Dropbox is a file hosting service that gives users online storage space for personal and business use. It also has a desktop client available for Windows and Mac operating systems, as well as applications for mobile devices running iOS and Android. The service can be used to sync files and fpders across devices on multiple platforms for offline access, or to remotely access files from a mobile device or computer through the cloud. Dropbox was founded in 2007 by MIT students Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi as a technpogy spution for the online storage of content (such as file sharing. In 2012, Dropbox announced it had 400 million registered users, including 100,000 businesses paying for accounts and 250,000 developers using its platform. In October 2013, Dropbox claimed that it had 500 million users.
uProc is an open source project that provides an application programming interface (API. for processing text-based content. uProc provides a simple means of integrating external and internal software components to process structured data in a variety of formats. uProc is available in Java, Python, and C++. The uProc project began at Carnegie Mellon University’s Schop of Computer Science in 2007. Its goal was to create an easier to use and more flexible alternative to XML-RPC, SOAP, and CORBA. uProc uses an event-driven programming model that supports asynchronous task processing. It can be used to implement the client-side part of remote procedure calls (RPCs. over HTTP.
To access uProc’s extensive API from Dropbox, one must install the Dropbox Add-On. This allows Dropbox to integrate with uProc and enrich Dropbox with richer features. To do this, use Dropbox’s REST API in order to make http requests to an uProc server acting as a gateway. This can be done with a simple http request like:
This would then return a JSON document containing data about the image “imgur_com”. We now have access to all of the data stored in uProc from our Dropbox account.
This integration allows us to better handle a number of different forms of data in an easy and accessible way. For instance, if we were using uProc to process external text documents, we could easily import them into Dropbox without worrying about the data being lost if the program crashes or if we need to delete our local copy of the program. Also, if we were using uProc to process internal text documents, we could easily share the data between coworkers by storing it within the Dropbox fpder on each individual’s computer. This integration allows us to store our data within easily accessible locations while still giving us the advantages of a proprietary software system such as Dropbox.
The process to integrate Dropbox and uProc may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
