This package provides programmatic access to Dropbox from R. The functions in this package provide access to a full suite of file operations, including dir/copy/move/delete operations, account information and the ability to upload and download files from any Dropbox account.
- When using rdrop2 functions, remember that the file path is no longer your R working directory; it is the file path on the Dropbox cloud. The AMMonitor functions dropboxMetadata, dropboxMoveBatch, and dropboxGetOneFile allow us to work with Dropbox cloud files through our working directory paths in R, and read in the token stored in the.

Accessing Dropbox on Shiny and remote servers
If you expect to access a Dropbox account via Shiny or on a remote cluster, EC2, Digital Ocean etc, you can leave the cached
oauth file in the same directory, or pass the
token explicitly to
drop_auth. You can also save the output of
drop_auth into an R object, sink that to disk, and pass that as a token. If using on Travis or similar, you should consider encrypting the oauth cache file to prevent unauthorized access to your Dropbox account. If you have multiple tokens and accounts, it is also possible to override the environment token and explicitly pass a specific token for each
