Integrating your rails app with Dropbox
At thredUP, we recently started using dropbox to do more than just store and share files among employees. We've now integrated it with a couple of our applications so that certain data sets get archived there. We used to just send them by email if they were small enough or save them to a server and then download them manually. Now, with dropbox, they get dropped in a shared folder and the people that need access, have it. Implementing this integration had a couple hiccups along the way and I want to share how we did it.
