Hello, guys. I have decided to attempt to make a dynamic news application in one or two days as a project for my school, which would download a file from dropbox (through the public link) containing information about articles and links to them/any images that are used.
The problem i am facing, however, is getting the files to download seamlessly (without alerting the user, at least no prompts) and then parsing them.
So, my questions are:
1.) Is there a way one can download a file from a URL regardless what platform the export is done on (android, website) and (later) parse it as a text string, line by line, without modifying the parameters of the hosting server (e.g. i have no access to modifying those http headers on dropbox)?
2.) How would one parse such a file in C2, by reading it line by line (is there a way to retrieve the line count of a string and then do a loop from 1 to stringcount, then retrieving the text for each line of the file, for it to be interpreted)?
