Dropbox module for Titanium Appcelerator

We have released our second module in the appclerator marketplace. A Dropbox Appcelerator module.

Dropbox is the well known cloud storage facility and we are using it for an up coming product. So first we needed to integrate that into Appcelerator with a native module.

Being a much more extensive API than the one for Testflight we needed something better to document it. Seeing that it was actually javascript we were documenting we plumped for JSduck. I place the commnets directly into the .m files.  Extract them with a simple sed script and then put the whole thing through JSduck. Here is the result

The only way I could see the module being tested properly was an app that called all members of the API. And it also makes a great way for customers to evaluate and learn to use the product. So all the source to the example app is on GitHub https://github.com/ndastur/DropboxTi

As for me it is better to use data room services. They are more reliable.

When you combine the power and security of on-premise software and efficiency and scalability of the cloud in a hybrid system you end up with the best of both worlds and can greatly reduce the security risk associated with cloud computing and often times have a more cost effective solution to boot.
