Dropbox Integration

wiffzack.gastro is a commercial point-of-sale software.

We perform automated backups in the background, and want to directly store them on Dropbox.

The configuration is performed through our coniguration interface (WinForms application). We use the method as proposed in the dropbox blog https://blogs.dropbox.com/developers/2014/04/dropbox-authorization-in-a-windows-forms-app/ with an embedded webbrowser control the flow is as follows:

  • Select the backup location of choice (dropbox):

* Enter your credentials:

  • Confirm access request

  • And you are done

Dropbox is then accessed in a cron job fashion in the background
