    Version: 1.02 (21/01/2013)

    Special thanks to Ashley for his precious help.

    Download Dropbox.rar

    Hi there, it's been a while I didn't take time to do a plugin.

    I've always been frustrated to not be able to access to my files with JS.

    This is the main reason I decided to do this Dropbox Plugin.

    This is adapted from the Victor Costan's Dropbox.JS library.

    The Dropbox.JS library is Copyright (c) 2012 Dropbox Inc., and distributed under the MIT License.

    Please test it and report me if you find any bugs, since I didn't take all the required time to do this beta test phase.

    Also, I should write a help file since there are some conditions/expressions which'll need to use action before.

    For the most experimented, you can read this discussion between Ashley and me here.

    To give you an idea, here is a little helpful screenshot:

    In order to make it working, you have to registered your application on the Dropbox site and get an API key. Here are the steps.

    1. Go to the App Developer Dropbox section and click on 'Create an app'.

    2. Set "Core API", then enter your "Appname" (which'll be displayed when the user'll be asked to accept the access to his dropbox), its description and choose if you want the user access to the Application folder or to the full user's Dropbox.

    Then, click on 'Create'.

    You should use App folder as much as possible since it is the most safety mode for your dropbox's files (in case of applications bugs, etc.

    3. You'll be able to find your App key and App secret on the next page.

    I encourage you to don't use your App and App secret though.

    You have to encode it.

    4. Go to the Dropbox API key encoder, and enter your App key and App secret then click on 'Generate the encoded key' and copy it to your clipboard.

    5. Paste your encoded key to the "Encoded API key" property in the Dropbox plugin's properties.

    You can now play with the differents actions, conditions and expressions.

    I'm around here if you need help


  • Pretty good so far. Dropbox access is definitely working.

    Under actions I take it that "Generate a public link" would be "Dropbox.getPublicLink("pathname")" as a string?

    Also I take it that "Dropbox.getListFolder("pathname")" would also return a string, but is that formatted so I can parse it with tokenAt?

    Thanks btw been wanting this myself quite a while.

  • <font color=red>Please guys,</font><font color=green> download it again! I fixed a bug occured when exporting with the minifier.</font>


    It returns a string like "folder1,folder2,..." but you can change the separator in the "Access to a file or folder" action, in order to tokenAt then.

  • Awesome!

    This is exactly what i needed for my app.

    Thank u for creating this septeven <img src="smileys/smiley20.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Savvy001 You're welcome ! Let me know if you need help on this one ;)

    I just try a database app with and it works perfectly, really usefull !

  • septeven

    Wow, this is realy a perfect app for anyone who wants their users to save data online.

    It works flawless for me.

    I have a Question/Request:

    At this point the dropbox plugin wants to login from the start of the gamelaunch.

    Can u add a feature so we can let the user activate the plugin via an event.

    That way the user doesn't "have" to use the dropbox plugin if he/she does not have internet.

    In my app i have a sync option embedded in my Menu.

    So the login would be logical to open a webbrowser only when the user visits that menu section, instead of "right at the start".

    Is that possible?

    Kind Regards.


  • Savvy001

    Look at the 'Connect mode' property and set it to "Manual"

    Then, use the 'Log in' action.

  • septeven

    Super! u where way ahead of me.

    Kind Regards.


  • V.1.01

    Improve and fix some minor things.

  • For those who'll need help with this plugin, I just finished to write an help for the multimedia fusion version. I'm gonna write the construct 2 version soon. Read it here

    The MMF2 version is a little bit different than the C2 one, but it's enough close for helping.

    Also, you'll be able see the first idea of layout for the website that I'm writing to host all my creation, plugins and tools.

  • Nice Website Layout!

    Please notify me when its done <img src="smileys/smiley20.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Kind Regards.


  • version 1.02

    [Change] - 'Access to informations of a file or a folder' (deprecated) and 'Access to a file or a folder' actions have been merged in one 'Access to a file or a folder' action.

    You won't need anymore to specify if the request is for a file or a folder. Dropbox plugin will check it by itself.

    Please, let me know if the deprecated thing occurs you any issue.

    [Remove] - Some console logs.

    [Change] - Help link (for now, it redirects to the mmf2 version help page).

  • Great plugin thanks

  • Hi, thank you for your plugin. Does it work on Android with CocoonJS?

  • sicetix

    I don't know since I've never used cocoonjs, but please let me know if it does.
