A guest post by Alon Pe’er
Just like any good open source project or feature, it started with a personal wish of mine to see it implemented.
Following a request by one of my clients, making me wish I could do it in my own projects as well, I sat down and looked at the module’s API as well as the Dropbox API and available libraries.
I bumped into 2 possible solutions:
Although the dropbox-php provides a full solutions using the Dropbox OAuth protocol, it relies on more than one extensions and packages, and even though I have them available, it’s more than likely that fellow Drupalers won’t have them on their server.
So I went with the simple Dropbox Uploader library that only lets me upload files to Dropbox (all I really need, really).
The patch is available on Drupal.org (for Drupal 6 at the moment).
I’d love to get feedback regarding performance, security etc. Also, if you know the dropbox-php project and want to create an integration with it as well, then I’d love to see it in action.
