NAME

Net::Dropbox::API - A dropbox API interface

VERSION

Version 0.6

SYNOPSIS

The Dropbox API is a OAuth based API. I try to abstract as much away as possible so you should not need to know too much about it. This is how it works:

    use Net::Dropbox::API;

    my $box = Net::Dropbox::API->new({key => 'KEY', secret => 'SECRET'});
    my $login_link = $box->login; # user needs to klick this link and login
    $box->auth;                   # oauth keys get exchanged
    my $info = $box->info;        # and here we have our account info

See the examples for a working Mojolicious web client using the Dropbox API.

FUNCTIONS

login

This sets up the initial OAuth handshake and returns the login URL. This URL has to be clicked by the user and the the user then has to accept the application in dropbox.

Dropbox then redirects back to the callback URL defined with $self->callback_url. If the user already accepted the application the redirect may happen without the user actually clicking anywhere.

auth

The auth method changes the initial request token into access token that we need for subsequent access to the API. This method only has to be called once after login.

account_info

account_info polls the users info from dropbox.

list

lists all files in the path defined.

copy

copies a folder copy($from, $to)

move

move a folder move($from, $to)

mkdir

creates a folder mkdir($path)

delete

delete a folder delete($path)

view

creates a cookie protected link for the user to look at. view($path)

metadata

creates a cookie protected link for the user to look at. metadata($path)

INTERNAL API

_talk

_talk handles the access to the restricted resources. You should normally not need to access this directly.
