morgon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


just a quick question before I go to bed (hoping for an answer in the morning :-):

I would like to automate uploads to my dropbox-account and just started looking into Net::Dropbox::API.

The trouble is that dropbox uses OAuth, and so it seems to be a little tedious to write a script that would be able to upload a file to dropbox without any human intervention because when you do a "login" via Net::Dropbox::API you get back a url where you then have to supply your credentials until finally dropbox sends a redirect etc etc before you can have your access-token (or a process similar to that - I've just played with it for some minutes).

My questions is now:

Has anyone already made a script to fully automate dropbox-uploades without any manual intervention that I could simply steal?

Many thanks!
