Usage

###Watch node

Watches for file events on Dropbox.

By default all file events are reported, but the filename pattern can be supplied to limit the events to files which have full filenames that match the glob pattern.

The event messages consist of the full filename in msg.payload property, the filename in msg.file, the event type in msg.event and the dropbox.js API PulledChange object in msg.data.

###Input node

Downloads content from Dropbox.

The filename on Dropbox is taken from the node filename property or the msg.filename property.

The downloaded content is sent as msg.payload property. If the download fails msg.error will contain an error object.

###Output node

Uploads content to Dropbox.

The filename on Dropbox is taken from the node filename property or the msg.filename property.

You can pass in content either as a filename by setting the localFilename field or msg.localFilename property, or you can pass in content directly using msg.payload.

The file will be uploaded to a directory on Dropbox called Apps/{appname}/{appfolder} where {appname} and {appfolder} are set when you set up the Dropbox application key and token.
