Dropbox - A way of letting you keep up with changes to files and folders in a user's Dropbox.

A way of letting you keep up with changes to files and folders in a user's Dropbox. You can periodically call `/delta` to get a list of "delta entries", which are instructions on how to update your local state to match the server's state. If you use the `path_prefix` parameter, you must continue to pass the correct prefix on subsequent calls using the returned cursor. You can switch the `path_prefix` on any existing cursor to a descendant of the existing `path_prefix` on subsequent calls to `/delta`. For example if your cursor has no `path_prefix`, you can switch to any `path_prefix`. If your cursor has a `path_prefix` of "/Photos", you can switch it to "/Photos/Vacaction". When `include_media_info` is specified, files will only appear in delta responses when the media info is ready. If you use the `include_media_info` parameter, you must continue to pass the same value on subsequent calls using the returned cursor. **Important:** Unfortunately it is not possible to model correct Dropbox response with Swagger specification, due to [nested array](https://github.com/swagger-api/swagger-spec/issues/40) usage in delta response. Successful result [will return](https://gist.github.com/ando-takahiro/5203137) an array of delta `entries`. Each delta entry is a 2-item list of one of the following forms: * `[, ]` - Indicates that there is a file/folder at the given path. You should add the entry to your local state. The metadata value is the same as what would be returned by the `/metadata` call, except folder metadata doesn't have `hash` or `contents` fields. To correctly process delta entries: * If the new entry includes parent folders that don't yet exist in your local state, create those parent folders in your local state. * If the new entry is a file, replace whatever your local state has at path with the new entry. * If the new entry is a folder, check what your local state has at ``. If it's a file, replace it with the new entry. If it's a folder, apply the new `` to the folder, but don't modify the folder's children. If your local state doesn't yet include this path, create it as a folder. * If the new entry is a folder with the `read-only` field set to `true`, apply the read-only permission recursively to all files within the shared folder. * `[, null]` - Indicates that there is no file/folder at the given path. To update your local state to match, anything at path and all its children should be deleted. Deleting a folder in your Dropbox will sometimes send down a single deleted entry for that folder, and sometimes separate entries for the folder and all child paths. If your local state doesn't have anything at path, ignore this entry. **Note:** Dropbox treats file names in a case-insensitive but case-preserving way. To facilitate this, the `` values above are lower-cased versions of the actual path. The last path component of the `` value will be case-preserved.
