Installation and Usage
The getting started guide will help you get your first dropbox.js application up and running.
The dropbox.js API reference can be a good place to bookmark while building your application.
If you run into a problem, take a look at the dropbox.js GitHub issue list. Please open a new issue if your problem wasn't already reported.
This project mostly follows semantic versioning.
Until the library reaches version 1.0, changes to the public API will always carry a minor version bump, such as going from 0.7.2 to 0.8.0. Patch releases (e.g. 0.8.0 -> 0.8.1) may introduce new features that don't break the public API.
The development guide will make your life easier if you need to change the source code.
This library is written in CoffeeScript. These notes can help you understand if that matters to you.
