Dropbox API gets a major update with support for /delta calls
Dropbox has some good news for the developers who use their APIs in their products and services.
The company has released two APIs that can be used on production ready apps:
The single biggest feature request since we launched the API is the ability to keep up with changes to files in a user’s Dropbox. So, we’re happy to announce that the /delta call is out and ready to use in production!
It returns a list of files and folders that have been added, deleted, or modified since the last time you called /delta, allowing you to update your local state incrementally to match.
Dropbox further added about another feature for the developers:
Last, we’ve also added a new SDK for OS X developers (in addition to our existing iOS SDK). This will make distributing through the Mac App Store easier. If you’ve already used the iOS SDK, the OS X SDK will be a snap.
