Previously in our blog, we described how to Streamline File Collection by using the file request endpoints in our API, however you don’t have to write a full integration to take advantage of the API! Dropbox recently announced a partnership with Tray.io, a flexible General Automation Platform that lets users integrate and automate their business processes. As a developer, building automation workflows on the Tray Platform can save hours of manual work or custom app development.
Let’s say it’s 9:05 AM on Tuesday, and you just realized that yet again, you have to collect reports from your team.
Dropbox announced an integration with Google Cloud to enable users to create, open, and edit Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files in Dropbox.
Soon, using the Dropbox API, developers can integrate with G Suite content. New endpoints and extensions to existing endpoints will help Dropbox developers work with these files to serve shared users. This post outlines the changes and updates you should be aware of when handling Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides with the Dropbox API.
G Suite files will be returned by files/list_folder,
Dropbox is all about enabling teams to easily collaborate around content. There are many use cases for integrating directly with the Dropbox API, but there are also some scenarios where integrating with a workflow automation platform will allow you to ship a great solution faster than building them yourself. Whether you’re building out workflows for your company, customers, or yourself, Workato uses the Dropbox API to help you automate processes around content in Dropbox and other applications.
Workato can poll for Dropbox events or receive events using webhooks.
The DBX Platform helps bridge the silos between people and content by connecting the tools they use at work. We are excited to share the story of four developers who integrated with Dropbox to streamline workflows for their users.
This year we hosted Dropbox Developer Meetups in San Francisco, Seattle, and New York to connect with and inspire our local communities of developers. At each of these events, we conducted a panel discussion with developers to learn about their integrations with Dropbox, the use cases they solve, and their experience building with the Dropbox APIs. At our New York City event,
Back in December, we hosted our first developer meetup in San Francisco since the launch of our new DBX Platform. We continued that momentum in January with a meetup in New York. We had over 100 developers RSVP for the event and came close to hitting our capacity in our NYC office. While sufficiently stuffed full of pizza and Momofuku cookies, we had in depth discussions on what’s possible with the DBX Platform.
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.
