Dropbox UI Picker

Install Workflow...

This workflow contains at least one Python script. Only use it if you trust the person who shared this with you, and if you know exactly what it does.

I understand, install the workflow!

This is a workflow for Editorial, a Markdown and plain text editor for iOS. To download it, you need to view this page on a device that has the app installed.

Description: Workflow uses Python script to open UI file picker for Dropbox. Files from Dropbox then saved in 'Local' folder in Editorial.

Hi, having some trouble with this. The dropbox file picker comes up abnormally small such that I can't see or pick any of my files. Any idea what's wrong? Thanks!

Run Python Script ?
Source Code
# 1. Go to http://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps (log in if necessary)
# 2. Select "Create App"
# 3. Select the following settings:
#    * "Dropbox API app"
#    * "Files and datastores"
#    * "(No) My app needs access to files already on Dropbox"
#    * "All file types"
#    * (Choose any app name)
# 4. On the newly-created app's summary page, click the "Generate"
#    button under "Generated access token"
# 5. Copy the generated token (a long string of gibberish) and
#    paste it below (replace YOUR_TOKEN_HERE).
# 6. (optional) Open the "wrench" (actions) menu in Pythonista and add
#    this script, so you can run it from everywhere.

# Notes:
# All selected files are downloaded into the root folder of the Pythonista
# script library. If a file with the same name already exists, a numeric
# suffix is appended automatically.
