Using the dropBox API from a ColdFusion server.

You can get more information on the DropBox API from: https://www.dropbox.com/developers

Currently only features implemented are:
* Account Info
* Create Folder
* Get metadata on Folders/Files
* Upload / Retrieve Files
* Create Accounts
* get photo Thumbnails
* Copy / Move / Delete files / folders

Extract the ZIP and point your web server to wwwroot

Update your Consumer Token and Secret and call back url in Application.cfc then hit


You'll then be directed to DropBox login, then you'll be asked to confirm access to your account then you'll be redirected to your url set in the authCallBack variable in Application.cfc

You will be redirected to your server again, authResponse.cfm will then store the Access Token and Secret in session but in normal situations you will store this in a database against your user so you can access their account.

Going to http://yourserver/createDBAccount.cfm will create an account for your users if they don't have one. This can be fully used once you are out of development mode, the code is there to retrieve the access code of the new account for later use.
