I wasn’t the first one to write a gem for Dropbox, and currently there’re a few ones available. If you need to use the API, you probably have to spend a bit of time researching which of the Ruby libraries suits you better. I’m writing this post to summarize the current status of all these gems and help you out making a choice.
Here’s the list of all libraries available in Rubygems:
|Gem||API||Supported endpoints||Latest release||Downloads||Documentation|
By Jesus Burgos Macia (me!)
By Dylan Waits
By Tammy Pop
|v2||7||October 2017||7K+||Readme file|
By Tim Morgan
|v1||deprecated||July 2011||100K+||Readme file|
By Dropbox Inc.
By Base Lab
|v1||deprecated||May 2015||115K+||Readme file|
By Casey Scarborough
|v1||deprecated||June 2013||5K+||Readme file|
So, it’s clear that you can discard the bottom 4 libraries.
Now it should be easier for anyone to make a choice looking at the table data. But if that’s not enough, a sneak peek at the documentation link will hopefully clear out your doubts.
