Download the PHP package spatie/dropbox-api without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package spatie/dropbox-api. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

This is a minimal PHP implementation of the Dropbox API v2. It contains only the methods needed for our flysystem-dropbox adapter. We are open however to PRs that add extra methods to the client.

Here are a few examples on how you can use the package:

We invest a lot of resources into creating best in class open source packages. You can support us by buying one of our paid products.

We highly appreciate you sending us a postcard from your hometown, mentioning which of our package(s) you are using. You'll find our address on our contact page. We publish all received postcards on our virtual postcard wall.


You can install the package via composer:


The first thing you need to do is get an authorization token at Dropbox. Unlike other companies Dropbox has made this very easy. You can just generate a token in the App Console for any Dropbox API app. You'll find more info at the Dropbox Developer Blog.

With an authorization token you can instantiate a Spatie\Dropbox\Client.

or alternatively you can implement Spatie\Dropbox\TokenProvider which will provide the access-token from its TokenProvider->getToken(): string method.

If you use oauth2 to authenticate and to acquire refresh-tokens and access-tokens, (like thephpleague/oauth2-client), you can create an adapter that internally takes care of token-expiration and refreshing tokens, and at runtime will supply the access-token via the TokenProvider->getToken(): string method.

(Dropbox announced they will be moving to short-lived access_tokens mid 2021).

or alternatively you can authenticate as an App using your App Key & Secret.

If you only need to access the public endpoints you can instantiate Spatie\Dropbox\Client without any arguments.

Dropbox Endpoints

Look in the source code of Spatie\Dropbox\Client to discover the methods you can use.

Here's an example:

If the destination filename already exists, dropbox will throw an Exception with 'to/conflict/file/..'

The upload() and move() methods have an optional extra 'autorename' argument to try and let dropbox automatically rename the file if there is such a conflict.

Here's an example:

If you do not find your favorite method, you can directly use the contentEndpointRequest and rpcEndpointRequest functions.

Here's an example:

If you need to change the subdomain of the endpoint URL used in the API request, you can prefix the endpoint path with subdomain::.

Here's an example:


Please see CHANGELOG for more information what has changed recently.



Please see CONTRIBUTING for details.

You can run composer pint to run the code style fixer, and composer phpstan to run the static analysis.
