Build Dropbox and Zapier into your development workflow

As a developer, automating your busywork is important. When it comes to collaborating with other teams or moving files around various systems, a little code can help you—and your teammates—focus on the tasks that matter.

Dropbox is all about simplifying the way you work, which is why we teamed up with our friends at Zapier to pull together some ways they can help you automate your development with Dropbox. 

Here are three Zapier automations for Dropbox with S3, Github, and more so you can optimize workflows and put your creative energy to work.

API v1 Shutdown Details

As previously announced, API v1 is being retired on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.

If you still have not migrated to v2, check out the migration guide for more details.

Last week, we announced a preview of the new Dropbox API v2, aimed at simplifying the experience of developing with Dropbox. As part of this effort to simplify our platform, we’ve decided to deprecate the Sync and Datastore APIs over the next 12 months.

If you’re one of the majority of developers using the Core API, your app will be unaffected. For those using the Sync or Datastore API,

A preview of the new Dropbox API v2

[EDIT June 3, 2015] This post has been updated to reflect the latest API v2 syntax.

We’ve been working on a new version of the Dropbox API for a while and it’s time to show you what we have so far. To start, we’ve implemented a select set of endpoints that highlight the big structural changes underway, and we’d like to know what you think!

What’s different?

Overall, we’ve simplified our use of HTTP. For example, most endpoints always use HTTP POST, including those that return structured data. Requests take JSON in the body and responses return JSON in the body.
