Dropbox Selector

This package contains two data types.  
1.  PMG Dropbox Selector: used to browse a users dropbox and user can select a file.  The file info is saved in umbraco.
2.  PMG Dropbox Save: allows a user to save a media item to dropbox.  For now this ONLY works on images inside of the media section because I haven't figured out how to generate the public url for a node using the umbraco angular services.
You will need to sign up for a dropbox dropins api key here:  https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps/create
Enter your api key on the data type.
PMG Dropbox Selector
Add the data type to your document type and you can now select a file from dropbox.
The information is stored in the following format (JSON):
    // Name of the file.
    name: "filename.txt",
    // URL to access the file, which varies depending on the linkType specified when the
    // Chooser was triggered.
    link: "https://...",
    // Size of the file in bytes.
    bytes: 464,
    // URL to a 64x64px icon for the file based on the file's extension.
    icon: "https://...",
    // A thumbnail URL generated when the user selects images and videos.
    // If the user didn't select an image or video, no thumbnail will be included.
    thumbnailLink: "https://...?bounding_box=75&mode=fit",
Assuming you have a document property named "dropbox",  you can extract the json info like this:
 var dropBoxFile = Json.Decode<Dictionary<string, string>>(Umbraco.Field("dropbox").ToString());
PMG Dropbox Save
Just add it to a media type and the user can click to save their media image file to dropbox.  This won't work from localhost.

You must touch the web.config/flush cache after installing.
This package uses the dropbox dropin javascript component.  It doesn't allow much configuration of how it looks when it opens.
