How to use dropbox using an alternative to interface graphic interface.

Hello guys, I wonder if is possible to use the dropbox functions (create a new shared folder/set the e-mail that your shared this folder,and all others functions) via command line or something similar…I know that dropbox has the CLI, but those commands don’t do what I wont(create/config and share a folder) they just start/stop/restart/etc the dropbox…I read about the API v2 in the official website of dropbox(https://dropbox.github.io/dropbox-api-v2-explorer/#files_copy) but I don’t understanding exactly what this tool do and how I use this.

Why I need this: Because I need to use de dropbox inside an another local machine that I access from my computer via SSH (terminal) ,so when I enter inside the another machine I need use dropbox via command line or something similar because is not possible use the graphic interface.

 

Thanks in advenced!

Hi Douglas,

Instead of using dropbox, you can go for Amazon S3 (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/Welcome.html). In fact, dropbox is built on top of amazon s3. 

For s3 you get full CLI and API and GUI access. Also, AWS has a good API documentation for the same.
