We’re excited to announce that we’ve been working with Stack Overflow on the launch of their new Stack Overflow Documentation.
We’ve created a dropbox-api tag to organize answers to common questions about the Dropbox API and provide sample code snippets that you can easily use in your app. For example, here’s a topic for sharing a folder with a few snippets of sample code.
We’re also looking for your help! Stack Overflow Documentation allows the community to add their own topics and samples and collaborate on solutions via comments and chat.
Edit 06/23/2017: Deprecation timeline updated to match the one described in our recent blog post.
As of today, Dropbox API v1 is deprecated. This includes both the user endpoints (a.k.a. the Core API), and the team endpoints (a.k.a. the Business API).

Today we’re excited to launch Dropbox API v2!
We announced a preview of API v2 in April, and have continued to update and improve the API based on your feedback. As of today, Dropbox API v2 is ready to be used in all your Dropbox-connected apps. Thank you to the hundreds of developers who have already tried out API v2 in preview.
Our goal with API v2 is to provide a simpler, more consistent, and more comprehensive API. In addition to the API itself, we’re also introducing clearer documentation,
[EDIT June 18, 2015] Sample code for linking a user was updated to show how to check if a user has already been authorized.
[EDIT June 3, 2015] This post has been updated to reflect the latest SwiftyDropbox SDK, v0.2.
We recently announced our new API v2, and now we’re excited to bring you our first of many new SDKs for the new API… in Swift!
A lot of iOS apps integrate with Dropbox already, and we think Swift is the programming language of the future when it comes to building iOS apps.
